Today in unnecessary reboots, Bravo has announced it is redeveloping Heathers, the 1988 cult classic starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater, for the small screen:
In the updated take, Heathers picks up 20 years later, with Veronica (Ryder's character) returning home to Sherwood with her teenage daughter, who must contend with the next generation of mean girls: the Ashleys: the daughters of the surviving Heathers.
Lick it up, baby. Lick. It. Up.
What's with the tears? Oh yeah, that's the reaction to Kristen Wiig's final episode of SNL last night, in which Mick Jagger got to wish her away, before everyone and their mother came out to say farewell. Even Chris Kattan was there! The video can be seen here and tissues aren't included.
NBC dangled the carrot of hope and disappointment during last week's upfronts when they finally revealed that fan-favorite Community would return for an abbreviated fourth season. Today, it's been revealed that showrunner and antagonist, Dan Harmon, was fired from his show and, unsurprisingly, had some words about it. To wit:
Why'd Sony want me gone? I can't answer that because I've been in as much contact with them as you have. They literally haven't called me since the season four pickup, so their reasons for replacing me are clearly none of my business. Community is their property, I only own ten percent of it, and I kind of don't want to hear what their complaints are because I'm sure it would hurt my feelings even more now that I'd be listening for free.
It's been reported that Harmon will still bear a "consulting producer" title, but with other staffing changes, it's unclear if the show will even be the same program that the internet has taken so many screencaps of.
