Lifetime is really investing in Black audiences these days. Now on their development slate is an adaptation of the 2006 book The Vow written by former Essence Editor-in-Chief Angela Burt-Murray, current Ebony Editor-In-Chief Mitzi Miller and Think Like A Man co-writer Denene Millner.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the Lifetime movie will now be titled With This Ring. Jill Scott, Eve and Regina Hall will play three women who attend a friends wedding on New Year’s Eve and all three decide they want to also make it to the altar in the next year.
Tracy Edmonds and Gabrielle Union are producing along with Soul Food’s Sheila Duckworth. Nzinga Stewart will write and direct.
With This Ring will film in Cleveland in August and will be broadcast on the network later this year.
