'The Sandlot' TV Series in the Works for Disney+

A series based on the cult classic movie The Sandlot is being developed for the new streaming service Disney+.

David Mickey Evans, who directed and co-wrote the 1993 movie, is writing and executive producing the new series.

While the first film followed a group of friends playing baseball during the summer of 1962, the series will take place in 1984 and focus on the children of the original characters, according to Variety.

“I just sold a Sandlot television show. We’re about to get an order for the first two seasons,” Evans revealed back in March. “I can’t tell you who’s gonna stream it, but I know who’s gonna stream it — it wouldn’t take a genius to figure that out right now. [...] I already got all the original cast members back. It takes place in 1984 when they’re all like 33 years old and they all have children of their own. That’s all I can tell you.”
