[via press release from Lifetime]

LIFETIME HAS GREENLIT TWO NEW ORIGINAL MOVIES BASED ON BELOVED NOVELS

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: ATLANTA FEATURES TIFFANY HINES, JUAN ANTONIO, JACKÉE HARRY, REGINALD VELJOHNSON, KESHIA KNIGHT PULLIAM AND KELLEE STEWART

VERY VALENTINE STARS KELEN COLEMAN AND JACQUELINE BISSET BASED ON ADRIANA TRIGANI'S BEST-SELLING BOOK

November 5, 2019 - Lifetime is set to adapt a pair of beloved book titles for two new original movies, Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta, featuring an all-African American cast for a modern take of the Jane Austen classic and New York Time's best-selling author Adriana Trigiani's Very Valentine starring Kelen Coleman and Jacqueline Bisset, from Sony Pictures Television. Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta and Very Valentine join Lifetime's growing roster of movies developed from popular novels including a trilogy of films from Jane Green and five movies based on VC Andrew's Casteel series set to debut in 2019 on Lifetime.

Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta

In a contemporary adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta follows Reverend Bennet (Reginald VelJohnson, Family Matters), a pastor of a prominent southern Baptist church and his wife Mrs. Bennet (Jackée Harry, Sister, Sister), who is the author of a self-help book on how to find the perfect husband. Needless to say, Mrs. Bennet is less than thrilled that all five of their daughters, Lizzie (Tiffany Hines, Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart), Jane (Raney Branch, Being Mary Jane), Mary (Brittney Level, The Purge), Lydia (Reginae Carter, Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta) and Kitty (Alexia Bailey), are still single. When the very eligible Will Darcy (Juan Antonio, Empire) arrives in town, Mrs. Bennet sets her sights on the handsome bachelor for daughter Lizzie, leading to a modern-day, comedic take on themes familiar to fans of the novel.

Kellee Stewart (Love by the 10th Date) portrays Lizzie's best friend Charlotte, Victoria Rowell (The Young and the Restless) stars as Will's aunt Catherine and Keshia Knight Pulliam (Jingle Belle) plays snarky socialite Caroline who loathes the idea of Darcy and Lizzie's union.

Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta is produced by Big Dreams Entertainment and Swirl Films. Executive producers are Leslie Greif, Naomi Despres (Kill the Messenger) and Tracy McMillan (Satisfaction). Eric Tomosunas and Alex Kerr produce while Rhonda Baraka (Pastor Brown) directs from a script written by Tracy McMillan.

Very Valentine

Based on a novel by best-selling author Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine tells the story of the Angelini Shoe Company, one of the last family-owned businesses in Greenwich Village that has been making exquisite wedding shoes since 1903, but now teeters on the brink of financial collapse. To save the family business from ruin, Valentine Roncalli (Kelen Coleman, Big Little Lies, The Newsroom) - apprentice to and granddaughter of master artisan Teodora Angelini (Jacqueline Bisset, Nip/Tuck) - must bring the family's old-world craftsmanship into the 21st century. Juggling unpredictable love lives, duty to their family, and a design challenge presented by a prestigious department store, Valentine and Teodora are on a quest to build a pair of glorious shoes sure to beat their rivals. Also, in the course of discovering her true artistic voice, Valentine discovers true love as she turns her life and the business upside down in ways she never expected.

Based on the novel of the same name and part of the 'Valentine Trilogy' Book Series by New York Times best-selling author Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine is produced in Bulgaria by Judith Verno and Sony Pictures Television. Larry Sanitsky serves as executive producer. Menhaj Huda (Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance) directs from a script written by Adriana Trigiani.
