McEntire Attached To Fried Green Tomatoes

A Reba McEntire-led series based on Fried Green Tomatoes is in development at NBC. The project is described as a "modernization of the novel and movie that explores the lives of descendants from the original work. When present-day Idgie Threadgoode (McEntire) returns to Whistle Stop after a decade away, she must wrestle with a changed town, estranged daughter, faltering cafe and life-changing secret." McEntire will also executive produce alongside Act III Productions' Norman Lear – who worked on the original movie – and Brent Miller; the novel's author and screenplay co-writer Fannie Flagg; and Jennifer Cecil, who will also take on writing duties.
