Yep. They're doing it. A Heathers TV show. On Fox.
Deep down, even the people making the show know this is an awful idea. They're all running around with big fake smiles on their faces, telling each other how awesome the show will be, and then they go home for the day to their houses high in the Hollywood hills, and float around in their backyard swimming pools wondering if they're the only ones who secretly think this show is an utterly horrible idea. Everybody else at the studio seems to like the idea so much. It can't really be as stupid and crappy as it seems. Can it?
In the unlikely event that any of the people working on the Heathers series read this, I say unto you now: don't just stand by and let this show happen. Get angry, get loud, go pound on some office doors and make a stink. Be the one who stood up for TV that doesn't suck turds, and everybody will respect the hell out of you while they watch you clean out your desk and get escorted off the lot by studio security. You'll end up working in your uncle's shoe store, but you'll be able to hold your head up high as you help fat ladies try to fit their size eights into size sixes.
