BKS Ent. sleeps on ‘Dream’

Actioner pulled in 0.9 average

The “Dream” appears all but over for Roger Moore now that BKS Entertainment has stopped production on rookie actioner “The Dream Team” with no taping dates set, prompting frustration from agents and heavy doubt about the future of the low-rated series.

The weekly action hour had come in last place within the genre this season pulling in a 0.9 average after a national debut on Sept. 25. Moore played the leader of an elite squadron of intelligence agents.

Taping was halted several weeks ago while sources say the production company was deciding whether to pursue the series or not. Now that BKS Entertainment has David Hasselhoff in its fold for “AKA Picasso,” few expect “Dream Team” to make it to NATPE, especially without new episodes set to air. The only syndicated series to be officially canceled this year has been Tribune’s strip “Richard Simmons’ Dreammaker.”

Meanwhile, agents to some of the stars are upset that their clients’ futures are in the gray.

“I don’t know what’s going on with ‘Dream,’ ” gruffed one agent. “Hopefully they’ll decide sometime soon.”

BKS execs were unavailable for comment.
