Jill Scott to star in ‘Sins of the Mother’

Telepic to bow on Lifetime Movie Network in 2010

Jill Scott, most recently seen in HBO’s “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,” has signed on to star in the Lifetime telepic “Sins of the Mother.”

Longform, which starts production this week, will bow on sibling Lifetime Movie Network some time in 2010.

“Sins of the Mother” revolves around a grad student who returns home to face her abusive, alcoholic mother — played by Scott — only to discover that her mom is sober and has a 3-year-old daughter and new life.

Telepic is based on the novel “Orange Mint and Honey,” written by Carleen Brice. Elizabeth Hunter adapted the novel for TV, while Paul Kaufman is directing. Damon Lee (“Obsessed”) is the exec producer for Mother Road Prods., which is behind the project.

Scott, best known for her successful music career as a top-selling neo-soul singer, will next star in Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married, Too?” — a sequel to “Why Did I Get Married.” Other film credits include “Cavedweller” alongside Kyra Sedgwick.
