Cast of Lifetime's STEEL MAGNOLIAS to Guest on ABC's THE VIEW, 10/3

Cast members Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye and Condola Rashad of the highly anticipated Lifetime original movie STEEL MAGNOLIAS will appear on ABC's daytime talk show THE VIEW on Wednesday, October 3. The movie is set to debut on Lifetime Sunday, October 7 at 9pm ET/PT.

Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Queen Latifah stars in and executive produces the film, a television adaptation of the iconic play and 1989 film of the same name, reuniting her with producing duo Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, from the Oscar and Golden Globe winning Chicago and Hairspray.

Directed by Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun), the film will feature Queen Latifah taking on the role of 'M'Lynn' and starring alongside Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashadas 'Clairee,' Independent Spirit Award nominee Adepero Oduye as 'Annelle,' Tony Award nominee Condola Rashadas 'Shelby,' with Grammy winner Jill Scott as 'Truvy' and Golden Globe and multiple Emmy-winner Alfre Woodardas 'Ouiser.'

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, Steel Magnolias is executive produced by Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere (Single Ladies) and Shelby Stone. Leon directs from a script that has been adapted for television by Sally Robinson (Iron Jawed Angels) and is based on the play and screenplay by Robert Harling (The First Wives Club).

Steel Magnolias is also a reunion for Zadan, Meron, Rashad and Leon, who last worked together on the critically acclaimed Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Sony TV movie A Raisin in the Sun, which won numerous NAACP Image Awards, including Outstanding TV Movie, Miniseries, or Dramatic Special and Outstanding Actress in a TV Movie, Miniseries, or Dramatic Special for Phylicia Rashad.

In an updated contemporary version of the beloved stage play and 1989 film, Steel Magnolias chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana. 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 truly unite and celebrate women.
