School Of Rock TV Series Is Coming


Kids everywhere will soon be getting direct access to life lessons from the School of Rock.

The 2004 hit film is being made into a 13-part children's TV show to be aired on Nickelodeon. The channel is teaming up with Paramount TV to make the show, which will see original director Richard Linklater and producer Scott Rudin on board in executive production roles. Jim and Steve Armogida (My Family) will write and executive produce, with casting to be announced shortly and a pencilled air date of Spring 2015.

The storyline is expected to follow the same path as the film, which showed Jack Black's Dewey Finn pretending to be a teacher and training up a class of children in the ways of rock. Paramount TV president Amy Powell stated, "With Dewey's outrageous personality and rock star sensibilities taking centre stage, School of Rock will be an irresistibly fun show for the whole family."

If everything proceeds as expected, the show will beat Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical to be the first spin-off from the movie - the composer and theatre impresario's adaptation is expected to arrive in 2016 after he acquired the rights last year.
