A brand new challenge is in growth from producers Selena Gomez, Tanya Saracho and Gabriela Revilla Lugo. The trio are teaming as much as create a comedy sequence spin on John Hughes’ traditional 1984 coming-of-age movie Sixteen Candles.
The half-hour sequence can be titled 15 Candles, and it’ll observe “4 younger Latinas in highschool, navigating emotions of invisibility whereas exploring what it means to go away childhood behind as quinceañera season approaches.”
Saracho, below her Ojalá Manufacturing banner, and Lugo write and government produce 15 Candles, whereas Gomez additionally government produces below her July Moon Productions.
This sounds prefer it simply has the identify in widespread with the unique, so I don’t assume it actually wants any affiliation with the movie. It appears like a stable story that’s adequate to face by itself. I like teen comedies, so I’ll add it to my watch record. 15 Candles is ready at Peacock.
