Variety reports that the network is developing a "Cruel Intentions" series with original writer and director Roger Kumble. The show would be a sequel — when Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon) drove off in the car owned by her dead lover, Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe), apparently she was pregnant. The show would focus on their 16-year-old son named Bash. He discovers his father's journal and learns about his parents' dark past. Looking for more answers, he goes to a prestigious school in San Francisco, where he "finds himself in a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined."
The script was written by Lindsey Rosin and Jordan Ross, who were behind this summer's "Cruel Intentions" musical in L.A. The show got a lot of notice when the original movie's stars — Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Selma Blair — reunited to attend.
