Consider this show on my MUST WATCH list!!
Now, I know yours truly is usually one to scoff at remakes, however there is some magic within the casting at TV Land.
The network is putting together a remake of the hilarious 'First Wives Club', which of course starred Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn.
And now the magic:
'How I Met Your Mother' and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' alum Alyson Hannigan and Broadway star/'Smash' alum Megan Hilty have been cast in 2 of the 3 female leads!!
Hannigan is set to play "Maggie, an English professor at a university in San Francisco. Once an aspiring poet, she is a bright but frustrated woman who is struggling to put excitement back into her flagging marriage. When her old college friend dies, she is galvanized to finally make changes, starting with leaving her husband and tackling life with a renewed sense of adventure". This puts her in the role that Diane Keaton similarly delivered. Hilty on the other hand:
"Kim, once a very successful actress who has “aged out” of Hollywood. Needy and vulnerable, she works hard at staying fit and gorgeous, still hoping for that breakout role, while doing cheesy commercials. Divorced, with an 8-year-old son, Kim is happy to reconnect with old friends". The role is of course, reminiscent of Hawn's.
No word on the 3rd role, taken from Midler's role in the film.
WHO'S EXCITED FOR THIS?!
