Marlene King is said to be in early stages of developing a TV project based on the 1995 drama film, which she wrote, for ABC Family.
After creating the popular TV series "Pretty Little Liars", Marlene King may bring another show to ABC Family. It has been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that the writer is developing a new project based on 1995's movie "Now and Then" for the network.
Details of the upcoming TV series are very scarce, but it is reported to be in early stages of development. King also penned the script for the film, which starred Demi Moore, Christina Ricci, Rosie O'Donnell and Melanie Griffith among others.
The story itself follows four girl pals with their own problems during the summer in 1970. It has been dubbed a female version of 1986's film "Stand by Me".
The "Now and Then" small screen adaptation aside, King is still serving as a showrunner for "Pretty Little Liars" which is currently airing its third season.
