‘Clueless’ TV Reboot in Development at Peacock

Untitled Proposed Series to Focus on the Dionne Character

A second TV series based on 1995 theatrical “Clueless,” this time focused on the Dionne character, Cher Horowitz’s lifelong friend, is in development at streamer Peacock. Set in the present day, the proposed untitled series from CBS Television Studios and writers Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey (“Will & Grace,” “Man With a Plan”), is described a baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sun-glasses wearing, oat milk latte and Adderall-fueled look at what happens when queen bee Cher disappears and her lifelong number two Dionne steps into Cher’s vacant Air Jordans. The logline: How does Dionne deal with the pressures of being the new most popular girl in school, while also unraveling the mystery of what happened to her best friend?

The first spinoff TV series from “Clueless,” using that same title, began on ABC in 1996 and ended on defunct network UPN in 1999.
