News   "Little Women" Adapted Into Gritty Sci-Fi TV Series
The CW Network is developing a "gritty" and "hyper-stylized" remake of Louisa May Alcott's celebrated 1868 novel "Little Women," which has already been adapted into various films and Broadway stage shows. According to Deadline, the sci-fi re-imagining will take place in a dark future.

In the new series, the four Marsh sisters "band together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia," reports Deadline. The latest film adaptation of "Little Women" was Gillian Armstrong's 1994, Oscar-nominated movie, starring Susan Sarandon, Winona Ryder, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes and Christian Bale.

The musical adaptation of Little Women, featuring music by Jason Howland, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein and a book by Allan Knee, was seen on Broadway in 2004 at the Virginia Theatre. The play was produced in 1916, 1931,1944 and again in 1945. A satirical adaptation was also produced last year at the People's Improv Theatre, titled Women; Chiara Atik's comedy compared the classic tale to HBO's "Girls."
