'College Admissions Scandal' TV Movie in the Works at Lifetime

The national college admissions scandal is becoming a TV movie.

Lifetime is working on an original movie based on the situation, which has involved celebrities including Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, according to THR on Tuesday (July 23).

The project was announced during Lifetime’s semi-annual meeting with the Television Critics Association. The movie will be out later in 2019, A+E Networks president Rob Sharenow said. Casting for the S-directed film has not yet been revealed.

Here’s a plot summary: “College Admissions Scandal will follow two wealthy mothers who share an obsession with getting their teenagers into the best possible college. When charismatic college admissions consultant Rick Singer offers a side door into the prestigious institutions of their dreams, they willingly partake with visions of coveted acceptance letters in their heads.”

Annapurna TV is also working on a mini-series telling of the event, among other projects in the works.
