ABC won the bidding war to make 80's movie "St. Elmos Fire" into a TV show in early August but we haven't heard much since then other than they are writing it.
There will be 6 new characters and the movie will take off where the movie left. It is being compared to friends and they are OK with that. The show will be an hour long. Right now, it is still in the stage of being written. ABC just owns the rights.
Too bad it's on ABC is all I can say. They pull the plug too quickly on new shows or screw with the times of the show moving it everywhere. Dirty Sexy Money is a fine example.-Dr.FB
