We can not say that we would not come. A limited TV series, inspired by the college admission scandal, is in the works, reports Variety. Annapurna Television has accepted the rights for for Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz & # 39; s forthcoming book on the scandal. The book of the two reporters of the Wall Street Journal is published in the imprint of Penguin Random House.
Dozens of wealthy parents were charged with participating in the program, which paid money (up to $ 6.5 million in one case) to gain access to elite universities such as Stanford, Georgetown, and the University of Southern California guarantee. Including the actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.
Huffman and Loughlin are two of the most famous individuals involved in the corruption. Huffman has pleaded guilty and is waiting for the conviction. Loughlin and her husband designer Mossimo Giannulli have not pleaded guilty.
What we know so far about the show
The television program is still at a very early stage, although we know that D.V. DeVincentis, who The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, will write the screenplay. But the book on which the show will be based has not even been published, and the ultimate fate of Loughlin, Huffman and the other concerned parents is still in the air. This means that it will probably take some time for this juicy drama to be seen on the small screen. Still, we're wondering who could play Loughlin and Huffman in a high caliber series.
Who should play Lori Loughlin?
The commentators at TVLine had some ideas on who might play Loughlin, who previously played in Hallmark's When Calls the Heart and Garage Sale Mysteries . One suggested Hallmark Channel regulars like Kellie Martin or Kimberly Williams for the new show. The Martin proposal is not much of a surprise – her name was also cited by fans as a potential replacement for Loughlin on When Calls the Heart (Floating Heart).
Commentators also suggested Kristin Davis, Kim Delaney and Page Turco as women who could be cast as Loughlin. Another thought that Connie Britton was right. Britton appeared as Faye Resnick in The People vs.. O.J. Simpson and was recently featured in another drama for True Crime, Dirty John. She seems to be the perfect person to play a rich, Southern California woman eager to take her children to a top college.
In a March article, a writer suggested to Oprah Candace Cameron Bure as a possible Loughlin representative if anyone had ever made a film about the scandal. But Bure has publicly said she supports her and "prays" for her co-star Fuller House so it's unlikely that she would sign herself to portray her friend in a probably less beautiful-as flattering light.
Another person who could take over the role of Loughlin? Stephanie Bennett, who played the actress in 2015's Lifetime's The Unauthorized Full House .
Of course, there are people who think Loughlin would be the perfect candidate to play themselves. She was released from both Fuller House and her Hallmark gigs, so she definitely needs the work. If only there was no good chance that the 54-year-old actress would be behind bars at the start of production.
