TV Land Orders ‘Heathers’ to Series

Ten One-Hour Episodes Ordered

TV Land has picked up its first ever hour-long series, “Heathers,” with a 10-episode order and a planned launch in fall 2017. Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, “Heathers” is described as a pitch-black comedy anthology set in the present day, as our heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, “Under the Dome”) deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. Also starring are James Scully as JD, Melanie Field (“Wicked” National Tour) as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell (“Funny or Die”) as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. Original cast member Shannen Doherty will make a guest appearance.

Jason Micallef (“Butter”), who wrote the pilot script, will serve as executive producer and showrunner, and Leslye Headland (“Sleeping with Other People,” “Bachelorette”) directed and was an executive producer on the pilot. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment. Brad Gardner will executive produce for TV Land.
