We just got news that the E! cable network is developing a TV series based on the 1999 mean girl comedy Jawbreaker. If you missed it, Jawbreaker tells the story of the “Flawless Four”, the four most beautiful and popular girls in Reagan High School, and what happens when their queen bee chokes to death on a jawbreaker. The film was based on the 1988 black comedy Heathers, stars indie star actress Heather McGowan and has gained a cult following for its Mean Girls-style humor.
You can see a trailer for the 1999 film below.
If it goes into full production mode, Darren Stein, Jawbreaker‘s original director, will write and executive produce the series alongside George Northy; both of them helped create MTV’s fauxmosexual high school dramedy series Faking It as well as G.B.F., a 2013 comedy about a newly outed boy who becomes the gay best friend of three popular girls.
Anyway, we’re so excited that we had to celebrate with some GIFs from the original film.
