Still high on the success of its “Flowers in the Attic” franchise, Lifetime has given a greenlight to V.C. Andrews’ standalone novel, “My Sweet Audrina,” a network representative told TheWrap.
The book follows a family that’s as twisted and mysterious as the Foxworths, with seven-year-old Audrina at the center. As she comes of age, she’s often compared to her late older sister, who was also named Audrina and who perished years earlier, not knowing everyone is keeping a dangerous secret from her.
The adaptation is now casting, while no airdate has been set yet.
Scarlett Lacey is writing the adaptation, while Dan Angel and Jane Startz, who are also executive producing “Seeds of Yesterday” and “If There Be Thorns” for the network, are executive producers on “Audrina.”
The third installment of the “Flowers in the Attic” saga, “If There Be Thorns” will premiere on Lifetime on Sunday, Apr 5, while the fourth, “Seeds of Yesterday,” will follow a week later on April 12.
