CBS Planning A “Stripes” TV Series

CBS is set to develop a single camera comedy TV series based on the classic 1981 Bill Murray and Harold Ramis comedy feature “Stripes” which Sony Pictures TV and CBS Television Studios are developing.

The story of the new take will center on a rebellious outsider who finds his calling when he joins the U.S. Military. Ivan Reitman, who directed the 1981 film, is reportedly attached to both direct and executive produce.

Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, Zach Cregger, Julius Goldy Sharpe, Tom Pollock, Amie Karp and Peter Fried will all executive produce.

Warren Oates, P. J. Soles, Sean Young, John Candy, John Larroquette, John Diehl, Conrad Dunn and Judge Reinhold also starred in the original which grossed over $85 million during its run.
