A new TV series based on the 1994 Reality Bites is coming to NBC, with Ben Stiller himself helming the project, according to multiple media reports.

Stiller, who directed and starred in the film, is revisiting it as a show and will executive produce; original screenwriter Helen Childress will pen the script.

No word if Lisa Loeb will re-record "Stay" for the opening credits. Fingers crossed.

Much like the original, the NBC series will reportedly take place in the early ’90s and center on a novice filmmaker and her slacker friends in Houston.

While no casting was announced, it’s safe to say Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Stiller, Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn will not be reprising their roles.

It remains to be seen how effectively the humor and struggles of 1990s college graduates will translate to a 2013 audience, but you tell us, THGers:
