Bill Murray Comedy ‘Stripes’ Gets TV Reboot at CBS

”Whitest Kids U’ Know“ trio writing update of 1981 movie

CBS is heading into the trenches with “Stripes.”

The network is developing a single-camera TV reboot of the 1981 Ivan Reitman-directed film that provided an early-career leading role for Bill Murray.

Trevor Moore, Sam Brown and Zach Cregger from IFC’s “Whitest Kids U’ Know” are writing and executive producing.

Like the popular movie, the show will focus on a rebellious outsider who finds direction in life by joining the military and uniting a group of quirky misfits.

The co-production from Sony Pictures Television Studio and CBS Television Studios is directed by Reitman, who executive produces for his Montecito Picture Company.

Also executive producing on the TV project are Moore, Brown, Cregger, Julius Goldy Sharpe and Tom Pollock. Amie Karp and Peter Fried are producers.
