Pax, Eye end ‘Quinn’ spat

Special will air on Pax TV, with Eye watching

NEW YORK — Looks like Pax TV’s “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” special will make it on the air after all.

CBS, which last month went to court to halt the wannabe web’s two-hour “Salute to ‘Dr. Quinn’,” has reached an out-of-court settlement with Pax TV which will allow the spec to go forward (Daily Variety, Aug. 10). Eye web officials declined comment, but Pax TV topper Lowell “Bud” Paxson says the legal tussle is over.

“We paid CBS no money. We signed no agreement with them. They have withdrawn the suit,” Paxson told Daily Variety.

Details not offered

Paxson declined to offer further details of the settlement, saying both sides had agreed that the content of discussions regarding the settlement “would not be revealed.”

However, insiders say Pax will be allowed to air clips from “Quinn,” interview the stars of the show and use any behind-the-scenes footage it can obtain from media reports on the show.

Other official behind-the-scenes outtakes and footage will not be used in the spec. About 20 days before the spec will air, the Eye web’s attorneys will be given a tape of the event to review and make sure it complies with the terms of the settlement.
