The new project is being described as “Mean Girls meets Riverdale meets a Lizzo music video”…
Another Clueless TV series is in development at CBS TV Studios (via Deadline) who may funnel it out to The CW network, home of the Arrowverse and Riverdale.
The “dramatic” new show will have hour-long episodes, and will follow Dionne, Cher Horowitz’s best friend in the 90s feature film and also in the previous – and much more fluffy – Clueless TV series. Dionne was originally played by the now-controversial media figure Stacey Dash, and Dash reprised the role in the spin-off show.
This new version of Clueless will be “a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latté and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when the high school queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong No. 2 Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans” and tell the story of how Dionne will deal with “the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school, while also unravelling the mystery of what happened to her best friend, all in a setting that is uniquely 2020 L.A.”
The rebooted Clueless project is being written by Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey (Will & Grace) and is being guided by executive producer Corinne Brinkerhoff (American Gothic).
More as we get it.
