Many Krofft Projects Underway
The WB’s upcoming revival of Sid and Marty Krofft’s 1970s television show Electra Woman and Dyna Girl is only one of several Krofft projects under development, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Markie Post and Anne Stedman will star in the pilot for Electra, which was developed by writers Jeff Kline and Elisa Bell, the trade paper reported.
Meanwhile, Nickelodeon and Paramount are in talks to revive a feature-film version of the 1969 TV show H.R. Pufnstuf, which was on hold at Sony. Mike Mitchell would direct, from a script by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer.
A list of other projects follows, as reported by the trade paper.
- The Bugaloos, a movie based on the 1970-’72 Saturday morning series. Kerry Brown and Russell Scott are writing the screenplay.
- Land of the Lost, a movie based on the mid-’70s live-action and puppet television series about a family transported to a parallel universe, where dinosaurs never became extinct.
- A Rat’s Tail, a film retelling the Cinderella story from the point of view of the rat who becomes a coachman. Dan Rosen is writing the script.
- Black Alice in Underland, a fairy tale anthology that will be produced as a television movie or series pilot.
