Lifetime is working with actress Renee Zellweger on a drama that is based on a subject near to the actress’s heart, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.
The story comes from Zellweger’s own life’s arc, taking her from a small Texas town to Hollywood, the story reports.
Called "Cinnamon Girl," the drama will be set in the 1960s and revolve around four girls as they grow up during the cultural revolution of that era, the story notes. The project is created by Zellweger and Anthony Tambakis of "Warrior," the piece adds.
The project is Zellweger’s second for Lifetime, where she executive produced 2008’s "Living Proof," the true story of the doctor who developed the breast cancer drug Herceptin, the article notes.
