Heathers Pilot Ordered at TV Land

What’s the up-chuck factor on this: TV Land is moving forward with plans to turn Heathers into a TV series.

The cabler on Tuesday announced that it has formally greenlit a pilot for a half-hour, single camera series based on the 1988 cult classic, which starred Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. TV Land says it will “reimagine” Heathers as a present-day anthology series, with each season focusing on a different heroine and a new set of mean girls.

Terriers scribe Leslye Headland is on board to direct the pilot, which begins shooting later this fall.

THR.com first reported the news.
