UPN stations in the mood to ‘Forgive’

Let bygones be bygones, or just get over it — that’s the premise of a new syndie daytime strip, “Forgive or Forget,” from Fox’s Twentieth Television.

The hourlong strip has been picked up for a June launch by seven major-market UPN O&Os in the Chris Craft/United Television group, including WWOR New York and KCOP Los Angeles. “Forgive or Forget” will be hosted by radio personality Mother Love (Daily Variety, Sept. 23).

Part confessional and part gameshow, “Forgive or Forget” will feature guests who are seeking forgiveness from relatives, friends and co-workers. Guests tell the tale of their transgression and then take a gamble on whether the people involved are willing to forgive, or at least forget. In some cases, the wronged parties will be tucked away behind a large door on the set.

Twentieth’s deal with Chris Craft/United for “Forgive or Forget” comes at a time when sales activity in the syndie biz is heating up in anticipation of the industry’s annual sales confab in New Orleans next month. Station deals are said to be imminent on two other new syndie strip prospects for 1998, “Judge Joe Brown” from Worldvision Enterprises and “Judge Mills Lane” from Rysher Entertainment.
