The movie that created a whole new language of slang and launched the careers of Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd is coming to television!
Deadline reports exclusively that a re-imagining of the classic film Clueless as a television series is coming to streaming network Peacock. Clueless has been adapted for TV once before, running for three seasons and featuring some members of the original cast. This series will be told from the perspective of Cher’s friend Dionne and is set in the present, while the original series kept the film’s 1990s setting (and comedic tone). In the synopsis released by Deadline, the dramatic, hour long series is described as
a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latté and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when the high school queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong No. 2 Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans. How does Dionne deal with the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school, while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her best friend, all in a setting that is uniquely 2020 L.A.?
There is no word yet on casting or a release date for the reboot.
