Lifetime Orders Two Drama Pilots

July 20, 2012 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 0 Comments


On the heels of upping former ABC pilot Devious Minds to series, Lifetime has ordered two drama pilots: The Secret Lives of Wives (working title) and Witches of East End for 2013. Inspired by the book by Iris Krasnow, The Secret Lives of Wives will focus on the marriages of four different women, and the ultimate challenge of emotional and sexual longevity. Jill Gordon (Five), who wrote the pilot, will also executive produce with Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes) and Jennifer Gwartz (Veronica Mars); Krasnow will serve as a producer. The Secret Lives of Wives will be produced by Lin Pictures in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Witches of East End, based on Melissa de la Cruz’s best-selling novel, will center on the adventures of a mother and her two adult daughters in Long Island, who unknowingly are their family’s next generation of witches. When one of the daughters becomes engaged, a series of events forces her mother to admit to her daughters they are, in fact, powerful and immortal witches. Maggie Friedman (Dawson’s Creek, Jack and Bobby and Eastwick) wrote and will executive produce Witches of East End, which will be produced by Fox 21. Erwin Stoff (The Matrix) of 3 Arts Entertainment will also executive produce.
