Sandra Bullock Planning ‘Miss Congeniality’ Series
Sandra Bullock is planning a TV version of Miss Congeniality.
The Heat actress reportedly wants to produce a comedic spin-off of her hit 2000 movie, in which she played FBI agent Gracie Hart, who went undercover at a beauty pageant, and is confident it would be a success.
"Sandra is planning on producing a comedic TV version of her smash movie series Miss Congeniality that's being described as Bridesmaids Meets 24. Sandra loved her Miss Congeniality FBI agent character Gracie Hart and the concept so much that for years she has continued to keep up friendships with FBI agents she met while researching it. Sandra loves that real FBI agents, particularly female ones, continue to respond to and write her letters about both Miss Congeniality and The Heat," a source said.
The 49-year-old actress - who produced The George Lopez show from 2002 to 2007 - is looking forward to casting the lead role and wants to introduce the character to a new audience.
"Sandra just feels like it's time to bring this story to a new generation!" the source added.
Sandra reprised the character for 2005 sequel Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous - which, as with the first movie, she also produced - but it was less successful than the original, both commercially and critically.
