ABC Greenlights A ‘Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion’ Prequel
ABC has greenlit a two-hour TV movie prequel to the 1997 feature film “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.”
The project, tentatively “Romy and Michele: Behind the Velvet Rope,” takes place in the early 1990s, before the events depicted in the feature, which starred Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow. The TV movie follows the best friends as they head to Hollywood after graduating from high school.
The picture could also serve as a backdoor pilot leading to a series.
Cast and shooting location are to be determined, though a premiere on ABC is likely sometime this coming TV season.
