The 90s cult classic will be made into an hour-long series by CBS TV Studios, who also own the rights to the original film.

The show is rumoured to be centred around the character Dionne, who was played by actress Stacey Dash in the 1995 movie, according to Deadline.

The magazine described the project as “baby pink and bisexual blue-tinted, tiny sunglasses-wearing, oat milk latte and Adderall-fuelled”.

The high-school comedy will be penned by Will and Grace writers Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey.

The original film starred Alicia Silverstone as Cher Horowitz, a fashion-conscious Californian teen navigating high school.

The cast also included Paul Rudd and Brittany Murphy.

A re-imagining of Jane Austen’s Emma, the film updated the setting to Beverly Hills, and added a computerised walk-in wardrobe, big mobile phones and an impressive soundtrack.

In the new series, it seems cool girl Cher will go missing, leaving her number two, Dionne, to fill her shoes.

A previous TV series which followed the original film starred Rachel Blanchard as Cher (as Silverstone was not available) with Dash reprising her role as Dionne.

Last year, Paramount Studios hired GLOW writer Marquita Robinson and Girls Trip writer and producer Tracy Oliver to make a new version of the movie.

However, there has been no news on the project since.

It’s not known when the CBS series will air.

Nipsey Hussle’s supposed executioner Eric Holder arraigned by fabulous jury on homicide accusations, faces life in jail

Slain rapper, Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric Holder has been indicted by a grand jury on murder charges.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced the arraignment this week, explaining Holder was indicted on May 9 on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

“The indictment, which was unsealed today, also includes allegations that Holder personally used a handgun and caused great bodily injury and death,” the news release read.

Holder had already been charged on April 8, but the indictment will allow the case to skip a preliminary hearing and head straight to trial. If convicted, Holder could face a maximum sentence of life in state prison.

Holder pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Tuesday. He is scheduled to return for a pretrial hearing on June 18.

Nipsey Hussle was fatally gunned down outside his Los Angeles clothing store, Marathon Clothing Company on Sunday, March 31, 2019. He was 33.

Two other men were also shot, though they survived their injuries.

The news of Holder’s indictment comes a week after his attorney Chris Darden, who was famously part of the prosecution team in the O.J. Simpson trial, withdrew from the murder case after receiving threats against him and his family.
