Lifetime orders three Kim Raver-produced TV movies on Jane Green novels, including one starring Alyssa Milano
The three films will be based on author Jane Green's bestselling novels: Tempting Fate, To Have and To Hold and Family Pictures. Milano will star in Tempting Fate, the first movie to be made. “Jane Green’s novels are addictive, fun, juicy and wise – just like a great Lifetime Movie – so to bring the two genres together is incredibly thrilling,” says Lifetime executive Tanya Lopez. “With Kim set to direct and Alyssa as the star to kick off the first of the series by Jane, it is the perfect trifecta.”

Holly Marie Combs got in a Twitter fight with a Charmed reboot executive producer
The original Charmed star traded barbs with Brad Silberling, who directed the Charmed reboot pilot for The CW, after he said it would've been tough to reunite the original cast. "That's both inaccurate and untrue. But you do you boo," Combs shot back, later adding: "Suck it Brad. Really." Former Charmed star Alyssa Milano also weighed in, tweeting: "I know what is both accurate and true—nothing would make me happier than reuniting with these strong, talented, powerful women." When the Charmed reboot trailer came out last week, Combs told The Huffington Post: "I hope the new show is far better than the marketing, so the true legacy does remain."

Rose McGowan walks back saying Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano is “a lie”
McGowan accused Milano on last night's Nightline of having an ulterior motive with her involvement in the #MeToo movement. “I don’t like her,” McGowan told Nightline. “’Cause I think she’s a lie.” When Nightline tweeted her quote, McGowan responded: “Yeah, I knew this would be the pull quote, but the lie is a system, not an individual.” Meanwhile, Milano issued a statement in support of McGowan. “I am and always have been completely supportive of Rose and admire her bravery and speaking out about her experiences,” she said.

Holly Marie Combs bashes CW’s Charmed reboot and its “feminist” twist: “Don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work”
After initially throwing shade at The CW’s announcement that it had ordered a pilot for a Charmed reboot, Combs offered a lengthier response late Thursday night: “Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work," she tweeted. Referring to her, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty, Combs added: “Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.” On Friday morning, Combs further slammed the revival’s “feminist” twist: “Guess we forgot to do that the first go around. Hmph.”

The CW orders a “fierce, funny, feminist” Charmed reboot pilot
Originally planned as a 1970s-set prequel series to The WB witches drama that launched in 1998, the rebooted Charmed pilot will instead be set in the present day. “This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches,” says The CW. “Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.” A present-day setting, as EW notes, would leave the door open for original Charmed stars Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan to reprise their roles. ALSO: Holly Marie Combs appears to be unhappy with the Charmed reboot.
