Following on the heels of Britney’s 16-year-old sister Jamie Lynn Spears being pregnant, the Associated Press reports that Nickelodeon is considering doing a special about teen pregnancy. The network is talking with veteran newswoman Linda Ellerbee.
“I think it’s important that something be done,” Ellerbee said. “But I think it’s important that it be done in a measured way, and not just to feed the beast of news stories… This is a great opportunity for parents at this moment to talk about this — more important, to listen to their kids about this.”
A spokesman for Nickelodeon confirmed the discussions but said a decision has not yet been made.
