It’s a throwaway line from a Variety puff piece trying to explain, among other reasons, why CBS picked up and revived an IP (the One Day at a Time remake) that Netflix canned after three seasons because not enough people were watching it. Which CBS can do! I don’t watch network TV and I don’t have cable and I didn’t care if that show was on Netflix or not. But the Princess Bride thing was, like, one sentence in it.
I don’t have to explain to anybody reading this why remaking The Princess Bride is a bad idea. Including, honestly, Hollywood. They already know.
