Selena Gomez Is Making a “Sixteen Candles”-Inspired Series Called “15 Candles”
SELENA GOMEZ is developing a series for Peacock inspired by the 1984 JOHN HUGHES classic, “Sixteen Candles”. It’ll be called “15 Candles”.
Not much is known yet, except it’ll be a coming-of-age comedy about four Latina high schoolers as they approach quinceañera season. (Hence, the 15 candles, instead of 16.)
Not sure what the parallels to “Sixteen Candles” will be . . . like does someone’s birthday get forgotten? Will there be a Jake Ryan? And who will play Long Duk Dong? (Just kidding. They’re obviously gonna scrap that character. Right?)
