Lifetime to Develop CLEOPATRA Miniseries

Related: CLEOPATRA, LIFETIME

Because Lindsay Lohan's reenactment of Liz Taylor's performance wasn't enough in LIZ & DICK, Lifetime is set to develop a four-part miniseries based upon the infamous Egyptian queen, Cleopatra.

CLEOPATRA will follow the life and suicide (according to some historians she did it by injecting snake venom into her blood) of the historical beauty and last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, exploring her rocky relationships with Julius Casesar and Mark Antony.

The project, a deviation from the standard Lifetime fare, comes from NUMBERS' Robert Port. Michael Goldstein and Mike Larkin are set to produce. As of now, no director or cast is attached to the just-announced project.

For the full report, head on over to Deadline.

Lifetime is committed to offering the highest quality entertainment and information programming, andadvocating a wide range of issues affecting women and their families. In 2012, as a result of its aggressive triple threat programming strategy doubling its amount of original programming spanning scripted dramas, reality series and movies, Lifetime posted its strongest year-on-year growth among the key demographics in 10+ years, while also reaching its youngest median age in 16 years. Lifetime Television(R), LMN(R), Lifetime Real Women(R) and Lifetime Digital(TM) are part of Lifetime Entertainment Services, LLC, a subsidiary of A+E Networks. A+E Networks is a joint venture of the Disney-ABC Television Group and Hearst Corporation.
