when building expression, if data has double quotes as part of string content, the filter doesn't work. 

I tried escaping the double quotes but still doesn't seem to work.  no data shows up for the match/filter.  Any ideas how to handle double quotes as part of filter expression?
filter.Expression = String.Format("{0} = \"{1}\"", fieldName, items.First().Replace("\""\\\"));
Example: ProgramGroup = "I WANNA MARRY \"HARRY\""
