Question: Danger Theatre ...

Question: Danger Theatre sounds somewhat like The Rerun Show, but in that series, actors would re-enact scripts from vintage sitcoms in each half hour.

The Rerun Show, which debuted on NBC in August 2002, featured a troupe of comic actors (Ashley Drane, Candy Ford, Daniele Gaither, Danielle Hoover, Brian Beacock, Mitch Silpa, Don Reed and Paul Vogt) reshooting classic-comedy scripts with an entirely different interpretation than was presented the first time around. How different? Well, a Partridge Family script, for example, featured a fantasy hook-up between Laurie and Keith Partridge.

Put together by Mad TV co-creator David Salzman, the show also featured take-offs on such classics as The Jeffersons, The Facts of Life and What's Happening!!, but didn't catch on. It was off the air within the month.
