Reginae Carter, Jackee Harry, Tiffany Hines, Reginald VelJohnson & Raney Branch are to star in a retelling of the ‘Pride & Prejudice‘ story.
Exciting news below…
‘Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta’ is a remake of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride & Prejudice’ and is being built by Lifetime as part of their quest to up their levels on a scripted content front.
Jackee Harry (Sister, Sister) as preacher’s wife Mrs. Bennet, “who has just written a book about the importance of marriage in the African-American community.” Because of this, she isn’t pleased that her own daughters — Lizzie (Hit the Floor‘s Tiffany Hines, Jane (Being Mary Jane‘s Raney Branch), Mary (The Purge‘s Brittney Level), Lydia (Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s Reginae Carter) and Kitty (newcomer Alexia Bailey) — remain single. That’s when Mrs. Bennet happens upon the oh-so-eligible Will Darcy (Empire‘s Juan Antonio), whom she tries to match with eldest daughter Lizzie. Reginald VelJohnson (Family Matters) also stars as family patriarch Reverend Bennet.
We look forward to seeing how they rework the story!
Yet to see its 1995 TV adaptation?
