NBC is planning a TV series continuation of the 1999 teen erotic sensation “Cruel Intentions”. The network has reportedly bought a script with a significant commitment from the film’s original director and writer Roger Kumble.
Upon finding his late father’s journal, Bash learns of the family legacy and trades his small-town Kansas upbringing for a scholarship to a prestigious San Francisco academy where he soon finds himself in a world of sex, money, power and corruption.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair also starred in the original film. Kumble is attached to direct the pilot, and co-write with scribes Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross who crafted this past summer’s “Cruel Intentions Musical” in Los Angeles.
Rosin and Ross will serve as executive producers on the potential series alongside Neal Moritz and Pavun Shetty.
