Forthcoming ‘Clueless’ TV reboot described as ‘Mean Girls meets Riverdale meets a Lizzo video’

CBS Television Studios is gearing up for a reboot of Clueless — one that makes Cher Horowitz the subject of a mystery.

CBS TV Studios owns the TV rights to the beloved 1995 feature film, written and directed by Amy Heckerling and starring Alicia Silverstone as Cher. The movie spawned a follow-up sitcom, created by Heckerling, with Rachel Blanchard in the lead role that ran for three seasons on ABC and UPN.

The new version, from writers Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey (Will & Grace, Man With a Plan), would center on Dionne (played by Stacey Dash in both previous iterations), Cher's best friend and lifelong right-hand woman. When Cher disappears, Dionne must take on the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her friend.

The new version is described as Mean Girls meets Riverdale meets a Lizzo video, set in a high school that is uniquely 2020 L.A. The studio is shopping the project and has interest from multiple bidders, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Corinne Brinkerhoff (No Tomorrow, Jane the Virgin), who has an overall deal with CBS TV Studios, will executive produce the Clueless reboot with producing partner Tiffany Grant and one of the film's producers, Robert Lawrence. Heckerling is not involved in the project.

CBS TV Studios is also developing a Walker, Texas Ranger remake at The CW and produces that network's current series Nancy Drew, Charmed and Dynasty, along with a sizable portion of the series on CBS and streamer CBS All Access and Netflix's Dead to Me, Unbelievable and Insatiable.

I know they don't mean that she's involved but the fact that Lizzo's name is anywhere near this tells me all I need to know.

Alicia may have not wanted to touch TV since it was seen as "unbecoming" for an actor back then.

Yeah, I just read it's because she had a development deal with Columbia-TriStar. I guess they prevented her from doing it? I dunno. It still kinda irks me when a great film becomes a tv show but with a different cast. Like

Mean Girls is maybe the overlap but you can’t convince me the same people who like Riverdale would even look at Lizzo

The fact that until recently movie actors didn't want to touch tv roles cause it was 'beneath them' or 'where careers went to die' and now they are all clamouring to get parts there now that Disney owns the film industry :sasha:

Networks like HBO and older series like Twin Peaks revolutionized the game with storytelling in regards to television. Once networks saw that you can have production mirroring high quality movies, everybody wanted in. 

Storytelling is magnified and for some series, it really shows through. You can tell a much longer story, create larger worlds, television really has superseded film.
