Cruel Intentions - Sequel Series Ordered to Pilot by NBC



The drama, from the man who created L.A.'s musical parody, follows the son of Sebastian and Annette. Here come the remakes.

Following a slew of family fare and procedural pilot orders, the broadcast networks have now turned their attention to the remakes with NBC handing out a pilot pickup to a Cruel Intentions TV follow-up.

NBC's Cruel Intentions picks up more than 15 years after the 1999 movie left off. The drama follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey, the son of her brother, who was the late Sebastian Valmont and Annette Hargrove. Upon discovering his late father’s legacy in a hidden journal, Bash is introduced to a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined.

The small-screen sequel, which landed at NBC with a penalty attached in October, hails from Cruel Intentions writer-director Roger Kumble and producer Neal H. Moritz. They are joined by Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross, the duo behind the recent musical parody staged in Los Angeles. The pair's send-up at L.A.'s Rockwell in May attracted the film's four central stars, including Selma Blair, Reese Witherspoon, Ryan Phillippe and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Kumble has remained in touch with Ross and Rosin after blessing the musical parody.

Kumble, Ross and Rosin will pen the script and exec produce the Sony Pictures Television drama, with the former also attached to direct the pilot. The potential series hails from SPT-based Neil Moritz and his Original Film banner. Moritz and Pavun Shetty will also exec produce. The movie, produced by SPT sibling Columbia Pictures, grossed $75 million on a $10.5 million budget.
