Jennifer Garner's 'Ugly Mother' Transformation for 'The Tribes of Palos Verdes' -- See the Poster (Exclusive)
The moms that Jennifer Garner plays onscreen -- in movies like Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and Miracles From Heaven -- usually feel cut from the same cloth. They’re doting, loving mothers with a smile on their face and a twinkle in their eye -- the type of mom you imagine Garner is in real life, too. In The Tribes of Palos Verdes, however, she plays Sandy Mason, a mother of two teenagers whose life spirals out of control after her husband leaves her for another woman. And in this poster for the film, debuting on Et, Sandy hovers over her carefree daughter (played by It Follows actress Maika Monroe).

Variety is reporting that TV Land has given a series order to a small screen reboot of the cult 1988 favourite Heathers, having been impressed with the pilot episode from writer and executive producer Jason Micallef (Butter).
