Hit movie comedy franchise Legally Blonde is heading for the small screen again after efforts to turn the project into a sitcom failed three years ago (01).

Studio bosses at MGM in Hollywood are reportedly developing a one-hour format for the show, in which the ELLE WOODS character played by REESE WITHERSPOON on the big screen, will deal with legal issues in a lighthearted fashion.

No one has been cast as the TV Elle yet. Witherspoon is not expected to appear in the TV format.
