Inside Move: Fox offers a ‘Simple’ to ‘Obnoxious’ lead-in

Conversations still under way for skein's sequel

Call it “The Simple Life 1.5.”

Less than a week after the first season finale of Fox’s reality hit “The Simple Life” comes word the net is planning to air a “lost” episode of the Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie starrer Monday at 8:30 p.m. It’ll serve as a lead-in to the second episode of “My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance.”

Net asked Bunim-Murray Prods. and 20th Century Fox TV a few weeks ago if it was possible to wring one more episode out of the footage shot by producers months ago. The answer: yes, but not before the season finale aired.

Editing is still under way on the half-hour, which follows at least one or two “bonus” episodes of what was supposed to be a six-week run. Fox also aired an hourlong reunion special last week.

Conversations are still under way for a “Simple Life” sequel. The Leding family won’t be a major part of the spec, but other details are still being debated.

“The Simple Life” first season DVD — sans the “lost” episode — hits stores today.
