UPN COMMITS ROAD RAGE
UPN isn't going down without a fight. Variety
reports that the struggling network has ordered the reality series Road Rage
, which finds contestants facing off in demolition derby vehicles. "If we're trying to get in touch with the inner boy and reach our target audience, there's nothing better than cars smacking into each other," said UPN president/CEO Dean Valentine
. "It marries demolition derby with great storytelling. Car freaks will particularly enjoy the show." Or, just freaks.
