MADRID - The girls are back in town. Expanding its presence in the U.K. market, A + E Networks U.K. has confirmed it will launch femme-focused entertainment channel Lifetime there some time this fall…
Lifetime Against The Wall
Lifetime's post-Thanksgiving telecast, starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, is just hammy enough to generate numbers rivaling the hordes of paparazzi that dogged the not-always-happy couple.
Lifetime scored big Sunday with its "Steel Magnolias" update, which drew the largest audience for a single-part cable movie in five years.
Jennifer Love Hewitt drew 2.8 million callers, er, viewers Sunday night with Lifetime's 10 p.m. premiere of "The Client List."
Andrew Walker, who recently co-starred on Lifetime's "Against the Wall," has joined the cast of Dimension Films' thriller "Penthouse North."
David Grossman has inked with UTA. Grossman is currently an exec producer and helmer on ABC's "Desperate Housewives." He is repped by Evolution Entertainment.
Two series hardly constitute a pattern, but Lifetime's latest original dramas both sip from the same tepid pool: A female detective, balancing work and family.
Nancy Dubuc is quick to recall that when she arrived at Lifetime in May 2010, she didn't have much to work with. Content for its pipeline was in short supply -- or, more accurately, no supply.
Lifetime has doubled its scripted series content to four while also picking up 11 unscripted skeins for the 2011-12 TV campaign.
Lifetime is putting Roseanne Barr out to pasture -- on a reality skein to be shot on her farm in Hawaii.
