Alicia Silverstone and Mark Feuerstein have joined the cast of Netflix and Walden Media’s adaptation of The Baby-Sitters Club.
The series is based on Ann M. Martin’s best-selling books and follows the friendship and babysitting adventures of five best friends – Kristy Thomas, Mary Anne Spier, Claudia Kishi, Stacey McGill, and Dawn Schafer – in Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
Silverstone will play Elizabeth Thomas-Brewer, the mother of Kristy Thomas and love interest of Watson Brewer, played by Feuerstein.
Production has begun on the single-camera family show in Vancouver.
The family-friendly adaptation comes from Walden Media and Michael De Luca, who will executive produce. Rachel Shukert (GLOW) will serve as showrunner, Lucy Kitada and Naia Cucukov will serve as executive producers and Lucia Aniello (Broad City) will serve as director and executive producer.
Ann M. Martin will also produce alongside Aniello’s Paulilu Productions.
