'Steel Magnolias' to Get the Lifetime Treatment

Oct 11, 2011 | 2:28pm EDT

ALTOne of the most beloved chick flicks of all time is coming to THE chick-flick network: Steel Magnolias and Lifetime, respectively.

A TV-movie version -- not a series, rather surprisingly -- is in the works, with Hairspray producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron spearheading the project and A Raisin in the Sun helmer Kenny Leon on board to direct.

In stark contrast to the 1989 film's almost all-white cast (including Julia Roberts, Sally FieldDolly Parton and more), the contemporary Lifetime update would feature a mostly black cast in the same roles.
