A 'First Wives Club' TV Reboot Is in the Works

The cast of Girls Trip is, of course, too famous as a unit to do TV, but can you imagine First Wives Club starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah, and Tiffany Haddish?

Dana Tuinier, VP, development and original programming, Paramount Network and TV Land, will oversee the project for the network. Dedicated fans of the original may gnash their teeth and rend their garments at the thought of anyone fucking with the magic that Goldie, Bette and Diane wrought, but if there's anyone who could pay tribute to its splendor, it's Oliver.

The TV reimagining has been placed in the capable hands of Tracy Oliver, who recently co-wrote the box office smash hit Girl Trip, which earned her the distinction of becoming the first African-American woman to write a movie that grossed over $100 million domestically. The network ultimately passed on that project (which shot a pilot), though the rights to the concept were scooped up by sister station Spike/Paramount. Karen Rosenfelt, who worked on the Twilight saga and The Devil Wears Prada, will executive produce.


Paramount Network (currently Spike) is developing the program after a failed adaptation attempt on TV Land.

In the digital space, she is also known for writing, producing and acting in the comedic webseries The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.
