The single-camera comedy from writer Justin Adler (Better Off Ted) finds Lloyd single after long ago being dumped by Diane. His life hasn’t exactly turned out like he thought it would. But then Diane surprisingly returns home, inspiring him to “dare to be great” once again, win back his girl and reboot his life.

The project is being produced by Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV.

Are you excited to revisit Diane and Lloyd? Or are you heartbroken to imagine a future in which the two split?

    This makes me feel how I did when rumors spread that Justin Bieber would be playing Marty McFly in a Back to the Future remake. There is only one Llyod Dobbler.

    • Tracy says:

      I hope they never remake Back to the Future…it’s perfect the way it is and no one could top the original and very talented cast!

  7. Tran says:

    Let’s hope the TV version of Say Anything won’t get picked up as a series even if the boom box is playing Peter Gabriel’s In Your Eyes.

  8. Laura says:

    NO! No, no, no. And also no.

  9. AnnieM says:

    Wow…this sounds really terrible.

  10. Tricia says:

    I’d watch the crap out of this. I’d hate myself for it, but I’d watch it.

    You’ve got to cast Lloyd right, though. I’m just gonna throw out Michael Scott Foster just to be able to say I was first.

  11. Kristine says:

    Good Lord NO!!!! Don’t tarnish the memory of a great movie.

  12. TVLine_FanGirl says:

    This sounds like a terrible idea. The movie had a perfect and happy ending, about young love. If they could pull it off it could be awesome, but most likely it will be awful. Couldn’t they just do this plot line with out ripping off the movie and all it’s signature characters? I imagine many people under the age of 30 never saw the movie.

    They should pickup where the movie left off! Showing the ups & downs of their relationship!

  14. selfie says:

    Dear God, please “NO”!

  15. Susan says:

    I loved the movie and the chemistry between John Cusack and Lone Skye. This is a show I would definitely watch but would want them to get back together again. They belong together and no, I can’t imagine a future with them apart.

  17. Tracy says:

    I can’t see anyone but Cusack as Dobbler and I don’t see him doing TV! Plus, I never thought Dobbler and Diane would stay together…they are like Zoe and Wade on Hart of Dixie…the chemistry may be there but smart, overachievers don’t stay with funny losers for life!

  18. Ugh says:

    I read an article this morning that said Cameron Crowe is dead against this, and while the network doesn’t need his permission to make the show, they may very well not go ahead without his blessing. I hope that’s true. Those characters left off where Cameron Crowe wanted them to be, and nobody should mess with that. And I for one, don’t need one of my favorite movies from my high school days ruined by some ridiculous remake. Come up with your own ideas!
