TV Land Is Developing a ‘Heathers’ Comedy Anthology Series
The 1989 film Heathers might be headed to TV Land in a new TV adaptation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is currently developing a single-cam comedy anthology series based on the film written by Jason Micallef (Butter). The project is described as “a black comedy that takes place in the present day” that follows a new set of Heathers. Here’s more from THR:
It features a new set of popular-yet-evil Heathers — only this time the outcasts have become high school royalty. Heather McNamara (originally played by Lisanne Falk) is a black lesbian; Heather Duke (Shannen Doherty) is a male who identifies as gender-queer whose real name is Heath; and Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) has a body like Martha Dumptruck.
