A 'Clueless' Series Reboot Is Officially in the Works
The show will center on Stacey Dash’s original character, Dionne Davenport.
Last year, reports revealed that CBS TV was in the process of remaking Clueless into a TV show. Now, Variety has exclusively learned that the 1995 cult classic movie, which originally starred Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy and Stacey Dash, has been officially confirmed and is set to premiere on Peacock. The untitled comedy series is described as:
“A baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sun-glasses wearing, oat milk latte and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong number two Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans. How does Dionne deal with the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school, while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her best friend?”
The project will be produced by CBS Television Studios, alongside Corrinne Brinkerhoff, Scott Rudin, the original film’s producer Robert Lawerence, Eli Bush and Tiffany Grant. Additionally, Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey will serve as the reboot’s writers and executive producers.
Stay tuned while we wait for more details on the show’s cast and official release date.
