ABC wants to turn Live in Front of a Studio Audience into an event franchise

  • “It is something that we looked at as a franchise if it worked, and we didn’t know if it would work,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said of the May 22 sweeps event re-creating episodes of The Jeffersons and All in the Family. “We didn’t know if people would still care and it was nice they did. With something like that we would look to return it, not on a weekly basis, I think these things are tentpoles around which we can build sustaining weekly scripted programming, to use as a big circulation play.
