TV Reboot Of ’80s Comedy ‘Real Genius’ In The Works
  |  @   |  

Since everyone loves them so very much, yet another reboot is in the works.

The 1985 Val Kilmer movie Real Genius is being rebooted as a TV comedy for NBC by Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Sony TV (Sony being the parent company of TriStar Pictures, who released the original movie).

Unlike the movie, which was set at Pacific Tech technical university, the TV show will instead be a workplace comedy that focuses on a pair of co-workers with very different personalities.

The script was written by Reaper, Ugly Americans, Chuck, and Workaholics writer and producer Craig DiGregorio, and David King, who’s penned episodes of Workaholics, The League, and Parks and Recreation.
