Exciting news for fans of this classic 60's novel!
We've just learned that Precious director Lee Daniels will be writing/directing an upcoming Valley of the Dolls TV series, which has been purchased by NBC.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, here's the storyline for Valley:
"[Valley] spans over two decades to chronicle the lives, career highs and ultimate self-destruction of three female best friends: Anne Welles, who works at a Broadway talent agency; Neely O’Hara, a vaudeville star; and Jennifer North, a showgirl. The title of the book refers to a slang for sleeping pills that the three women eventually become dependent on."
Previously, Valley was created as a movie by 20th Century Fox in 1967, a mini-series by Fox TV in 1981, and a late-night soap in 1994.
We're not sure exactly HOW excited we are for this one, but it should be interesting to see Lee Daniels' take on this project! The guy made Precious, after all, which was SO intense!
Are U a fan of Valley of the Dolls? Are U excited that it's coming back to TV???
