Why, this is more exciting than that time you won “Best Digestion” at the pie-eating contest! TV Land has ordered a pilot for a First Wives Club reboot written by New Girl’s Rebecca Addelman. Sex and The City’s Jenny Bicks will executive produce. The show will relocate the 1996 movie’s trio of amazing soon-to-be divorcées to San Francisco; they will be “three friends and former classmates from the 1990s who reconnect after their close friend from college dies in a freak accident.” Production will start as soon as Wardrobe can find a sufficient number of cream-colored pantsuits with room to really move.
