Krysten Ritter’s New Drama Pilot Is an Updated ‘Heathers’


Breaking Bad‘s Krysten Ritter has made her first sale as a producer to MTV. Cassandra French’s Finishing School For Boys is an adaptation of the Eric Garcia chick-lit satire novel of the same name. The author also wrote the script for the small screen drama, which is being described as another Heathers . The story centers on Cassie French who is a 20-something overachiever that has a dream job, but a lousy personal life. After her latest disappointing date with a true blue loser, she locks him up in her basement and trains him to become the perfect gentleman. It sounds like a quirky enough tale for Ritter to also star in, but Deadline doesn’t report any news concerning casting. Ritter will be appearing in ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 (premiering April 11) as a con artist party girl living in New York City.
