(washingtonpost.com) - Kirstie Alley is set to star in the Lifetime original movie "And She Was," which will premiere in the summer.
"And She Was" is described as a satiric comedy about a middle-aged screenwriter (Alley) who learns that she is all washed up in Hollywood because she is considered too old. She enlists the help of her twentysomething nephew (Eric Christian Olsen) who passes himself off as the writer of her scripts. But when he falls in love with a studio executive, her plan to reveal that she actually wrote the scripts is jeopardized.
Alley will also serve as an executive producer.
Lifetime also said that Willow Bay will host "Spotlight 25," an hourlong special about 25-year-old women. It features commentary from singer-actress Jennifer Hudson ("Dreamgirls"), among others, on topics including career, dating, family and financial issues. The special airs at 8 p.m. March 26, during National Women's History Month.
