The 1985 movie St. Elmo’s Fire opens in Roosevelt Hospital, with a drunken Rob Lowe getting arrested by an MPD officer for drunk driving. Judd Nelson plays his friend, a Congressman’s staffer who drops the name of his employer to try to get his friend off. And, of course, they all head right back to the bar. And now? It’s going to be a TV show.
Of course, the movie features Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Rob Lowe and Demi Moore, so it’s got that much going for it. Perhaps we’ll get lucky and the TV show will at least have interesting people in it?
