WILL ARLISS' CLIENT GO THE CHAPEL AND GET MARRIED?
Published July 17, 1998
On the next episode of HBO's "Arli$$" (Sunday, 9:30pm ET), AMM client Amadou M'Bow is in love. And the NBA center from Senegal plans to marry his beloved Miss Lisa Klein of Long Island. When Arliss insists that Amadou sign a pre- nup, Lisa balks, wedding bells are put on hold and Amadou plans to hang up the high-tops. Cameos: Kenny Anderson, Jerry Colangelo, Mia Hamm and John Randle (THE DAILY). SENIOR PROJECT: Brian Robbins and Mike Tollin, exec producers of "Arli$$," are currently in post-production on an "unusual sports movie" called "Varsity Blues," according to James Sterngold of the N.Y. TIMES, who writes that the film could indicate whether the MTV generation can "learn to take sports seriously as a moral guide?" "Varsity Blues" stars Jon Voight as "an overbearing football coach" and "Dawson Creek" star James Van Der Beek as a second-string QB "suddenly thrust into the limelight." The film is due in theatres this fall (N.Y. TIMES, 7/17).
