After announcing a script deal in March, TV Land has ordered a pilot for Heathers, a dark comedy series based on the cult 1988 film. Leslye Headland (Sleeping With Other People, Bachelorette) is attached to direct, and the pilot is expected to shoot later this fall.
Reimagined as an anthology, Heathers will be set in the present day, as our heroine deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. The script is written by Jason Micallef (Butter), and Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment.
Heathers marks the first anthology series project for TV Land. It also marks the latest attempt to mount a Heathers TV series reboot, most notably a sequel series written by Mark Rizzo and supervised by Jenny Bicks, which was in the works at Bravo.
Headland is repped by UTA and Anonymous Content.
