TV Land Greenlights “Heathers” Series Pilot

Following the previously announced script deal in March, TV Land has revealed that they have given the green light to a pilot for a pitch-black comedy TV series based on Daniel Waters’ 1988 cult classic film “Heathers” at Lakeshore Entertainment.

The series, which will be reimagined in an anthology format, is set in the present day and follows a young woman who deals with a very different but equally vicious group of girls all named Heather.

Leslye Headland (“Bachelorette) will direct and Jason Micallef (“Butter”) penned the script. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will executive produce and shooting is slated to kick off later this fall.
