Based on the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, the series is a pitch-black comedy set in the present day, as heroine Veronica Sawyer (Grace Victoria Cox, "Under the Dome") deals with a very different but equally vicious group of "Heathers."
The cast also includes James Scully as JD, Melanie Field ("Wicked" National Tour) as Heather Chandler, Brendan Scannell ("Funny or Die") as Heather Duke, and Jasmine Mathews as Heather McNamara. Original feature film cast member Shannen Doherty guest stars.
"Heathers" is produced by Lakeshore Entertainment. Jason Micallef ("Butter"), who wrote the pilot script, serves as executive producer and showrunner. Leslye Headland ("Sleeping with Other People," "Bachelorette") directed and was an executive producer on the pilot. Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi executive produce.
