Pax TV woos ‘Mrs. America’

B'caster to screen 22nd annual pageant

MIAMI — Family-oriented broadcaster Pax TV will put the spotlight on America’s wives and moms when it screens the 22nd annual Mrs. America Pageant, Sept. 26.

To be staged at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, the special will air 9-11pm (ET/PT), and feature singer Freda Payne and segs from David Cassidy’s MGM Grand stage show.

Hosts will be Florence Henderson of “The Brady Bunch” and Michael Young, producer-presenter of Pax TV’s daily magazine “Great Day America.”

“Unlike the other major pageants which discriminate against married women, Mrs. America Pageant celebrates the vitality, virtuosity and contributions of wives and mothers,” Pax TV topper Bud Paxson said.

The creation of indie TV producer David Marmel, pageant has been televised only once before, by ABC in 1988.

Meanwhile an insider said a planned special on “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” which had been held up by litigation from CBS, will now likely go ahead on Oct. 25.

Pax TV will start to strip “Dr. Quinn” reruns in primetime on Sept. 14.
