It's still up and down for Linda Ellerbee.
First came ABC's cancellation of "Our World," the historical news show co-anchored by the acerbic Ellerbee. Then, she and Columbia Pics rammed heads over a planned film adaptation of her autobiography, "And So It Goes," and it almost became history.
Ellerbee flew to L.A. last month and ironed out differences with the cola conglomerate (the studio had wanted to take license with certain nonfiction elements) and all is said to be well on the Bernie Brillstein-produced project.
All is not well, however, with the ABC/"Our World" situation.
In July, Ellerbee announced she'd take her "World" over to public TV via her own Lucky Duck Prods. ABC insists that it has rights to the name, if not the show itself.
