Best Development Season...EVER!

Fox Says 'L'Chaim' to 'Past Life'

Samantha Who

By today's supercharged standards, this is already old news. But yes, Fox has picked up "Past Life" to series, according to a person familiar with the matter. The news broke over at Variety earlier today.

The green trade also has the latest on the fight to keep "Samantha Who" alive. It suggests ABC wants to turn the show into a single/multicam hybrid, a la "How I Met Your Mother." I had heard buzz last week that ABC executives have also let it be known that they'd be "thrilled" to have "Samantha" star Christina Applegate simply start over in a whole new show.
