St. Elmo’s Fire is the next feature film in line for the TV treatment: NBC is developing a series adaptation of the 1985 coming-of-age flick.
The project is described as a modern take on the Brat Pack film, which will focus on a group of close friends struggling with their careers, commitment and the responsibilities of adulthood.
The movie followed a similar plot, centering on recent Georgetown University graduates as they adjusted to life in the real world. The cast included Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Ally Sheedy, Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson and Mare Winningham.

Bam also used some of his time on Instagram to ask Dr. Phil for help. If you saw the name Dr. Phil and assumed it was going to get worse before it got better, you’d be correct.

Chrissy Teigen is no stranger to oversharing.
The model, 33, recently documented a session of Botox in a slightly unconventional place: her underarms.“BOTOXED MY ARMPITS” she captioned a video of Dr. Jason Diamond injecting her armpits. “TRULY BEST MOVE I HAVE EVER MADE.”
