......'Flashdance'.......on CBS All Access which will rebrand as Paramount+ in 2021......in development....


Flashdance Series in the Works at CBS All Access

.....CBS All Access hopes to put another maniac on the floor.

The streaming service is developing a series adaptation of Flashdance, the 1983 film that launched Jennifer Beals’ career.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reboot will follow a young Black woman “with ballet dreams and a strip club reality” who is trying to find her place in the world “while navigating romance, money, art, friendship and how to love herself.” (In the original film, Beals’ character was a welder at a steel mill who dreamed of becoming a professional dancer.)

Lynda Obst, who served as an associate producer on the original Flashdance, is attached to exec-produce the potential series. Angela Robinson (The L Word, True Blood) is also on board as an EP and will direct the pilot, while Tracy McMillan (Good Girls Revolt) will write the script.

As previously reported, CBS All Access will rebrand as Paramount+ in early 2021, as part of a relaunch of the streaming service that will combine original content with shows from CBS and cable outlets MTV, Comedy Central, BET, Paramount Network and Nickelodeon. (Paramount Pictures was also Flashdance‘s original distributor.)

Pathetic.

Hollywood is OFFICIALLY devoid of a single new idea.



It is what it is.

They aren't programming for you, they're programming for the 12-16 year olds who've never heard of, much less seen any originals. They (producers & programmers) have all been brought up on the story of the the college kid with no entertainment background who bought rights to Casper the Ghost for three box-tops and some old Green Stamps.
