A “female-skewing cable network has picked up MGM Television’s long-gestating ‘Fame’ reboot,” reports The Hollywood Reporter in a scoop by Lesley Goldberg.
The network is Lifetime, Goldberg writes.
The story adds, “announced in August 2012, the drama hails from MGM Television and is described as a reimagining of the 1980 hit movie and subsequent NBC TV series. The drama, like the originals, revolves around a group of adults struggling to balance high pressures of life at a performing arts college along with the trials and drama of their personal lives.”
Nigel Lythgoe (‘American Idol,’ ‘So You Think You Can Dance’) is one of the executive producers, along with Chad Gutstein and Charles Segars, the story says.
