Broadway Stars Megan Hilty & Jessie Mueller to Play Musical Legends in Upcoming Lifetime Movie

Megan Hilty and Jessie Mueller are set to star in the upcoming Lifetime original movie Patsy & Loretta, based on the two country legends.

Hilty will be playing Patsy Cline while Mueller will take on the role of Loretta Lynn.

The project will shoot in Nashville and filming begins later this month. The movie will debut on Lifetime in late 2019, according to TVLine.

Here is the film’s official synopsis: “When they first met, Patsy (Hilty) was already one of the biggest stars in country music while Loretta (Mueller) was just a coal miner’s daughter, starting off with little to her name but a $17 guitar. Instead of seeing Loretta as competition, Patsy took Loretta under her wings to help her make it in Nashville. Soon, they became close friends, touring together, bonding over their husband troubles and commiserating on being females in the male-dominated music business. Then in 1963, the country music community was struck with a tragedy when at just age 30, Patsy died in a plane crash. Despite the devastating loss of her friend, Loretta continued on in the industry and is today, known as the First Lady of Country Music. To this day, Loretta remains grateful to Patsy for her mentorship and above all, friendship, as the country music trailblazer that paved the way for Loretta.”

Megan is best known for her role on NBC’s Smash while Jessie won a Tony for her work in Beautiful.
