Get­ting fooled by Full House

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

FANS of 1990s sit­com Full House have been vic­tims of an elab­o­rate joke. The show’s ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Jeff Franklin was re­ported as hav­ing had talks with Warner Bros about bring­ing back the show which turned the Olsen twins into stars. Trou­ble is the al­leged re­port was made by Rhode Is­land news­pa­per the New­port Gazette. The ‘‘orig­i­nal ar­ti­cle’’ was pub­lished on en­ter­tain­ment site Screen­rant.com as an April Fools’ Day joke ear­lier this year. The Gazette has ac­tu­ally been out of com­mis­sion since 1799. A Screen­rant.com rep­re­sen­ta­tive has now taken to Twit­ter to clear up the ru­mour: ‘‘Some­one picked that up as le­git (le­git­i­mate) news? Last year, a few broad­cast sites even picked up the Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles April Fools’ post.’’
