THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB Starts Filming in Vancouver, August 6th, 2019
The BSC is heading to Netflix! There will be 10 episodes of this family-friendly dramedy, focused on the themes of female friendship, entrepreneurship, and empowerment that were so resonant to fans of the classic books. The series will also tackle themes around divorce, racism, and belonging.
“The themes of The Baby-Sitters Club still resonate 30 years after the original book series was released, and there has never been a more opportune time to tell an aspirational story about empowering young female entrepreneurs,” said Melissa Cobb, VP Kids and Family at Netflix. “Together with Ann M. Martin and the team at Walden Media, our ambition is to contemporize the storylines and adventures of this iconic group of girlfriends to reflect modern-day issues.”
“For generations, young people have been captivated and inspired by the enterprising young women of The Baby-Sitters Club,” Walden Media CEO Frank Smith said. “Bringing this iconic series to life comes at a pivotal moment in Walden’s expansion into scripted televised content. We are honored to be part of this special collaboration with Ann M. Martin, Netflix and Michael De Luca.”
