QL -- Movie news?
the following was posted by Joy on the SBFF

DPB is writing a feature, a pilot for a series he wants to do in Australia, starting preliminary work on Quantum Leap for Sci-fi channgel and writing the spin off with Don McGill, which DPB will also direct AND he's answering all my questions coming from you. He will say no more on any of the above, so please don't ask me questions on any of it.
Now, please note that even though Joy says the source is reliable, I am not
involved with the group and know nothing about the poster. So... please
don't take this as gospel, unless you have joined the yahoo group and done your
own analysis on the source. :-) The last we heard, Don had yet to be
contacted about the movie.
For the record, though, when someone sent me an email that Scott was in negotiations to star in a Trek series, I didn't believe it either. So if you are curious, here's the link to join the jag group. (See? I didn't do much research, but I did a little bit...)
thanks to Joy

TV Guide -- Ask Matt
Question: I have heard the Sci Fi Channel is making a Quantum Leap movie that might be the start of a series. Since that report, I have heard no news about production. Being a fan of Quantum Leap, I am curious to know, is a TV movie being made? — Chris
Matt: It's still in the developmental stages, and at the moment the plan is still to make a movie, then develop it into a series. The twist this time is that the movie and series may be built around a female Leap-er.

TV Guide --
Question: Greetings from Mexico. I just want to know why Quantum Leap got canceled back in 1993. I love that show so much (in my opinion, it's the best ever). What are your thoughts on the show? (I agree with you on Six Feet Under. That show is so overrated.) — Adrian
Matt: NBC bounced the show around a lot, but even so, a four-year run is pretty good for a prime-time network fantasy series that played like an anthology. I always enjoyed it, and thought Scott Bakula (now on Enterprise) and Dean Stockwell were great together. The good news for you is that cable's Sci Fi Channel is reviving the concept for a new series next year.
Dean -- Contact Address
Jill, the moderator for a Yahoo Discussion Group called the Sassies (Stockwell Appreciation Society) as well as their website has informed me that
...Dean is no longer is with United Talent Agency and his new address is:
c/o Diverse Talent Group
1875 Century Park E., Suite 2250
Los Angeles, CA 90067
thanks to Jill
News -- Scott on QL movie
At the MSN chat, yesterday, Jo asked Scott about the Quantum Leap movie and here is his answer.
JoOrlando1 in Onstage1: ...Scott, a Universal rep announced plans for a QL TV movie leading into a series. My question is with you in Enterprise and Dean on Jag, what would be the earliest [the submit window must have run out of room at this point, I know it happened to me a few times]]
Scott_Bakula_Live says: That would not be something that would include me. That's a USA Channel thing, they own the rights to "Quantum Leap."
thanks to Jo and Scott
QL Movie Update --
Scott not approached
Apparently -- according to PQL fan club's "source" in LA -- "Scott has not been contacted regarding the movie." Which leaves me to note that Scifi/Universal is just bandying his name about in order to get attention (and actually, that's a good thing, in a way -- it means his name carries some weight now; on the other hand, not happy with Scott being "used")
Margaret was also told that Don Bellisario had not been contacted either (he read the same announcement we did), so...
Here is our Directive from the Top:
Our LA friend says he hopes we boycott the movie and any new series, because it won't be the Quantum Leap we know and love. He also suggested we should write to someone and make our thoughts known.
and here is that address, again
again quoting PQL fan club (and you can visit their site for details):
if you'd like to write to SciFi and let them know what you think of a Quantum Leap movie without Scott and Dean, [emphasis Pam's] the address is:
Ms. Bonnie Hammer, President
1230 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10020
Go get 'em, gang.
Personally, I have no interest in any Quantum Leap which does not involve Scott and Dean (and someone who can actually write Quantum Leap)

QL book rankings
Julie Barrett has gotten her QL book Quantum Leap A-Z
Her page has gone missing.. try Amazon.com
The old book by Louis Chunovic from Citadel Press (I think) has been updated to include the final seasons. The pictures are wonderful but the information contained in the book is far from accurate. You can search for this book at amazon.com
Hal Schuster's book called The Making of Quantum Leap
Most of the info is pulled from the internet archives at ziggy.cisco.com , but there are two new tributes from Sally Smith and Anita Kilgour that you may find interesting.
The book is by Harper Prism, unauthorized, and is $5.50 in the U.S.
I only bought it as my name is in the credits, although I really didn't end up being much help, and declined after hearing the book was unauthorized.
In the future, I think I'm going to be much more interested in whether a book on QL is accurate, than whether it is authorized.
This section was moved to the Where to Buy Scott stuff page
This is a totally fan-originated, -owned, and -operated site, and is not official, or associated with Scott Bakula or Bakula Productions in any way. It is maintained because I want to share any information I may have access to, with all Scott fans everywhere, all in one place, and as quickly as possible.
This site was originally the idea of Sue, in the fall of 1995
