This is still going ahead, produced by Gossip Girl and The OC‘s Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s production company Fake Empire.

iZombie co-creator Diane Ruggiero-Wright wrote the pilot and will serve as showrunner, while Victoria Mahoney (Grey’s Anatomy) is directing it.



The cast for the pilot; Ashleigh LaThrop (Sirens) as Alicia, Tre Hall (Rebel) as Curtis, Allie MacDonald (Orphan Black) as Kelly and Jake Cannavale (Nurse Jackie) as Nathan.

Here are some character descriptions, which sound as though they slightly differ from those of the original series, as told by Deadline:
Alicia: “a spoiled, vapid, middle-class party girl who seems to have three main goals in life: have fun, look hot and get guys.”

Curtis: “a talented and cocky football player with a promising career ahead of him who is used to everything going his way.”

Kelly: “tough and trashy… street smart with a hair-trigger temper and a penchant for beating the crap out of people.”

Nathan: “a con artist and thief with a heavily inflated sense of his own attractiveness, intelligence and potential.”

Now to cast Simon…

‘Misfits’ Reboot: Dave Foley & Charlie Saxton Cast In Freeform Pilot
Foley will play Bernie, a disheveled driver (think Uber), he’s clumsy, dorky and wearing clothes from 1990. Everything about this guy screams “desperate.” Saxton will play Simon. Intelligent and odd, Simon makes his way through life ignored by the world at large. Alternately tormented and shunned by his roommates, Simon has just as much trouble connecting with the other misfits he meets at community service
