TVLine Items: Party of Five Reboot With Twist, Big Brother Duo to Race and More

Party of Five Reboot

Salinger’s might be opening back up for business.

Party of Five creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman are developing a reboot of the ’90s Fox drama, but there’s a twist:The project is centered around a first-generation Latino family who have immigrated to the U.S., per The Hollywood Reporter.

While the original series, which ran from 1994-2000, was about the Salinger siblings’ struggles after their parents’ deaths in a car crash, the new Party of Five would chronicle a Latino clan’s highs and lows as they learn to make it in a new country. (No word on whether Mom and Dad survived or not this time around.)

The reboot is in the very early stages — producers Sony Pictures Television Studios haven’t even heard a pitch yet — and no network is attached.
