Say Anything Review

Twenty-five years after the John Cusack held a bulky boom box over his head and blasted Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes,’ Say Anything is returning in the form of a comedy series.

NBC has given a script commitment plus penalty to the half-hour, single-camera series from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV, EW has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.

The series picks up 10 years after Cameron Crowe’s 1989 original, which followed Cusack’s Lloyd Dobler and his whirlwind romance with valedictorian Diane Court (Ion Skye) during the summer after their high-graduation. According to the official synopsis:  “Lloyd Dobler has long since been dumped by Diane Court and life hasn’t exactly turned out like he thought. But when Diane surprisingly returns home, Lloyd is inspired to ‘dare to be great’ once again, get Diane back and reboot his life.”

Justin Adler (Better Off Ted), who  is writing the project, will executive produce along with Kaplan.
