Ben Stiller Turning His 'Reality Bites' Into TV Show


The 'Zoolander' actor is set to executive produce a small-screen adaptation of the 1994 film with original screenwriter Helen Childress penning the pilot script.

Ben Stiller is developing a TV show based on his 1994 movie "Reality Bites" for NBC. The 47-year-old actor/director teams up with the film's scribe Helen Childress for a TV series version of the drama-comedy movie.

Stiller is on board as executive producer, while Childress will pen the pilot script. The story is set in early 1990s and follows recent college graduate Lelaina Pierce as she struggles to make her way romantically and professionally in the recession-plagued, pre-Internet era in Houston. Her "slacker" friends with whom she shares an apartment will also be key characters.

"Reality Bites" movie marks Stiller's directorial debut. In addition to taking behind-the-lens role, the Larry Daley of "Night at the Museum" starred in the film along with Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke.

No cast member for the TV project is announced as of now. The original stars likely won't reprise their roles for the half-hour comedy series.
