Courtesy of Lifetime: In an updated contemporary version of the beloved stage play and 1989 film, “Steel Magnolias” chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana. Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children – and hair and nails – all the important topics that truly unite and celebrate women.

Golden Globe® and Grammy® Award winner and Academy Award® nominee Queen Latifah stars in and executive produces the film, reuniting her with producing duo Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, from the Oscar and Golden Globe winning “Chicago” and “Hairspray.” Directed by Kenny Leon (A Raisin in the Sun), the film features Queen Latifah as ‘M’Lynn’, Tony® Award winner Phylicia Rashad as ‘Clairee,’ Independent Spirit Award nominee Adepero Oduye as ‘Annelle,’ Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad as ‘Shelby,’ Grammy winner Jill Scott as ‘Truvy’ and Golden Globe and multiple Emmy®- winner Alfre Woodard as ‘Ouiser.’

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, “Steel Magnolias” is executive produced by Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere (“Single Ladies”) and Shelby Stone. Leon directs from a script that has been adapted for television by Sally Robinson (“Iron Jawed Angels”) and is based on the play and screenplay by Robert Harling (“The First Wives Club”). “Steel Magnolias” is also a reunion for Zadan, Meron, Rashad and Leon, who last worked together on the critically acclaimed Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Sony TV movie “A Raisin in the Sun”, which won numerous NAACP Image Awards, including Outstanding TV Movie, Miniseries, or Dramatic Special and Outstanding Actress in a TV Movie, Miniseries, or Dramatic Special for Phylicia Rashad.

    I loved the original Steel Magnolias……but its just something about seeing the movie with a phenomenal black cast….all the black actress power hitters, plus two new comers…I absolutely loved it. It stayed sooo close to the original. Thats what made it…i hate when something is re-made and “you can’t make heads or tails out of it”….;)
