HBO Developing THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT Into Potential TV Series

     October 13, 2011

After getting some Oscar nods last year, it sounds like The Kids Are All Right might next be going for some Emmy love as HBO has decided to develop the film co-written and directed by Lisa Cholodenko into an hour-long series. Deadline reports that the filmmaker will write the pilot script that apparently continues the story of the five main characters from the film, a lesbian couple, their teenage son and daughter, and their sperm donor father. It doesn’t sound like Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hutcherson or Mia Wasikowska will reprise their roles for the series, so that kind of takes away some of the charm that really made the film stronger than its overrated screenplay and somewhat sloppy story. Of course, coming from HBO, I’m always expecting good things, so maybe they can pull this off after all.
