Comedian and would-be chanteuse Sandra Bernhard and the M.C.E.G. production company will begin shooting her current one-woman off-Broadway show, Without You I'm Nothing, next month for a theatrical film.

At season's end on ABC's Hooperman, Susan (Debrah Farentino) was pregnant with Hooperman's (John Ritter's) child, and it seemed that the marriage knot would soon be tied. But when the show kicks off this fall, Susan will have a miscarriage and then abandon Hooperman, leaving Farentino without a part. "Unfortunately, Debrah was playing a character we're no longer happy with," says Hooperman writer-producer Rick Kellard. "We felt it would open the series up if we didn't have a permanent relationship. Hooperman won't be out dating, because we have to handle the '80s kind of responsibility, but he'll be a single man again." No comment from Farentino. Musicals make strange bedfellows—how else to explain the teaming of sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury and songwriter Jimmy (Wichita Lineman) Webb?

"It took me a while to get my mouth in gear because I had been reading him since I was a kid in Elk City, Okla. But I must say we've had the sweetest collaboration." The show, based on Dandelion Wine, the 1957 Bradbury novel about an adolescent boy, will be performed in workshop this fall in New York, and the pair hopes the play will land on Broadway in 1989.

In CBS' upcoming sitcom Murphy Brown, Candice Bergen plays a sophisticated TV reporter (tagged by the executive producer as "Mike Wallace in a dress") back on the beat after a sobering session at the Betty Ford Center. Bergen says the premise is realistic. "I know very few people at this point who haven't been [to Betty Ford]," she says. "I think I'm something of a rarity, actually, because I've never gone."
