Freaky Friday gets yet another face lift as Variety reports that CBS Films is developing a comedy called Freaky Monday (which leaves room for three sequels). This time, a shy middle school girl ends up swapping bodies with her teacher.
It’s early for casting, but if they can get Lindsay Lohan to play a libidinous English teacher, I smell success. The Freaky Friday concept has been tried a number of times on both film and television, but if they’re going to revisit the whole body-switching concept, I suggest they push the envelope a bit more. Haven’t TV producers learned anything from Wife Swap?
1. Selena Gomez and Miranda Cosgrove swap roles and see if anyone over the age of 30 notices the difference.
2. Miley Cyrus trades bodies with her dad Billy Ray. Mayhem ensues when Miley is caught sexting a 40-year-old woman.
3. The Super Why! kids trade places with the Little Einstein kids and…well, nothing changes.
4. Dora and Diego swap places with Maya and Miguel. It all goes well until Miguel beats the stuffing out of Swiper, and Dora has to learn what a commercial is.
