WB: ‘HOUSE’ TOO PRICEY

Warner Bros.’ WB Network will not pick up the Warner Bros. TV series “Full House,” which was dropped by ABC earlier this year.

Price was the deciding factor for WB Network. Warner Bros. TV wanted a high license fee for the show, which is wrapping up its eighth season. ABC passed on the show over price as well.

While “Full House” might have brought new viewers to WB and helped it launch a new night, the show would likely have clashed with WB’s current programming, which tries to be more cutting-edge.

Another factor may have been news that “Full House” star Lori Loughlin is in negotiations to co-star in an ABC network pilot starring Tony Danza being developed by TriStar TV.
