`Bedford' more dramatic off-screen

TV Preview

March 29, 2006|By DAVID ZURAWIK | DAVID ZURAWIK,SUN TELEVISION CRITIC

A youth drama with lots of sex is not exactly something new for the WB network. Remember Dawson's Creek?

What makes The Bedford Diaries, a WB drama centered on a university seminar in human sexuality, noteworthy is that it was censored last week in the wake of a Federal Communications Commission crackdown on indecency. On Feb. 15, the FCC levied about $4 million in fines against network-owned stations that carried programs ranging from Without a Trace (CBS) to The Surreal Life 2 (WB).

On TV The Bedford Diaries premieres at 9 tonight on WNUV (Channel 54).
