Heathers movie screenwriter: It was a mistake to delay the Heathers TV series due to Parkland
“I think they made a mistake pushing the show back because of the Parkland shooting,” said Daniel Waters, who wrote the 1988 cult film but has no involvement on the Paramount Network TV series. “When it comes to dark comedy, you just have to throw it out there and have people chew on it and argue about it.”

Why postponing Heathers is a mistake: "There will always be another mass shooting"
The Florida school shooting that Paramount Network cited today in delaying the Heathers TV series from its March 7 premiere didn't stop the cable channel from releasing the pilot online one week after the massacre. Still, subsequent episodes plan to tackle gun violence. "But even if we take the network’s statement at face value," says Marissa Martinelli, "it is still making a mistake to postpone the series, because the way things stand, there will never be a right time to air an episode about gun violence. Networks have been doing this dance for ages—Buffy the Vampire Slayer put off an episode involving a 'schoolyard massacre' a week after Columbine in 1999—but it’s a very silly dance to do. Guns kill more than 15,000 Americans each year, and in 2018 alone, there have been 35 mass shootings. It’s not even March yet. At that rate, unless lawmakers take meaningful, drastic action, there is simply no reason to believe that there won’t be another mass shooting, and another reason to postpone Heathers again, in April or June or December or whenever they decide the time is right. "

Heathers TV series delayed in wake of the Florida school shooting
The pitch-black comedy based on the 1988 cult film was originally scheduled to premiere March 7, three weeks after the Parkland high school shooting. A new premiere date hasn't been announced. “Paramount Network’s original series Heather is a satirical comedy that takes creative risks in dealing with many of society’s most challenging subjects ranging from personal identity to race and socio-economic status to gun violence,” Paramount Network said in a statement. “While we stand firmly behind the show, in light of the recent tragic events in Florida and out of respect for the victims, their families and loved ones, we feel the right thing to do is delay the premiere until later this year.” The show's pilot episode was made available on iTunes and on demand last week.
