Give Lifetime Any Chance, They’ll Take It


Lifetime Television has acquired the rights to Laverne & Shirley from Paramount Television, the network said Wednesday.

The network said it will begin airing the classic sitcom Monday, March 8, weekdays at 11 a.m. and noon (EST/PST).

The show joins the women’s network’s comedy block of The Golden Girls, Designing Women, Mad About You and The Nanny, with Will & Grace coming aboard in 2005.

The Happy Days spinoff ran on ABC from 1976-83.
