Clueless TV series in the works
This modern reimagining will see Dionne trying to solve Cher's disappearance.
A TV series based on classic 90s film Clueless is currently in development.
This modern reimagining will adopt a more dramatic tone and has been described “as a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latté and Adderall-fueled look" at L.A today.
According to Deadline, it’ll focus on Dionne (played originally by Stacey Dash) solving the mystery of kind-hearted queen bee Cher’s (Alicia Silverstone) mysterious disappearance.
Will and Grace’s Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey will write the script with Corinne Brinkerhoff and Robert Lawerence, who worked on the original film, serving as executive producers.
As to be expected from a project in such early stages, a cast and director have yet to be found. It’s not known whether Silverstone and Dash will make some kind of appearance in the series.
This won’t be the first time Amy Heckerling’s film has been adapted for TV.
Paramount Network’s Clueless series previously ran for three seasons between 1996 and 1999 with Rachel Blanchard taking over as Cher and Dash reprising her role as Dionne.
In October last year, it was reported that Girls Trip director Tracy Oliver was also working on a remake of the film with Glow’s story editor Marquita Robinson.
While the project is reportedly drawing a lot of interest from both streaming sites and TV networks, a broadcaster has yet to be announced.
