Vanessa Williams is headed for VH1.
The actress has been tapped to star in VH1 scripted drama Satan’s Sisters, based on the 2011 Star Jones book of the same name.
The book and series follow the antics at a long-running popular ladies talk show where “alliances are forged, careers are made and bridges are burned.”
Williams will star as Maxine, the creator and host of The Lunch Hour, the show within the show. The character is described as formidable, powerful and decisive, a person who fears being put out to pasture.
