Fox is developing a female-led series adaptation of Russell Crowe-Ryan Gosling film THE NICE GUYS, Tracking Board has confirmed.
THE NICE GIRLS is written and executive produced by Michael Diliberti, with Joel Silver, a producer on the original buddy cop film, also on board as an EP.
Silver is also producing Fox’s series adaptation of Lethal Weapon, now in its second season, starring Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans as LAPD sergeants Riggs and Murtaugh.
Additionally, Fox is also developing a reboot of True Lies, which would mark three similar hour-long action comedy projects for the network.
The model of rebooting action comedies for TV is certainly thriving at the moment, with The Nice Girls the latest in-development project, joining Starsky and Hutch at Sony and Amazon and Miami Vice at NBC. ABC is also developing a female-led reboot of Greatest American Hero, but as a half-hour comedy.
