NBC is digging in for '90s nostalgia. Variety reports that the network is developing Reality Bites as a half-hour comedy series, based on the Ben Stiller-directed 1994 film. Stiller is executive producing the film with Helen Childress writing the pilot script.
The series will be a single-camera series (aka along the lines of The Office or Modern Family) and is being produced by Universal TV. It will reportedly be closely based on the movie and thus centered on Lelaina Pierce, a recent college graduate trying to make her way in life during the pre-Internet days of the 1990s with her slacker friends.
The original film starred Winona Ryder, Stiller, Ethan Hawke and Janeane Garofalo.
