NBC's Not Out of the 'Jungle' Yet
January 15, 2009 4:07 PM
"Lipstick Jungle" still has a pulse. But barely.
NBC has never officially canceled the Brooke Shields soap opera. There were rumors of its demise last month, but the network was careful to say it wanted to see how the show did when it returned in January.
NBC Entertainment President Angela Bromstad on Thursday again repeated NBC's position that the show could still return next year. She said it would depend on the network's development.
After her formal TCA session with reporters, Ms. Bromstad said the network is talking to other networks—including some inside NBC Universal (cough, Oxygen)—about ways to do a deal that would keep the show alive.
Still, Ms. Bromstad didn't sound too hopeful, indicating the show's Friday ratings have been challenging.
