NBC isn't moving forward with 'Say Anything' series

Cameron Crowe is getting his way: After tweeting that he was “trying to stop” NBC from developing a TV series based on his 1989 film Say Anything, NBC has decided not to move forward with the show.

The show, which NBC announced Monday, was set to be a half-hour comedy that picked up 10 years after the original Say Anything left off. At that point in the Say Anything world, Lloyd Dobler and Diane Court would be finding their way back to each other after breaking up after their brief post-graduation romance.

Just hours after the announcement, Crowe made clear that he didn’t support the project when he tweeted that he and Say Anything stars John Cusack and Ione Skye have nothing to do with the series “except in trying to stop it.”
