Despite facing backlash and potential legal woes because of certain biopics going into production, Lifetime looks like they’re not slowing down. Up next, the network plans to produce a romantic comedy and has snagged songstress Jill Scott, Think Like A Man’s Regina Hall and newlywed femcee Eve, Shadow and Act reports.

The flick, titled With this Ring, is about a group of friends who promise to get hitched within the next year after attending a fourth friend’s wedding. Gabrielle Union, Tracey Edmonds and Sheila Duckworth will be behind the scenes as executive producers. The Nzingha Stewart-directed project will begin filming next month.

This is the second time Lifetime has casted Jill Scott for a project. She also starred in the 2012 drama Steel Magnolias alongside Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard and Queen Latifah.
