Lifetime Taps Jill Scott and More for Romantic Comedy


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.
