Fox vows 'Color' will be unaffected by creator's leaving

December 20, 1992|By Verne Gay | Verne Gay,Newsday

"In Living Color" fans, take heart: Fox says that the Sunday hit show will be completely, absolutely unaffected by the departure of its creator, Keenen Ivory Wayans.

How so? The network said that Matt Wickline and Sandy Frank, two writers from the first season, will now become consultants on the show. Mr. Wayans, as you may or may not know, left in a huff because he didn't want the network to air reruns of the show he created on Thursdays.

As Daily Variety, which first reported the breach last Thursdaynoted, he feared it would detract from the new episodes now airing on Sundays (Fox also sparred with him constantly over show content).

Variety noted that as part of Mr. Wayans' settlement with thnetwork, he would not trash his former employer. Which may explain why he didn't return a call.
