Cue “Bittersweet Symphony” – Cruel Intentions may be making a comeback on the small screen.
NBC has purchased a script with a commitment from the film’s original director and writer, Roger Kumble, according to Variety.
Set in present day, Bash finds his father’s journal and learns of the late Sebastian Valmont’s former fortune. Hoping to find answers about his family history, he leaves Kansas for the world of private schools in San Francisco, Deadline reports.
Kumble will reportedly direct the show’s pilot and co-write the series with Lindsey Rosin and Jordon Ross, who will also serve as executive producers.
The duo was behind the parody Cruel Intentions: The Completely Unauthorized Musical, which opened in Los Angeles earlier this year.
