HBO isn’t the only cabler staying in the miniseries game.LucyLiu

Lifetime is going forward with “Marry Me,” a story of a woman looking for her Prince Charming. Lucy Liu will topline, with Steven Pasquale (“Rescue Me”), Bobby Cannavale, Enrique Murciano and Annie Potts also on board.

From Sony Pictures Television, four-hour “Marry Me” is set to premiere later this year around the holidays on the femme-skewing net. Barbara Hall, who wrote the script with Susan Weber, exec produces with Susanne Daniels. James Hayman directs.

Lifetime aired the miniseries “Maneater” last year and is continuing its commitment to the genre. Many networks who used to schedules minis — both on the broadcast and cable side — have bailed out because of high production costs.

HBO recently won a slew of Emmys for “The Pacific,” while AMC and PBS have also allotted part of their programming budgets to minis. USA Network, which aired “The Starter Wife” mini in 2007, has talked about launching a mini at some point in the future as well.
