Welp! The CW will not be moving forward with a reboot of “The Game.”
The news comes a little over a month after the announcement that got everyone hype.
According to an exclusive report by Deadline, Mara Brock Akil had a change of heart about doing a reboot.
Based on the pilot script by Akil and Greggory, I hear the CW brass made the decision not to move forward with the CBS TV Studios-produced project in its current form but were open to redeveloping it with Akil. I hear Akil, after consideration, declined the redevelopment offer as she and Greggory had executed her vision of what a next chapter of The Game should look like.
Written by Akil and Greggory, the new incarnation of The Game was to have a new Baltimore setting. The Idea was for some of the original cast members to come back as the show’s out-of-touch old-timers are determined to help a bunch of knuckle-head new-schoolers navigate the ruthless game of football on and off the field.
Oh well, some things are better left alone.
