The network, which is also home to hits like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, announced it put the series into development with the original creative team behind it.

This is probably one of those rare cases where an updated version might actually work better than the original!
Producer Irwin Winkler is reportedly working on a TV series based off his 1995 film The Net!
"We thought it would make a great TV series. A lot of people said it was ahead of its time anyhow."
The original screenwriters, John Brancato and Michael Ferris, have also signed on to adapt the movie for television audiences!
Inneresting! We definitely think that the story might fit well with technology as it is now! A lot more possibilities with the story!
We doubt Sandy would come back though! But they should still try to get her for a cameo, anyway!
