Here she comes: Chalke is Lifetime's 'Maneater'
EmptySarah Chalke has signed to star in Lifetime's four-hour miniseries "Maneater," based on Gigi Levangie Grazer's book.
In addition, Timothy Busfield has come aboard to direct the Sony Pictures Television-produced mini, which is being adapted by Suzanne Martin ("Frasier").
"Maneater," airing next year, centers on Clarissa Alpert (Chalke), a shallow thirtysomething socialite in a panic because she's still single. Setting her sights on a Hollywood producer, Clarissa puts into motion a plan to land herself a husband.
Martin and Grazer ("The Starter Wife") are exec producing with 3 Arts' Stephanie Davis. (partialdiff)
