VH1 Greenlights “Satan’s Sisters” Series Based On Star Jones’ Novel
Star Jones‘ 2011 juicy novel, “Satan’s Sisters,” has been greenlit to become an hour-long scripted drama at VH1.
Here’s the scoop via Deadline:
Satan’s Sisters will focus on the five female co-hosts of The Lunch Hour and the fireworks that ensue each weekday when they discuss life, love, family, politics, and gossip. The women all have very different points of view but are best friends and sisters — while they’re on TV. But the backstage world is heavy with power struggles, personal demons, diva fits, love affairs, man troubles, cat fights and cocktails.
“I would be lying if I said that Satan’s Sisters wasn’t influenced by the soap opera life of daytime TV, but it is a work of fiction,” said Jones, who left The View in 2006. “All the characters are inspired, in parts, by someone I’ve worked with, worked for, interviewed, was interviewed by and/or even prosecuted.”
“Satan’s Sisters” is set to premiere on VH1 in 2017.
