Lee preps syndie ‘Fashion’ show

NEW YORK — While Pamela Lee made it clear in court that she won’t do gratuitous sex in future projects, “Pretty Woman” scribe J.F. Lawton plans to tap into a so far underexploited asset of the former “Baywatch” vixen: her sense of humor. William Morris’ Mark Itkin is working to package the syndicated series “Fashion Force,” created by Lawton and the actress.

Lawton, who showed a deft humorous touch with the script for the unproduced Howard Stern vehicle “The Adventures of Fartman,” describes the series: “It’s six years in the future and the whole obsession with celebrities has gone insane, to the point where models and stars are running government posts, but are pursued by nuts and need incredibly good-looking bodyguards to take care of them.” Lee heads an elite, sometimes scantily clad force that guards the rich and famous.

“We’re hoping to get cameos from real celebrities and fashion people, who’ll get to predict what they’ll be doing in six years,” Lawton said. “Bill Maher might be president, Howard Stern a rabbi, and Naomi Campbell the ambassador to Burma. We’ve just begun pitching it and got strong reaction from foreign markets. One German buyer offered $300,000 an episode, because Pam’s so huge in that country.”

In the meantime

While he waits for a domestic buyer to surface, Lawton is writing and directing “The Blue Angels,” a telepic about the Navy’s flight demo team, for ABC’s “Wonderful World of Disney.”
