NBC is developing a half-hour comedy series adaptation of the 1994 cult movie “Reality Bites”.
The story revolves around a recent college graduate and budding filmmaker in Houston who shares an apartment with her Gen X slacker friends in the early 1990s.
Ben Stiller, who directed and had a supporting role in the original, is set to executive produce. Screenwriter Helen Childress is on board to write the pilot.
Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn starred in the original. No word yet on who will play their small screen incarnations.
