The Flint water crisis called on helping hands from near and far when news broke that for over two years residents of the Michigan city were being supplied water contaminated with lead.

Now, the heartbreaking and devestating stories are set to air in a made-for-TV Lifetime movie.

Entertainment Weekly reports that upcoming project will be based on TIME's February cover story "The Toxic Tap."

7 Facts on Flint's Water Crisis

The drama style documentary will detail how almost 100,000 residents were subjected to lead poisoning as a result of Governor Rick Snyder's approval to switch the city's water source in order to cut costs in April 2014. Nearly 9,000 children were exposed to contamination that has caused irreversible health damages.

Some of Hollywood's stars extended a hand in helping supply residents with clean drinking water, including Detroit native Big Sean, Diddy, Russell Simmons, Aretha Franklin and others.

No news as to when the project will air, but The Wiz Live!, The Sound of Music and Chicago producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are expected to help bring the story to life, along with the TIME's cover story journalist and author Josh Sanburn.
