Well, this will likely not please Barbara Walters. VH1 has just announced that it has greenlit a scripted series based on Star Jones’ book Satan’s Sisters about the behind-the-scenes drama of an all-female daytime talk show called The Lunch Hour.
Jones, of course, has experience in the daytime TV arena: she co-hosted ABC’s The View from 1997 to 2006 after which her contract was not renewed. Says Jones in a statement, “I’m so excited that Satan’s Sisters, which was such a fun book to write, is finally coming to the small screen. I would be lying if I said that Satan’s Sisters wasn’t influenced by the soap opera life of daytime TV but it is a work of fiction. All the characters are inspired, in parts, by someone I’ve worked with, worked for, interviewed, was interviewed by and/or even prosecuted.”
The subtly titled Satan’s Sisters will premiere on VH1 in 2017.
