Just as the Capulets waged war with the Montagues (over… you know… that reason) in Romeo & Juliet, it seems the broadcast networks are also finding themselves at odds over the Shakespearean classic.
Fox is cooking up a modern-day version of the star-crossed story, one which takes place in the world of Los Angeles’ music and radio industry, our sister site Deadline reports. (So, Empire meets… Empire?) The project, yet to be titled, is being written/executive-produced by Eduardo Cisneros and Jason Shuman.
Meanwhile, ABC is still developing its Romeo & Juliet sequel — yes, sequel — series Still Star-Crossed, based on Melinda Taub’s 2013 novel.
Can you see yourself making room on your DVR for either of these shows? And, more importantly, when did Romeo & Juliet become the new
vampires zombies? Drop a comment with all of your thoughts below.
