Ronnie Lorenzo, "one of the original owners of the Stonewall Inn, the epicenter of the 1969 Stonewall riots that sparked America's gay rights movement," is aboard as a consulting producer. Shankman's Warner Horizon Television-based Offspring Entertainment producing partner Jennifer Gibgot will also serve as an executive producer. (Deadline.com)
