TV’s high ‘Five’

Lifetime's telepic preems in Gotham

No one would accuse showbiz types of shying away from breasts.

“Hollywood is incredibly boob-obsessed,” quipped Lifetime’s Nancy Dubuc at Monday’s Gotham preem of the network’s telepic “Five,” a quintet of shorts that tackle the topic of breast cancer, at Skylight SoHo. “But this is a way for us to be obsessed in a more positive and meaningful way.”

Still, it was no easy feat putting together a telepic about the less-than-sexy side of breasts.

“Ten years ago, this could not have been made,” said exec producer Paula Wagner. “But Lifetime stepped up and said, ‘We’re going to do something that’s relevant and meaningful, and will hopefully bring awareness to this enemy.’ ”

Many of the project’s creatives, including Jennifer Aniston and Patricia Clarkson, spoke of a personal connection with the disease. “Hopefully this movie sends the message that it’s OK to talk about this,” added Wagner.

One fan felt so emboldened that she arrived topless, causing a stir on the red carpet. “Maybe she’s a survivor, and she’s like, ‘Hey, look at these babies,’ ” joked star Lyndsy Fonseca.
