CBS Is Developing a ‘Stripes’ TV Series Adaptation

stripesAnother day, another TV reboot. According to Variety, CBS has put into development a single-cam series adaptation of the 1981 film Stripes, which originally starred Bill Murray and was directed by Ivan Reitman. Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, and Zach Cregger of The Whitest Kids U’ Know are attached to write and executive produce the series, and Reitman is also attached to executive produce and direct should the project land a pilot order. Like the movie, the series will center on “a perennial rebellious outsider who finally finds his purpose in life when he joins the US military and must unite a group of ragtag eccentrics.”
