Ben Stiller Is Making Reality Bites Into an NBC Sitcom

Ben Stiller is working to turn Reality Bites, the 1994 cult comedy that he directed, into a sitcom on NBC. Stiller and the film's writer, Helen Childless, have partnered to produce the show, which will focus on recent college grad Lelaina Pierce, played by Winona Ryder in the film.

From Entertainment Weekly:

Much like the original, the series will reportedly take place in the early ’90s and center on novice filmmaker Pierce and her slacker friends in Houston after their college graduation. While no casting was announced, it’s safe to say Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Ben Stiller, and the rest of the original cast, which also included Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn, will probably not be reprising their roles.
