It's been announced that ABC has picked up the rights to make the Heath Ledger introduction to American audiences movie, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU, into a television series. The plan is that a half hour pilot will be shooting soon for potential airing on ABC Family Channel. Someone please shoot me in the face.
The film's director, Gil Junger, has agreed to make the pilot and says that the show will lean toward the lives of the two sisters in the movie, played by Julia Stiles and Larisa Oleynik in the original flick.
Can anyone say "cashing in on Ledger's legend"? Jesus. I don't even know where to begin with this.
