"I was just surfing the net when I came across this article. It seems that the creators of the hit comedy That 70s Show are creating a similar comedy to be set during the 1980s! How cool is that. For more info, please read below...|

Fox Goes, Like, Totally '80s?
You can almost hear "Tainted Love" playing in the background.
TV viewers who've grown comfortable with bell-bottoms and feathered hair may have to brace themselves for Jordache jeans, jelly bracelets and Flock of Seagulls--the creators of That '70s Show are developing a new Fox sitcom set in the Reagan-rrific early '80s.
Fox is close to making a 13-episode commitment to Carsey Werner Mandabach for the new ensemble series, which will debut either in midseason or fall 2002.
The as-yet-untitled show is the, like, totally radical brainchild of That '70s Show creators Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner and Mark Brazill and executive producer Linda Wallem. Fox is no doubt hoping to capitalize on the success of its '70s teen hit, but the new project will not be a direct spinoff, nor will it feature any of its cast members.
Just like That '70s Show, however, the new show will likely use the time warp to goof on '80s pop culture. (Quick, somebody dig up Crockett and Tubbs. We smell a cameo.)
A spokesman for Carsey Werner Mandabach said Friday that discussions with Fox are ongoing, but "nothing's been finalized."
Prior to That '70s Show, the Turners were writers for Saturday Night Live (news - Y! TV), then turned big-screen scribes for flicks like Wayne's World and Tommy Boy. Later, they created NBC's long-running alien comedy 3rd Rock From the Sun, as well as Fox's (very) short-lived John Goodman vehicle, Normal, Ohio.
With 3rd Rock now gone from the TV galaxy, the producers should have no problem splitting time between the '70s and '80s. (Just remember to adjust your watches accordingly.) That '70s Show, starring Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon, Danny Masterson, Mila Kunis and Wilmer Valderrama, has been renewed through 2003 and kicks off its fourth season September 18. "
I was looking at Temp. Island and I saw a preview for That 80's show...DO YOU PEOPLE KNOW HOW LONG I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS DAY??? I THINK MY GOD IS NICE TO ME NOW! All I know is that I'm going to watch it and I going to jizz all over the show. BTW: While I was looking for info on the show I found an 80's board...hehe.
