The premier sassy Black pal is getting her personal sequence and I’ve a number of questions. Selection broke the information that NBC’s Peacock has formally nabbed an in-development reboot of Clueless that facilities on Dionne Davenport relatively than the well-loved Cher Horowitz.
Although the sequence is at present untitled, its premise appears notably fleshed out with Selection describing it as “a child pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sun-glasses sporting, oat milk latte and Adderall-fueled take a look at what occurs when queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong quantity two Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans.” The sequence follows Dionne as she offers with the pressures of being the hottest lady in faculty whereas unraveling the thriller of what occurred to her finest pal. It seems like lots for one present, however we’re open to seeing how issues develop as manufacturing begins.
Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey have been tapped to put in writing and govt produce with Corrinne Brinkerhoff, Scott Rudin, and the authentic movie’s producer Robert Lawerence, Eli Bush, and Tiffany Grant serving as govt producers.
Each the titular 1995 movie and TV adaptation had been centered on Cher with Dionne serving as her trustworthy right-hand girl. Stacy Sprint portrayed Dionne in each iterations and, regardless of her current persona, the former actress made her mark as the sharp-tongued and eternally fashionable character. Whoever takes over the position in Peacock’s reboot may have some killer platform pumps to fill.
The sequence joins the record of rebooted reveals set to stream on Peacock, with its Saved by the Bell spinoff being the closest to airing. It seems like the reboot is angling for a comedy and thriller mesh, equally to TBS’s Search Occasion. Or possibly it is going to err on the aspect of the extra dramatic, like Fairly Little Liars or Veronica Mars, which I might positively have an interest in investigating additional. Both method, it is secure to say the new sequence will probably be nothing like its predecessors, which is a daring threat with such a beloved cult basic. We’re just a little weary from the description — which sort of seems like a torrent of Gen Z buzzwords to attract consideration — however we’re hopeful! Cross your fingers and keep tuned as we lookout for extra particulars as pre-production begins.
