Wendy Williams has signed with Lifetime to executive produce her own biopic.
The media corporation announced it is developing a biopic based on the talk-show host, which will reveal the “highs and lows she has experienced throughout her show.”
Production is set to begin on the biopic this fall from Will Packer Media and debut in 2020.
“The authorized project provides a revealing look at Wendy’s journey, from her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show,” according to a press release.
Leigh Davenport will write the script. The biopic will also come with a documentary based on Williams’ life, produced by Entertainment One (eOne) and Creature Films.
Wendy is in the middle of a divorce from her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter and has also claimed that she may have found love again in the hands of another man.
“It helps that he’s a doctor,” she hinted during her show as the audience began cheering wildly. “I am not going to say one more word. You’re not going to blow this for me. But he’s been married, his kids are in their 20s. And yes, he’s black. I know you’re wondering.”
She also cut ties with her ex professionally; he was removed as executive producer of The Wendy Williams Show, and she dissolved The Hunter Foundation, the non-profit organization the couple founded in 2014.
