Kathy Bates is in final negotiations to topline “Ambulance Girl,” an original movie for Lifetime.
Frank Von Zerneck, Robert Sertner and Patricia Clifford are exec producing the project, based on the true story of how former food writer Jane Stern conquered clinical depression after becoming a paramedic.
Alan Hines (Court TV’s “Guilt by Association”) will pen the screenplay.
Cabler has greenlit production on the movie but has not yet set a target airdate. Lifetime declined comment.
Von Zerneck-Sertner Films is currently shooting “Just a Baby” (Daily Variety, Nov. 16), a Lifetime original telepic.
