Lifetime, Zellweger To Develop Drama 'Cinnamon Girl'

Lifetime has partnered with actress Renée Zellweger to develop drama series, Cinnamon Girl.

The series, set in late 1960s/early 1970s Los Angeles, follows four girls as they come of age during the era. Creators Zellweger and Anthony Tambakis are set to executive produce, alongside Gavin O'Connor, with Zellweger and Tambakis co-writing the script.

"Renée's passion, clarity of character and deep emotion for this project immediately transported us to the late '60s/early '70s and created a resonance with us wanting to relive that energy," said Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Networks in announcing the project. "Cinnamon Girl is a game changer for our network and is exactly the type of show we want to deliver."

Zellweger previously partnered with Lifetime on the 2008 original moving Living Proof.
