Another ’80s sitcom may be making a comeback. Deadline reports both Leonardo DiCaprio and Jessica Biel’s production companies are developing a reboot of The Facts of Life.
A spin-off of Diff’rent Strokes, the original sitcom followed the residents of all-girls boarding school in upstate New York. The cast included Charlotte Rae, Kim Fields, Lisa Whelchel, Mindy Cohn, and Nancy McKeon. The show ran on NBC from 1979 to 1988.
Now, it looks like The Facts of Life may be returning to the small screen 30 years later. According to Deadline, Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way, Jessica Biel’s production company, Iron Ocean Films, and Sony Pictures TV are developing a reboot.
Few other details have been released, but the studio is reportedly searching for a writer for the project.
