Jack Black's hit film School Of Rock is set for a small screen makeover.

The 2003 movie, in which Black portrayed a struggling musician who becomes a supply teacher and helps his young students form a rock band, is being adapted for a new musical comedy series on America's Nickelodeon network next year (15).

The film's director, Richard Linklater, has signed on as an executive producer for the kid-centred show, and casting is expected to be announced soon.

The original movie, which also featured iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove, Sarah Silverman and Joan Cusack, is also being developed into a stage musical by theatre mogul Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
