Toni Braxton is set to unbreak her heart for a Lifetime movie about her life.

The network has given a greenlight to Un-Break My Heart, which is based on her 2014 memoir of the same title. This “authorized life story” will unspool the tale of the Grammy Award-winning R&B singer who has battled through lupus, financial woes, and divorce while raising a son with autism. The network bills Un-Break My Heart as “the never-before-told story of the measures Braxton took to make herself and her family whole again, serving as an inspiration to people around the world.”

Braxton, who stars in the WE tv’s reality series Braxton Family Values, is among the executive producers of the film, who also include Craig Baumgarten, executive producer of Lifetime’s Twist of Faith, an interfaith love story that she also starred in. Un-Break My Heart, which goes into production later this year, is being written by Susan McMartin (Mom) and directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall (Abducted: The Carlina White Story).
