Paramount Network announced Monday that it’s developing a new half-hour series based on the 1996 film “First Wives Club"
Tracy Oliver, who most recently co-wrote the screenplay for the adult comedy summer hit “Girls Trip” is attached to the project. She became the first African-American woman to write a movie that grossed over $100 million domestically.
The series will have roughly the same plot as the film, which starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn as a trio of recently-divorced women who seek revenge on their husbands, who left them for younger women. In the meantime, the group also bonds together and finds strength to move forward thanks to their sisterhood.
