Ready to Wear a Freshly cut ‘Prêt-à-Porter’

It’s been 30 years since the late great Robert Altman gave the world the chatty, breezy satire of the fashion world, “Prêt-à-Porter” (known as “Ready to Wear” for its U.S. release) and that means it’s time for it to come back into style. Original production company Miramax (yep, they still exist) is working with the BBC on what’s being described as a high-profile TV series. The original film, which starred dozens of well-known names including Sophia Loren, Lauren Bacall and Julia Roberts, focused on the lead-up to Paris Fashion Week. A long-form series in the early stages of development — plot and setting currently TBD — will allow for another extensive roster of young acting talent and cameo appearances by hot fashion names of today. One detail is known: Ava Pickett, writer on “The Great,” another series full of amazing outfits and barbed one-liners, is on board. A perfect fit.
