The First Wives Club is officially getting a modern reboot on the small screen.
Like the film, the series will take place in New York City, and will follow “a group of women who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood — and of course a little revenge,” Paramount explained.
The TV reimagining has been placed in the capable hands of Tracy Oliver, who recently co-wrote the box office smash hit Girl Trip, which earned her the distinction of becoming the first African-American woman to write a movie that grossed over $100 million domestically.
Celebrating the announcement, Oliver wrote on Twitter, “My mom, sis and I [love]’ed the hell out of this growing up! Dumb excited to be adapting for TV with a diverse cast.”

The original The First Wives Club was a surprise hit at the box office, eventually raking in $181,490,000 worldwide, and revitalizing the careers of its three lead actresses.
