Spears Pregnancy Prompts Nickelodeon to Consider Airing Ellerbee Special

Dec 21, 2007  •  Post A Comment

With Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old star of Nickelodeon’s series “Zoey 101,” announcing she’s pregnant, the kids network is considering airing a special on love and sex from Linda Ellerbee.
Ms. Ellerbee has done Nick News specials on other sensitive topics, including same-sex parents and the impeachment of President Clinton.
“This is a great opportunity for parents at this moment to talk to their kids about this—more important, to listen to their kids about this,” Ms. Ellerbee told the Associated Press.
Nickelodeon has not said much about Ms. Spears, sister of singer Britney Spears, or the show, other than releasing a supportive statement.
“We respect Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation,” the statement said. “We know this is a very difficult time for her and her family, and our primary concern right now is for Jamie Lynn’s well-being.”
The third season of “Zoey 101” ends Jan. 4. The network has already shot the fourth and final season of the series and was scheduled to air it later in 2008.

  1. This is fine, use it as a teaching moment.
    But honestly, what are the similarities between celebrity teen with skank sis role model raised by apparently absentee parents and your average kid?
    I would hope that Ms. Ellerbee (I still say “And so it goes” all the time) would find the time in any special to examine the differences between celebrity teens and your average high school sophomores.
    And yes, I realize that regular teens get pregnant all the time. But they certainly don’t have the resources that the Spears family does.
