‘First Wives Club’ Reboot to Cast Non-White Actresses for Lead Roles

The Paramount Network has decided to fast-track its reboot of First Wives Club.

The cable network has handed out a 10-episode series order for the reboot. Casting has not yet been announced for the reboot of the 1996 feature that originally starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn though sources say the cable network is looking to make all three leads to be played by non-white actresses.

Production will begin in New York this July for a 2019 debut.
