'Heathers' To Become Anthology Series on TV Land


From iwatchstuff, Following in the success of FX's Fargo anthology series, TV Land is ready to find out: hey, could we do that with Heathers too? According to THR, the cable network and longtime leader inThree's Company reruns is developing the 1988 cult black comedy as a series that, each season, would feature a new group of "Heathers." Should it go to series, the first season would reportedly have the twist that "this time the outcasts have become high school royalty." One Heather would be a black lesbian, another would be overweight, and the third would be queer, their birth name being "Heath." Way to fuck gender constructs gently with a chainsaw.

I'm currently hooked on TV Land shows "Younger" and "Teachers" so I have a lot of confidence in this TV remake.

I don’t think “queer” is proper shorthand for transgender. Someone slap a wrist!
