Angela Bassett isn’t the first person we might expect to see directing a TV movie. Nonetheless, her Whitney Houston biopic seems to really be getting off the ground, with Yaya DaCosta in the lead role. This week, Lifetime premiered the first picture of DaCosta glammed out like Whitney Houston, and the similarities are pretty passable
Lifetime isn't done mining popular book series from yesteryear for original projects. Except in the case of Jean Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear series, the story is being developed for a TV pilot rather than a TV movie.
Lifetime’s upcoming Aaliyah: Princess of R&B biopic is no longer so up or coming. On Monday, news broke that the young actress tapped to play the R&B star in the project, Zendaya, has dropped the role. Production on the Lifetime Original Movie is currently on hold at the network.
Taken from King's surprisingly grim 2010 collection Full Dark, No Stars, Big Driver centers on Tess Thorne (Bello), a highly popular thriller writer who has a long drive ahead of her following a book signing.
When you wake up in the morning, there’s no possible alarm that can give out the kind of warning that is necessary to hear this story. Lifetime has recently been busy rebranding themselves as something more than just a women-in-trouble network, and they’re reaching out to a wide irony-embracing audience with The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story.
Lifetime is gearing up for an upcoming original movie about the short and tragic rise to fame for R&B star Aaliyah, and they didn’t have to look very far to find their star. Pop musician and child star Zendaya has been tapped to take the lead in Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, which is set to air later this year.
Lifetime has unveiled a pretty intriguing sneak preview of their futuristic new series The Lottery. The story for this drama is set in 2025, in a dystopian future where a global fertility crisis is underway. For some mysterious reason, women are unable to give birth. Now, one hundred viable embryos have been created and are ready to be implanted. A national lottery is held to determine who will carry them.
Nicholas Sparks is best known for his celebrated novels, many of which have been adapted into feature films, but his upcoming endeavor doesn't involve a book, nor a feature film for that matter. Lifetime announced today that they've set the date for Deliverance Creek, a TV movie that will mark Sparks' TV debut as a producer. The period drama is described as a revenge story and will star Lauren Ambrose, with "special guest star" Skeet Ulrich.
Lifetime aired their Flowers in the Attic followup Petals on the Wind last night, in all its steamy, fiery melodramatic glory. Is there more where that came from? It would appear so. Lifetime is developing not one but two more sequels to follow Petals on the Wind, based on the two novels that Andrews wrote to close out the series, If There Be Thorns and Seeds of Yesterday.
Petals on the Wind airs tonight! If you're a fan of V.C. Andrews Flowers in the Attic/Dollanganger series, this TV movie has been a long time coming. And those who tuned in earlier this year for Flowers in the Attic are likely wondering what happened next. Petals on the Wind answers that question, and then some!
The countdown to Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic sequel movie Petals on the Wind is just days away at this point. Lifetime has released a dramatic new trailer, titled "Seduction," which gives fans of the movie and V.C. Andrews' series a novel a glimpse of the drama that awaits for Cathy and her siblings.
Angela Bassett's better known as an actor than she is as a director, but it looks like she'll be taking some time out from in front of the camera to helm a TV movie based on the life of Whitney Houston. Lifetime announced plans today for an original movie, tentatively titled Whitney Houston, which will be directed by Houston's Waiting to Exhale co-star Angela Bassett.
So it should surprise exactly no one that Lifetime is getting into the classic horror game with former The Walking Dead showrunner for – get this – Damien, a sequel of sorts to Richard Donner’s devilish 1976 thriller The Omen which apparently has nothing to do with Don Taylor’s 1978 sequel Damien: Omen II.
Ok, V.C. Andrews fans. We've been waiting for decades to see Petals on the Wind adapted for the screen. So how does Lifetime's TV movie measure up? I've seen it, and I'm going to be as honest as possible with you here: there's good news and there's not-so-good news.
Following up on the dramatic teaser for Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic followup Petals on the Wind, Lifetime has offered up some very fittingly floral character posters, which merge the viney look of the Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind promotional content with a bit of 70s glamour.
