Lifetime has placed a pilot order for a new drama from Oscar winner Renee Zellweger, TheWrap.com reports. The female-skewing project is "Cinnamon Girl," co-created and written by Zellweger and Anthony Tambakis and directed by Gavin O’Connor ("Warrior").

Set in the late 1960s/early 1970s, "Cinammon Girl" is a coming-of-age story about four young women involved in the volatile, exciting music scene of L.A.’s Laurel Canyon.

Zellweger injected parallels with her own journey into the story, coming from a small town in Texas to Hollywood.

In a statement, Lifetime said the pilot will explore "the characters’ lives at the crossroads of the era’s political, artistic, social and sexual rebellions."

Zellweger won an Oscar in 2004 for "Cold Mountain."
