    Freeform Orders A “Misfits” Remake

    freeform-orders-a-misfits-remake-696x464.jpg
    Freeform has given a pilot order for a U.S. series remake of the British cult fave superhero drama “Misfits” with Diane Ruggiero-Wright (“iZombie,” “Veronica Mars”) to serve as showrunner.

    The project centers on a group of young offenders in a community-service program who develop supernatural powers after being hit by a mysterious electrical storm.

    Ashleigh Lathrop, Tre Hall, Jake Cannavale and Allie MacDonald star in the remake which Howard Overman, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will executive produce.

    There is no way this is going to work.

    They'll 'Hollywood-ize' it in all the wrong ways, as per usual.

    I can see the pitch meeting.

    "You remember when we remade that British show Skins?"

    "Yeah, it failed miserably."

    "But what about when we remade The Inbetweeners?"

    "Wasn't that also a failure?"

    "So third times the charm, amirite?"

    "Why did I let your mother talk me into hiring you?"

    "Because I was flunked out of seven different universities, and you didn't want me living in your basement, dad."

    "*sigh* When do we start?"
