A Goonies series is in the works as Fox. 

According to multiple outlets, the network has given a pilot order to a drama that will reenact the 1985 film. 

In the untitled project, after failing to make it in New York, Stella Cooper returns to her distressed automotive hometown to substitute teach after failing to make it in New York and carrying a heavy secret. She finds inspiration, hope, and ultimately salvation when she agrees to help three students who are pursuing their filmmaking dreams by putting on an impossibly ambitious shot-for-shot remake of one of the student’s favorite movies, The Goonies.

The drama hails from The Bold Type creator Sarah Watson, who will pen and executive produce the pilot. Greg Mottola is attached to direct.

The Goonies was a box office hit, grossing $124 million on a $19 million budget.
