MOVIES Jane austen

It's been over two centuries since Jane Austen died, yet her stories—just six novels—are still being told and reworked to this day, extending her unparalleled legacy in literature to film and television. 

One of her most famous adaptations, 'Clueless,' was recently announced to be in development at Peacock for another TV adaptation, but with a twist: this time it won't follow Cher Horowitz, but rather her best friend Dionne Davenport, formerly played by Stacey Dash. Writers Jordan Reddout and Gus Hickey ('Will & Grace') will bring the 1995 Austen adaptation to the high school of 2020, oat milk lattés and Adderall included, with some added mystery involved regarding Cher's disappearance.
