Renee Zelwegger is developing a drama series for Lifetime that’s loosely based on her “journey from small-town Texas to Hollywood stardom,” the network announced today. Cinnamon Girl would be set in Los Angeles in the late ’60s/early ’70s, and would chronicle the adventures of four young women who are coming of age at the time of cultural and political revolution.

The project — which is being created by Zellweger and Anthony Tambakis (Warrior), and exec produced by Zellweger, Tambakis, and Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) — reunites the Academy Award winner with Lifetime; in 2008, she served as executive producer of the movie Living Proof, about the UCLA oncologist who was instrumental in the development of the breast cancer drug Herceptin.
