Fame Reboot Picked Up at Lifetime From Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe

Head up to the attic and pull your leg warmers out of storage, because Fame is coming back to TV.

Lifetime has picked up a reboot of the ’80s series — which has been in the works since 2012 — with So You Think You Can Dance‘s Nigel Lythgoe attached to executive-produce.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the revival — much like the original 1980 film and follow-up NBC series — will revolve around a group of adults struggling to balance the pressures of life at a performing arts college with their personal lives.

Josh Safran (Smash, Gossip Girl) will write the script and executive-produce alongside Lythgoe, Chad Gutstein and Charles Segars. MGM Television will produce in conjunction with A+E Studios.

Fame originally ran from 1982 to 1987 and starred Debbie Allen and Carlo Imperato. Most recently, an updated version of the film was released in 2009, starring Kelsey Grammer and Bebe Neuwirth.
