The club is back in session. TV Land has announced they’ve ordered a new pilot based on the 1996 film, The First Wives Club.
The pilot comes from New Girl writer Rebecca Addelman and Sex and the City writer Jenny Bicks.
Based on Olivia Goldsmith’s 1992 book, the original First Wives Club film starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler, and Goldie Hawn as three wives who exact revenge on their ex-husbands who have moved on to younger women.
Set in San Francisco, the new series will be an update of the movie and focus on a new group of friends dealing with life, love, and loss.
From TV Land:
Putting a fresh twist on Paramount’s iconic 1996 film, the pilot, to be written by Rebecca Addelman (“New Girl”) and executive produced by Jenny Bicks (“Sex and the City,” “The Big C”), will take place in modern day San Francisco. The story revolves around three women – friends and classmates in the 90s – who reconnect after their close friend from college dies in a freak accident. When they discover that they are all at a romantic crossroads, they band together to tackle divorce, relationships and life’s other annoying challenges. Paramount Television will produce for TV Land.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of the 1996 film? Would you watch the show?
I love it, and will definitely watch.. I read the book and then saw the movie and loved them both, the book more of course, but the movie was great, so I’m excited to see a show about it.
