HOW VERY…“HEATHERS” PILOT GREENLIT AT TV LAND WITH LESLYE HEADLAND DIRECTING

Los Angeles, CA – September 6, 2016 – After  announcing a script deal in March, TV Land has greenlit the pilot for "Heathers," based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name. Leslye Headland ("Sleeping with Other People," "Bachelorette") will direct the pitch-black comedy. Reimagined as an anthology, "Heathers" will be set in the present day, as our heroine deals with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. The script is written by Jason Micallef ("Butter"), and Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will executive produce for Lakeshore Entertainment. 

                                                                                              

Headland is repped by UTA and Anonymous Content. The "Heathers" pilot is expected to shoot later this fall.
