Diane Ladd has been added to the cast of the Lifetime telepic “Gracie’s Choice,” also starring Anne Heche and Kristen Bell.
Inspired by a true story, the made-for centers on a 17-year-old (Bell) who adopts her three brothers after her drug-addicted mother (Heche) is arrested and thrown in jail. Ladd plays her grandmother.
Pic will be produced by von Zerneck-Sertner Films. Joyce Eliason wrote the script; Peter Werner will serve as director and co-exec producer.
