A TV classic about a musical family is about to be reinvented by NBC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has picked up a remake to the 70s classic series, The Partridge Family.
The project was written by Jeff Rake and will be a modernized take on the series about a family band. Rake had said he intends to turn the premise, "on its head."
"In the original, the kids actually recruited their mom to front the band, which I can't see happening in any family on this planet," he said. "The new version will reflect what seems to me to be the more realistic family band scenario these days: a struggling, sort of well-meaning mom pimping her kids in order to create a wholesome-slash-sexy cash cow."
No production schedule was released for the series.
