    NBC Plans 'Sexy Contemporary Take' on Oliver Twist - CBR

    A young woman named Twist teams with a group of outcasts who use their unique skills to catch wealthy criminals.


    This isn't Oliver Twist, this is the Artful Dodger adventures. There's no need to change Charles Dickens' stories, modernize them maybe but not a major change like this.

    This will end nicely... wake me up when they announce Aunt Tania's Cabin, or Hot Gal and the Sea, or The Countess of Monte Cristo,or Herculena, or better yet shut up before giving them more ideas.

    Yup...

    Because gender swap is real popular and lucrative in Hollywood.

    The literary critic in me cringes, but the sexy women lover in me is excited.

    That actually sounds like the kind of show that could get decent viewership, original story aside.

    Honestly, more than any gender or modernization matters, the bit that feels off is simply that there's not a kid lead anymore, that's synonymous with the story in my head.

    Been there, done that.
    It's called Revenge.

    Better yet, let's cut the Oliver Twist angle altogether for it to just be about graffiti artists.

    SyFy has been knocking it out of the park with quality shows like Van Helsing and Wynonna Earp, so NBC doing this should be just awesome!
