It appears that Hulu is attempting to step their game up with original content. The streaming service recently abandoned their free subscription model, and is forging ahead with some reasons for subscribers to actually pay for their service. Per Deadline:
A cult movie title, the 1974 Foxy Brown, is headed to television a with a TV series adaptation starring Meagan Good in the iconic role. In a competitive situation, the project, executive produced by DeVon Franklin and Tony Krantz, has landed at Hulu for development. MGM TV is the studio.
Empire co-executive producer Malcolm Spellman and Hand of God creator Ben Watkins will write the TV version, a modern reimagining of the 1974 movie and the larger-than-life Foxy Brown character, originally played by Pam Grier in what is still recognized the ultimate portrayal of a strong and powerful African-American woman.
Taking on the Foxy role has been a passion for Good. She also will serve as a producer on the series, executive produced by her husband, producer Franklin via his Franklin Entertainment, Krantz through his Flame Ventures, showrunners Spellman and Watkins as well as Good’s managers at Untitled Entertainment, Jason Weinberg & Evan Hainey. Drew Comins of Flame will serve as co-executive producer.
The 1974 movie, written and directed by Jack Hill, followed Foxy Brown (Grier) as she sought revenge for the murder of her boyfriend by a drug syndicate
Hopefully, this will last longer than FOX’s ill conceived Minority Report adaptation, in which Good starred. Solid cast, horrible execution.
