Renée Zellweger co-scripting coming of age story set in 1960s
Lifetime is teaming up with Renée Zellweger to develop Cinnamon Girl, a 1960s drama loosely based on Renée Zellweger's journey from small-town Texas to Hollywood.

Created by Renée Zellweger and Anthony Tambakis (Warrior), Cinnamon Girl will revolve around four girls as they come of age during the cultural revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s in Los Angeles. The drama will explore Cassie, Lola, Penny and Lou's lives as they reach a crossroads of the era's political, artistic, social and sexual rebellions.

"Cinnamon Girl is a game changer for our network and is exactly the type of show we want to deliver," Lifetime president and GM Nancy Dubuc said in a statement.

Renée Zellweger will co-write the story alongside Anthony Tambakis, who will pen the script. Gavin O'Connor will direct the project.

No production date has been set.
