Fox Turning Tom Hanks’ Classic Film ‘Big’ Into An Event Series

By September 30, 2014

Here we go again, kids!

The Wrap reports that Fox has bought the rights to a half-hour comedy “loosely” based on the Tom Hanks classic film Big, about a boy who wishes he could be big and is transformed into an adult’s body while still being a kid on the inside.


In what Fox is calling an “event series,” “Big” will “explore what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever.” The show will be written and executive produced by Kevin Biegel (the creator of “Enlisted” & “Cougar Town”) and Mike Royce (co-creator/executive producer “Men Of A Certain Age”). Royce also served as exec producer and showrunner on Louie C.K.’s “Lucky Louie” (HBO) and “1600 Penn” (NBC), so this show seems to be in good hands.

That’s all that’s been put out there, but when I know more, you’ll know! Until then, enjoy the iconic “Chopsticks” performance!
