Showtime gets going with ‘Girl’

Skein boast ensemble cast that includes Hamilton, De Mornay, Channing

NEW YORK — Committing to another miniseries, Showtime has given the go-ahead to “It’s a Girl Thing,” a comedy-drama featuring an ensemble cast, including Linda Hamilton, Rebecca De Mornay and Stockard Channing.

Last month, Showtime said it would start production on “Armistead Maupin’s Further Tales of the City,” the second sequel to the original PBS mini “Tales of the City.”

The cable web plans to commission two or three more minis in 2000.

“It’s a Girl Thing,” which Lee Rose will write, direct and exec produce, deals with a psychologist (Channing) and four of her patients.

Other cast members include Kate Capshaw, Mia Farrow, Camryn Manheim and Peta Wilson, among others. “Girl” will make it to Showtime’s schedule early in 2001.
