Lifetime announced plans today for an expanded programming slate that includes 75 movie titles for 2019.
The lineup includes “Robin Roberts Presents,” with a series of movies and documentaries, and “Seven Deadly Sins,” an anthology from T.D. Jakes.
The network is developing a number of book franchises, including the previously announced Jane Green three-picture deal. “The first movie, ‘Tempting Fate,’ stars Alyssa Milano and is directed by Kim Raver and Manu Boyer, who also executive produce the trio of films,” Lifetime noted.
Also being made into Lifetime Original Movies is the “Seven Deadly Sins” anthology by Victoria Christopher Murray. Lifetime has re-teamed with T.D. Jakes and has commissioned the first three books — “Lust,” “Envy” and “Greed” — to debut next year.
V.C. Andrews’ novels will also be a part of Lifetime’s 2019 lineup. The first of the movies, “V.C. Andrews’ Heaven,” stars Annalise Basso, Julie Benz, Chris William Martin and Chris McNally.
Lifetime announced that it has completed production on “Somebody’s Someone,” starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Angela Fairley, based on the memoir of Regina Louise.
Lifetime noted that it is partnering with the Be Me Be Free anxiety empowerment campaign, which encourages teens and young adults to share their stories. Of the submitted stories, one will be made into a Lifetime movie to air in 2019.
