Series based on Jawbreaker in development


Hot on the heels of the new “Heathers” series, E! has put into development a TV series based on the cult classic comedy “Jawbreaker”.

The hourlong scripted series, from Sony TV, will be helmed by the film’s writer-director Darren Stein and George Northy who will co-write and executive produce.

The adaptation follows a new clique whose world is rocked by an accidental killing at a bachelorette party. The incident sets in motion an audacious, juicy soap in which the women will go to great lengths to keep their secret hidden. Should the project move forward, E!’s sister studio Universal Cable Productions likely would come aboard to co-produce with Sony.

The 1999 film starred Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart, Julie Benz and Judy Greer.
