There’s remakes, reboots and reiterations of our favorite franchises in film. But this one off classic is getting a reboot on the little screen, as a series. Stay Tuned, the 1992 dark comedy/fantasy film starring John Ritter & Pam Dawber, is being developed as a series by AMC.
The quick run down about the film goes like this. Roy Knable (Ritter) and his wife Helen Knable (Dawber) get sucked inside of the TV and they have to run through the TV universe’s twisted bizarre channels, while trying to survive and find a way out.
Why am I excited about this reboot? Well first, I’m excited because AMC is doing it. Fear The Walking Dead co-showrunner/executive producer Ian Goldberg & writer/producer Richard Naing, are writing the series.
Second, there’s so many ideas you can put into this series. Take something like Sliders, the multi-dimensional universes they slid to using a modified tv remote. Now, picture that same device, turned into a dark comedy with the idea of all your tv shows or movies you like, gets twisted into an evil bizarre fantasy world. One where there is never a happy ending.
No real information is available on when production starts. With that said, you can feed your funny bones by watching the original film. That will have you in a helluva good mood.
