Casting Call: The Baby-Sitter’s Club
In a not particularly surprising development, it has been announced that the ever-popular Baby-Sitter’s Club will be getting a new and improved television show. The books, and presumably the show, deal with issues such as crushes, school, self-confidence, divorce, race relations, and more. I was an uber-fan of the books growing up and do love a re-watch of the successful 90s film every now and then. Combine that with my affinity for creating useless Casting Call lists and, here we go.
Note: In the books these girls are mostly around thirteen years old but I’m bumping up the ages for my Casting Call, as I hope they do for the show. Honestly, who wants a 13-year old watching their infant?
