Tennis star, Serena Williams is set to executive-produce an original movie for Lifetime.
Tentatively titled Sister Dance, the film is inspired by an annual dance-off competition Serena hosts with her sister, Venus. In the film, two sisters become rivals once they pit themselves against each other and their respective dance teams in an epic dance battle.
Also, it has been announced that Janet Jackson will executive produce the story of 1920’s New York City mobster, Queenie for the same network.
Queenie, born Stephanie St. Clair (1886–1969), was a mob boss who ran numerous criminal enterprises in Harlem, NYC in the early part of the 20th century. She even bumped heads with the then Italian mafia and managed to stay entirely independent. In Bill Duke’s gangland crime drama Hoodlum (1997) she was played by Cicely Tyson.
