Surfer girl "Gidget," the iconic film and TV character that made Sandra Dee and Sally Field stars, is being dusted off for a comeback to the big and small screens, reports Variety.
Pterodactyl Production’s Barney Cohen and feature producer Mark Canton are teaming up
to develop an update of the series.
Canton said of the property, which also will be developed as a motion picture, "Gidget has always been such a strong symbol of girl power. With female surfing exploding across the globe, the time is right to bring her back in a major way."
