Fans of late 1980s/early 1990s cinema classics License to Drive, Dream a Little Dream, and unforgettable the-hot-one-from-Charles-in-Charge-getting-naked masterwork Blown Away will suffer an aneurysm of delight from today's news that the producers of non-exploitative reality fare like Wife Swap have reunited Former Teen Heartthrobs Corey Feldman and Corey Haim for a Curb Your Enthusiasm-style series. Reports Variety:
"The Coreys" picks up with Feldman living the comfortable suburban life with his wife Suzie and son, until circumstances bring his old pal Haim back into the picture. Episodes would follow Haim — single and the total opposite of Feldman — as he shakes life up for the Feldmans.
RDF USA exec VP of current/development Greg Goldman said because Feldman and Haim have been friends on and off screen for several years, the chemistry between the two " just pops off the screen."
It just occurred to us that an entire generation of TV viewers might not even know who "the Coreys" are or what they represented to their twenty- and thirty-something elders. For the confused kids who want in on the action: Think the Olsen twins, but with worse drug problems, no international conglomerate, and not conjoined. Now you're ready to plop down on the couch next to your older aunts and uncles and appreciate the Coreys' wacky, semi-provisoational adventures together without a crippling, intergenerational pop-culture gap getting in the way.
