The Oscar-winner has signed on to develop and produce a late 1960s/early 1970s drama series titled “Cinnamon Girl.”

Lifetime’s description of the show:

“Set in one of the most turbulent, creative and golden times in the history of American popular culture, the Los Angeles music and movie scenes of the late 1960s/early 1970s, ‘Cinnamon Girl’ is the story of four girls — Cassie, Lola, Penny and Lou — coming of age during a revolution.  Created by Zellweger and Anthony Tambakis (Warrior), the project will explore the characters’ lives at the crossroads of the era’s political, artistic, social and sexual rebellions.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Nancy Dubuc and Rob Sharenow, who share our enthusiasm and creative intentions, and we believe the timing is perfect for ‘Cinnamon Girl’ to have found a home at Lifetime during this transformative juncture at the network,” says Zellweger. “We’re really looking forward to making Cinnamon Girl come to life as part of their campaign to expand audience expectations and redefine what it means to be a Lifetime show.”

There is no word yet as to when “Cinnamon Girl” will premiere. What do you think, are you excited?
