Robin Roberts is expanding her territory in television by inking a new deal with Lifetime to produce a series of movies and documentaries.
Via Page Six:
The first project will focus on gospel singer and activist Mahalia Jackson. Next up is an account of the real-life story of Alexis Manigo, abducted at birth from a Florida hospital.
Each will include a movie and companion documentary to be executive produced by Roberts. They’re set to air next year under the banner “Robin Roberts Presents.”
The deal with Roberts is part of Lifetime’s expansion of its movie slate, which will number 75 in 2019, the channel said.
Congratulations to Robin!
Although Lifetime movies have a history of being sketchy and sometimes downright ridiculous – I trust Robin to get the job done!
