Lifetime Sets World Premiere Date For All-Black 'Steel Magnolias' Remake

Lifetime has set October 7, at 9pm for the world premiere of its remake of the 1989 tear jerker drama, Steel Magnolias, with an all-African American cast that includes: Queen Latifah (she's also executive producer) as M'Lynn, Alfre Woodard as Ouiser, Phylicia Rashad as Clairee, Jill Scott as Truvy, Adepero Oduye as Annelle and Rashad’s daughter, Condola Rashad as Shelby. 

This all-black reincarnation for Lifetime is directed by Kenny Leon (ABC's A Raisin in The Sun, Broadway's Fences and The Mountaintop), from a script adapted from the 1989 film screenplay by Sally Robinson.

Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children – and hair and nails – all the important topics that bring women together.

Lance GrossTory Kittles and Michael Beasley co-star.
