Heather Locklear has just signed on to star in the Lifetime network holiday-themed original movie Flirting With 40. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Locklear previously starred in Lifetime's Nora Roberts' Angels Fall, the network's most-watched original movie of 2007.

Flirting With 40 is based on the Jane Porter novel and is described as a lighthearted and poignant story about a divorced mother of two (Locklear) who, while on vacation on the brink of her 40th birthday, enters into an unexpected romance with a much younger man. She soon learns that life can begin at 40.

Flirting With 40 is scheduled to premiere on the Lifetime network in December.
