Wendy Williams is producing her own biopic for the Lifetime network.
When it comes to getting bags, the gossip queen won’t stop for anything. Despite Williams’ recent breakup with longtime husband #KevinHunter, the talk show host has been silently and swiftly making business moves. Page Six reports the 55-year-old has teamed up with film and TV producer #WillPacker to create her own biopic for #Lifetime.
Lifetime made the announcement this past Tuesday, saying that it would be developing a biopic based on Williams’ life which will reveal the “highs and lows she has experienced throughout her show.” The project’s about “her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show,” a release said. “Boomerang” writer Leigh Davenport is penning the script.
Williams will act as executive producer, and the project will begin production this fall from Will Packer Media. The untitled biopic will debut in 2020. PEOPLE reports, Leigh Davenport will write the script. The biopic will also come with a documentary based on Williams’ life, produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Creature Films.
