The Baby-Sitters Club is in the process of making its way back to the small screen as Walden Media and Michael De Luca Productions are packaging a TV adaptation for the 2018 marketplace, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The modernized version of the series is being shopped as half-hour episodes.

Based on book series by creator Ann M. Martin, The Baby-Sitters Club is about a group of friends who live in the fictional town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut. The young group of girls run a local babysitting service called the “Baby-Sitters Club.” The books allowed the characters to confront a variety of common problems such as illness, jealousy, sibling rivalry, peer conflicts, and family issues.

The series was published by Scholastic between 1986 and 2000 and has sold about 180 million copies to date. The novels have been adapted before, first with a TV series that aired on HBO in the early 1990’s, and then with the 1995 feature of the same name starring Rachel Leigh Cook, Larisa Oleynik, and Schuyler Fisk. Each character Martin penned for the books are expected to appear in the adaptation.

Lucia Aniello (Broad City) and Rachel Shukert (Glow) are in talks to direct and showrun. De Luca will executive producer, with Walden’s Naia Cucukov and De Luca’s Lucy Kitada overseeing production. Episodes of the series will touch on timely topics, including divorce, racism, and belonging. The show is being billed as a family-friendly series, designed to appeal to kids, teen, and adults.

“As lifelong fans of The Baby-Sitters Club and its enduring messages of entrepreneurialism, empowerment, diversity and most importantly, female friendships, we couldn’t be more thrilled to work on this special project with Rachel and Lucia. We feel incredibly honored that Ann M. Martin has allowed us the chance to introduce the BSC to a new generation of future thought leaders and influencers,” said Cucukov, Walden Media’s senior VP of development and production.
