NETFLIX CASTS ALICIA SILVERSTONE AND MARK FEUERSTEIN IN THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB LIVE-ACTION SERIES ADAPTATION
If you remember the series The Baby-Sitters Club from your childhood, its a fond memory of friends getting together going on great adventures and solving complex problems in a time of innocence. In reality it was a pillar for girls that showcased enterpreneurialism and female empowerment. The four book series is being adapted and cast Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, American Woman) and Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) to the upcoming live-action series The Baby-Sitters Club. Silverstone will play Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer, the mother of Kristy Thomas and love interest of Watson Brewer, played by Feuerstein.
The Baby-Sitters Club is a contemporary original series that will follow the friendship and babysitting adventures of five best friends -Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, and Dawn Schafer – in Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
The family-friendly adaptation comes from Walden Media and Michael De Luca, who will executive produce. Rachel Shukert (GLOW) will serve as showrunner, Lucy Kitada and Naia Cucukov will serve as executive producers and Lucia Aniello (Broad City) will serve as director and executive producer. The series author Ann M. Martin will also produce alongside Aniello’s Paulilu Productions. There is a 10-episode order.
Netflix is bringing up more throwbacks to childhood memories. I can only hope that this production will do justice to the story. Stay tuned for more!
