On Sunday, October 7th, Liftetime Network is premiering the highly anticipated remake, “Steel Magnolias!” This version features an all African-American, star-studded cast including Queen Latifah, Alfre Woodard, Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, and Condola Rashad.

If you don’t know already, the film is based on a 1989 comedy-drama that centers on the lives of six women in a Louisiana parish. The film was co-directed by Queen Latifah along with Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Shelby Stone, and Shakim Compere of “Single Ladies” fame. This project also reunited the directors along with Phylicia Rashad, who collaborated on the critically acclaimed TV movie “A Raisin in the Sun.”

You can watch this exciting new feature at 9 PM Eastern Time on the Lifetime Network!
