Heckerling’s first success was writing and directing another teen cult classic, Fast Times At Ridgemont High. She felt like she could never top the success of it so she decided in the ’90s to start developing a television series instead.

In 1993, Heckerling came up with a series called No Worries. It was going to be about the life of a group of popular kids in a California high school, with the main character being an optimistic girl. Sound familiar? The networks never picked it up so Heckerling took the concept and reworked it into Clueless.
