Tootie, Natalie, Blair and Jo Reunite

The girls of Eastland are going home. “The Facts of Life” is headed to the small screen for a reunion in which Natalie, played by Mindy Cohn, will ask her former classmates to gather in Peekskill, N.Y., after she receives two marriage proposals. Joining Cohn will be Charlotte Rae, Kim Fields and Lisa Whelchel, Variety reports. Production is slated to begin next month in Toronto. It’s unknown whether Nancy McKeon will appear in a cameo. “The Facts of Life” starred Rae as an East Coast boarding school housemother and Cohn, Fields, Whelchel and McKeon as the students she looked after. The sitcom aired on NBC from 1979-88. The TV movie will air on ABC. George Clooney also appeared on the show from 1985-1986. The filmmakers have not yet approached him to see if he will participate.
