          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).
