Alicia Silverstone and Mark Feuerstein Have Joined Netflix's Series Adaptation of THE BABY-SITTERS CLUB
Netflix is adapting a new family series based on the beloved book series The Baby-Sitters Club. So far, we haven’t received tons of information, but we now have our first casting information, with Alicia Silverstone (Clueless, American Woman) and Mark Feuerstein (What Women Want, Royal Pains).
The show will follow the books, which chronicled the friendships and baby-sitting adventures of five best friends Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, and Dawn Schafer in their suburban hometown of Stoneybrook, Connecticut. Silverstone will play Kristy’s mom, Elizabeth, and Feuerstein with play Watson Brewer, Elizabeth’s love interest.
Fans of the books span the last several decades, and with over 200 books in print, the series has no shortage of stories to be told. It will be fun to have a family series that I will be able to enjoy alongside my daughter. The series has a ten-episode first season order, and we don’t have a release date yet, but hopefully we will see it sometime in 2020.
