The movie 10 Things I Hate About You is being turned into a TV show. ABC has picked up the half-hour pilot based on the film of the same name that starred Julia Stiles. It’s been written and exec produced by Carter Covington and revolves around two sisters -- a strong-willed feminist and a social butterfly -- facing the challenges of starting out in a new high school.
Ruby And The Rockits is also coming to the network, which is a comedy about a former teen idol whose quiet life is disrupted when his brother and former bandmate shows up with a newfound teenage daughter.
The ABC's executive vice president, original series programming & development, Kate Juergens, stated, "We're excited about these pilots and feel they're perfect additions to our existing slate of programs." She added, "These shows are headed by talented teams who clearly possess authentic voices which we believe will resonate with our millennial viewers."
