Bravo's Bringing Back 'Death Becomes Her' As A TV Series

According to Variety, the network and Robert Zemeckis are working on a one-hour drama adaptation of the film starring Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn. Zemeckis, who directed the film, is on board to executive produce alongside Jack Rapke and Jackie Levine. No writer has been tapped to pen the show about two rival women who attempt to seek immortality.

"Death Becomes Her" is just the latest film Bravo is attempting to turn into a TV show. The network recently ordered "The Joneses" to pilot. The series is based on the movie of the same name -- starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny -- about a fake family who moves from community to community to sell products.

"These pilots give us an opportunity to explore worlds and characters that are distinct from our unscripted programming," Andrew Wang, vice president of scripted development and production at Bravo, said in a statement. "Yet, both projects feature the memorable storylines and strong, unique characters that our Bravo audience craves.”

A sequel series to "Heathers" is also in the works at Bravo. The show would pick up 20 years after the events of "Heathers" and takes place in present day with Veronica moving back to Sherwood with her teen daughter who has to deal with the "Ashleys," the daughters of the surviving Heathers.

No casting has been announced for "Death Becomes Her," "The Jonses" or "Heathers."
