Live Action Daphne and Velma Movie in the Works


According to a recent announcement, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio Blue Ribbon Content is currently hard at work on a new spin off based on the Scooby-Doo franchise, titled Daphne and Velma. What makes this spin-off project noteworthy is that it’s a live-action series starring Sarah Jeffery (Shades of Blue) and Sarah Gilman (Last Man Standing) as the titular female sleuths.

Of course, this is not the first live action appearance of Daphne and Velma, as there have been several live action takes on the Mystery Inc crew (official projects, and unofficial takes such as the one featured in the cult comedy film Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back.) The official synopsis reveals that this is a prequel of sorts to the Scooby Doo franchise, following the adventures of the duo before they teamed up with Scooby and the rest of the gang:

Before their eventual team-up with Scooby and the gang, bright & optimistic Daphne and whip-smart & analytical Velma are both mystery-solving teens who are best friends but have only met online — until now. Daphne has just transferred to Velma’s school, Ridge Valley High, an incredible tech-savvy institute with all the latest gadgets provided by the school’s benefactor, tech billionaire Tobias Bloom. And while competition is fierce among the students for a coveted internship at Bloom Innovative, Daphne and Velma dig beyond all the gadgets and tech to investigate what is causing some of the brightest students in school to disappear — only to emerge again in a zombie-fied state.

The project is being produced with Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale’s Blondie Girl Productions, and will be release by Warner Bros. Home Ent. in 2018. Lifeboat Prod. provides production services.

“Blondie Girl is committed to telling stories from a female perspective and we could not be more thrilled to give Daphne and Velma their own story,” said Ashley Tisdale and Jennifer Tisdale, producers and founders of Blondie Girl Productions. “It’s so exciting to partner with Warner Home Entertainment and Blue Ribbon Content to introduce a new generation to the smart, charismatic, fearless females that we all know and love.”
