Tunnel vs. Tunnel?
by Doc on Jan.26, 2002, under Television
There’s a storm brewing in the eddies of spacetime. Seems that not only has Fox is developing a new Time Tunnel series based on the original by Irwin Allen, but ABC, where the original aired, is also developing a series based on the 1964 book by William Jenkins, and both seem ready to go to court. At issue is whether the original series was truely based on the book, which would mean 20th Century Fox’s rights (they produced the original series) would have expired.
