Electronic Media: Possible ‘Roswell’ News

Thanks to AU3Delta and Tammy for this :)

Hey all, I just found this posted through “Aint it cool news” in a bit about “Angel” returning to the WB. Here is the link: http://www.emonline.com/news/web051101.html

And the gist of the article on “Roswell”

Although “Roswell” was not listed in The WB’s preliminary schedule plans last week, network officials declined to confirm if there has been a cancellation of the 9 p.m. Monday drama. A spokesman for The WB said moderately rated “Roswell,” which is produced by 20th Century Fox Television, could still be in consideration for a midseason run during the 2001-02 season.

On the heels of The WB losing 20th and Regency Television’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to UPN in last month’s bidding war for the 2001-02 rights, there has been rampant speculation that if The WB let “Roswell” go, UPN would snatch up its rights for a scheduling slot next season. Meanwhile, WB officials have confirmed that “Buffy’s” current 9 p.m. Tuesday companion, “Angel” (also produced by 20th and Regency), will return to The WB’s same time slot next fall.
