NBC is developing a new comedy series based on the 1986 feature The Money Pit, which starred Tom Hanks and Shelley Long. Amblin Television will produce the film. Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment was behind the original, now considered a cult classic.
The plot will stay close to the original, which followed young couple Walter Fielding, Jr. and Anna Crowley Beissart Fielding as they proceed to buy a distress-sale mansion that quickly falls apart and destroys their relationship.
