FOX plans to get Lucky.

FOX plans to get Lucky.
Based upon the movie Series 7: The Contenders and Britney Spears’ hit single, FOX will air Lucky starting next August. Produced by the camera guy from Making the Band who got the footage of Ashley Parker Angel naked in the shower, the show will follow a group of 18 teenagers and twentysomethings as they try to get lucky–while being chased by their current significant other, who will be armed with a paint gun and a scarlet letter. Extensive background checks will be conducted by using the search engine Magellan, and FOX plans to cancel the show after the first few minutes if the ratings aren’t better than those of The West Wing and Friends combined.
