If only your Tamagotchi were alive to see this.
The '90s are back in a big way, and you don't have to take our word for it. The Backstreet Boys and No Doubt will be among the first to attest that everything old is new again. And that goes for our favorite movies too.
Variety reports that "Pretty Little Liars" executive producer I. Marlene King is in the early stages of developing her 1995 coming-of-age film "Now and Then" into a TV series for ABC Family.
If you weren't exactly cognizant way back then, let me tell you about this seminal film. "Now and Then" tells the story of a group of four friends—played as adults by Rosie O'Donnell, Melanie Griffith, Demi Moore and Rita Wilson and as teens by Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, Gaby Hoffmann and Ashleigh Aston Moore—who reunite and recall the fateful summer they shared in the early '70s. And in signature Marlene fashion, there's plenty of humor, intrigue and romance. (Call me, Devon Sawa!)
To say this film significantly influenced my 13-year-old self (and made me feel funny, weird things) would not be an overstatement. I mean, there were skinny-dipping boys! (Clearly with a PG-13 rating we didn't see anything, but just the idea! Whoa!) Many, many years later, I had the opportunity to talk with Marlene on the phone, and despite my wearing my Professional Journalist Panties, I couldn't help but gush about how much that movie meant to me. To her credit, Marlene kindly humored my praise and thanked me.
Now, I have no idea what this TV series will look like (or if it will even make it out of development hell alive), but I do know I'll be tuning in if for no other reason than to revisit a tiny slice of my increasingly forgotten teen years. But this time, I'll leave my scrunchie tucked inside my vanity.
