Hit feature film The Devil Wears Prada is being made into a half-hour comedy on Fox.

Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion writer Robin Schiff will write and produce the new show.

While the TV version will incorporate elements of the film, Fox TV president Angela Shapiro-Mathes says, "The TV series will not be exactly like (the movie or the book).

"The reason you loved the book and the reason you loved the movie was these were characters you really cared about in a world you wanted to learn more about."

The film's director David Frankel will not be involved in the new project, nor will the book's author Lauren Weisberger.

Since its release last summer, the film has grossed $124 million in the U.S. and it went straight to the top of the U.K. box office last weekend.
