    I wonder if this is considered an article, or just a glorified set of tweets. For those who were still wondering, “Fresno” is movie, not a TV show. The film is in post production, and slated for release next year.

    The title ‘Fresno’ has been taken. It was a short-lived parody of the 80’s prime time soaps ‘Dallas’, ‘Dynasty’. and ‘Falcon Crest’. I still remember Carol Burnett and [I think] Charles Grodin hilariously trying to maintain their dignity when their limo breakdown forces them to sit in the rear-facing seats of a station wagon! I lauged out loud!

      obviously ‘laughed’, not ‘lauged’. Why is there not a DELETE option? Also, ‘Edited for clarity’ my aunt Fanny!
