Cinderella never goes out of style, and if Disney is bringing a completely revised version to the screens (Sneakerentola is coming to Disney +), Jennifer Lopez will produce one in serial format inspired by the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.
You got it right: Cinderella will once again hit the screens, this time in the form of a miniseries produced by none other than Jennifer Lopez.
The version we will see on TV, courtesy of Skydance Television, Concord Originals and Nuyorican Productions (Lopez’s production company) will be inspired by Rodgers & Hammerstein, whose numerous iterations of history (between stage and television) have made history. The project will be written and produced by Rachel Shukert (GLOW, The Baby-Sitters Club), who will also be the showrunner.
In addition to the aforementioned Lopez and Shukert, producers include Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina, Bill Bost, Dana Goldberg, David Ellison, Scott Pascucci and Sophia Dilley.
