THE FOLKS at PBS
may not return their calls, but Eddie October and Al Berman, the producers who
gave us Tommy Lee Goes to College, think they have a sure TV winner with the
Pillow Fight League, a WWE-like circuit on which women with stage names like
Ursula Anvil, Betty Clock'er and Eiffel Power (below) try to knock each other
out with sacks of feathers. Says October, who will begin negotiations with
networks next week, "I'm gay, and even I know that girls pillow fighting is
sexy." ... Larry David can't curb his enthusiasm for the Jets. The Seinfeld
creator, who was raised in Brooklyn, met with G.M. Mike Tannenbaum and coach
Eric Mangini in L.A. last week to make some suggestions before the NFL draft.
The team won't say what advice he offered, but it should take it seriously.
Last year David suggested to Jets brass that they draft Vince Young, who ended
up winning the rookie of the year award with the Titans.... Try to act
surprised: Will Ferrell has another sports project. Ferrell, whose Blades of
Glory topped the box office in its first two weekends, is producing a comedy
pilot for HBO about a washed-up big leaguer who can only find work as a
substitute gym teacher.
