Could there be better news from telly land of a Wednesday morning? The absolute classic eighties movie that was Big is now set to be made into a TV series by Fox, with Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce writing and executive producing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film stars a young Tom Hanks who plays the adult version of a kid called Josh Baskin, who made a wish to become a grown up at an amusement fortuneteller coin machine called Zoltar. It features one of the most iconic scenes from eighties movies when Hanks plays the floor piano in a New York department store (which tourists still queue up in their droves to do).

It will be a half hour programme and is described as "an event series based on the movie that explores what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid — and how in today's world, those two things are more confused than ever."

Writers Biegel and Royce previously worked on Fox's comedy series 'Enlisted' which proved popular with the critics although did not perform well in ratings so never made it to a second season. Biegel, however, also co-created Cougar Town with Bill Lawrence while Royce co-created TNT's Men of a Certain Age.

Fox has also previously announced it will be making movie Minority Report into a TV series too - it seems that the increasingly competitive TV landscape has Networks looking to bring in audiences from previously recognised brands.

But you know, who cares about the reasons, Big is coming back!
