Pop Attention Span

Trying to keep up with the zeitgeist

Another flashback from ABC Family

ABC Family has shown a knack for casting that invokes nostalgia in Gen X viewers (which is admittedly odd, considering the network’s target demo isn’t Gen Xers) by including the likes of Molly Ringwald and Josie Bissett in The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Charisma Carpenter and Thomas Calabro on Greek among others.

Now, the network is planning another nostalgia trip with a new comedy pilot starring Clarissa Explains It All/Sabrina the Teenage Witch star Melissa Joan Hart and Blossom heartthrob Joey Lawrence. Hart would play a member of a political dynasty who takes in her niece and nephew after her sister is sent to prison, while Lawrence will be the manny she hires to help manage her new family.

Now, I wonder what it would take to get the network to takeĀ  a look at revisiting the youthful absurdity of The Adventures of Pete and Pete
