‘Girlfriends’ creator hints at show reboot

“Girlfriends” creator Mara Brock Akil has a new project with OWN, “Love Is,” produced with husband Salim Akil and Oprah Winfrey.

But there may still be a future with her former hit.

“Girlfriends” ran for eight years, but the highly rated series wound up canceled by the CW in 2008 without a finale being shot, and no closure for fans.

“I would like to end the ‘Girlfriends’ story,” Akil told us.

She’s even reportedly written a script for a film version.

“There’s an audience globally,” she added. “And to tell the story right . . . probably needs about $40-, $50-, $60 million, but I know what the budget is. Let’s write that check to make hundreds of millions of dollars — but for me to carry that on my back begging people to make it . . . No, I’m not interested.”
