In March it was announced that several of Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars would be joining forces to remake the 1989 classic film Steel Magnolias for Lifetime.

Today, we’re getting our first glimpse at the film starring Queen Latifah (M’Lynn), Phylicia Rashad (Clairee), Jill Scott (Truvy),  Alfre Woodard (Ouiser), Condola Rashad (Shelby) and Adepero Oduye (Annelle).

The story follows the close relationship of six women through their ups and downs. Kenny Leon directed the TV movie which is set to air later this year on Lifetime.

Are you excited to see how Hollywood’s top Black actresses will interpret the film?
