Sisterland Heading to ABC

30 September 2013 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The popular novel Sisterland is heading to TV, Deadline reports. Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage's production company is behind the series, and Mistresses' Rina Mimoun will adapt the book for the pilot, which has landed at ABC. The story centers on identical twin sisters who have psychic powers — powers that one of them embraces and publicizes, and that one tries to hide. Mimoun has a vastly underappreciated sisterhood show under her belt already: 2008's short-lived CW show Privileged, which is still the best role Joanna Garcia's ever had. »

28 August 2013 3:31 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

It's hard to believe "Newsies" has been around since 1992. Directed by choreographer Kenny Ortega (who you can also thank for the the "High School Musical" series), the film was a major box office flop, but later gained a cult following on home video. Now, it's been turned into a Broadway musical that has earned eight Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, winning Best Choreography and Best Original Score.

For those of you who have been waking up every day for the past 21 years with "Seize The Day" stuck in your head, this is for you. Scroll down to see where the cast of the beloved Disney movie is today.
