‘The Goonies’ inspired TV series Coming To Disney+
Don’t you just love Disney+? They’ve given the green light to develop a TV series inspired by The Goonies!
The series (originally called Untitled Film Re-Enactment Project), Our Time, follows a teacher who helps her students re-create the ’85 comedy in its entirety.
Interesting idea. What a cool teacher.
Warner Bros. TV executive VP Clancy Collins White, said, “Sarah worked nonstop to deliver this incredible script, we had our table read, and then the world shut down for COVID. So we came back many months later and finished the beautiful pilot, and it was an incredible cast, but unfortunately a little bit too young for Fox. And so we immediately swung into high gear and hit the town with it.”
White added, “We did not yet have anything in development at Disney+. It’s been another example of being able to carve a pathway where there wasn’t one by virtue of a great story, a great pilot, a great series. The deal has taken a while to make, but we’re really excited to be moving forward.”
Our Time is being produced by The Donner Company (the same company as the original) and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners.
No word on a release date.
Personally, I love the idea. Which other movies deserve to be made into a series?
