Welcome to another installment in our Escape the Ordinary Fun Day Friday series! The CW recently announced that Little Women will be given a “hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation.” This new TV show will put a very interesting spin on the classic book by beloved author Louisa May Alcott. According to the executive producers Alexis Jolly and Michael Weatherly the show will feature: “disparate half-sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy band together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy that stretches far beyond anything they have ever imagined – all while trying not to kill each other in the process.”
Buzzfeed decided to publish an article in response to this revelation, in which they provide 10 other classic books that could be given a new gritty adaptation. In typical Buzzfeed fashion, rest assured that these are extremely satirical, but who knows, maybe one day you’ll see the apocalyptic version of Little House on the Prairie!!
