Say Anything Series Shelved Following Cameron Crowe's Objections

Say Anything TV Series

You can all put your boomboxes back in the closet: NBC will not move forward with a Say Anything television series.

Following objections from director Cameron Crowe, 20th Century Fox TV has shelved the project, which was intended as a sequel series to Crowe’s 1989 film, our sister site Deadline reports.

Crowe, who reportedly had no knowledge of the project before yesterday, took to Twitter to clarify his stance on the matter:

As previously reported, the single-camera comedy would have caught up with Diane Court and Lloyd Dobler 10 years after the film’s events, with Lloyd’s life having gone in an unexpected direction.

Say Anything star John Cusack also tweeted his disapproval of the potential series.

    They can’t make a Say Anything sequel, they died at the end of the movie…

    Thank you Cameron Crowe.

    It really was a bad idea for a TV version of Say Anything. Guess I’ll be listening to Peter Gabriel’s In your Eyes anytime (if I needed a boom box).

    Such an unoriginal premise that they had to get people to watch by vaguely connecting it to a movie. Sad.

    Wow, that was fast. Good.

    If Cameron Crowe isn’t involved, it should be a no go! I hated the premise anyway!
