‘Blue Crush’ Reboot in the Works at NBC

Kate Bosworth starred in 2002 surfing film


NBC is preparing to make a splash with a reboot of “Blue Crush.”

The network is developing a drama series from Universal Television and Imagine Television that is based on the 2002 surfing film.

“Blue Crush” will focus on a surfer in Hawaii’s North Shore who aims to revive her career and unite the local community following a tragic accident.

Hannah Schneider (“Reign”) writes and executive produces. Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo also executive produce, while Imagine’s Jillian Kugler oversees.

Director John Stockwell’s 2002 film starred Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez.

Film-to-TV reboots continue to be a hot commodity, as this one follows such in-development projects as “True Lies” and “The Nice Guys” at Fox and “Tremors” at Syfy.
