Soon we’ll all be saying, “what’s your damage?”
TVLand is eyeing plans to adapt the 1988 black comedy, Heathers. The original starred Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty, and Christian Slater.
Though the movie focused on teenage suicide, bullying and being in with the ‘in’ crowd, the show zero in on how”our heroine deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers,” stated the network’s announcement on the series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Heather McNamara (played by Lisanne Falk in the movie) is now a black lesbian, Heather Duke (Doherty) is a male identifying as gender-queer and Heather Chandler (Kim Walker ) “has a body like Martha Dumptruck.”
