#NBC Still Interested in #CruelIntentions
Cruel Intentions is not done yet!
According to TVLine, that sources say that NBC has extended its contractual options on the Sarah Michelle Gellar and cast members though December. It's a clear indication that the network is still interested in the project.
Ever since the news about turning the hit film into a series, it's been the most buzzed show talked about. The remake had failed to get a series order in May but NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told reporters at the time that the project remains in consideration.
"It goes under the heading of embarrassment of riches," he said. "There's just so many shows that we have (already) scheduled or ordered."
Greenblatt also conceded that Cruel Intentions is "a bit of an outlier for us, because there's no other show like it in our list of genres. But we like it and we're still discussing it and trying to figure it out."
Sources has also told TVLIne that NBC is mulling a possible Summer 2017 premiere, which if a move like that would likely require some budget tweaking.
