The Family Friendly Programming Forum is a consortium of 40 major advertisers looking to get family-friendly programming on prime-time TV. The marketers include Ace Hardware Corp., AT&T Corp., Coca-Cola Co., Ford Motor Co., General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble Co. and Wal-Mart.
One way the group aims to "reclaim" the networks' early time slots from more controversial programming is by providing seed money for family-oriented scripts.
The event was held Wednesday night in Los Angeles. The show will be televised on the ABC on Friday, August 9 at 9 pm.
