The First Wives Club adaptation (second adaptation) has cast its three wives. The 10-episode series, which is based on Olivia Goldsmith’s novel, is written by Girls Trip co-writer Tracy Oliver and will star Ryan Michelle Bathe, Jill Scott, and Michelle Buteau. Remake/reboot fatigue be dammed I am super excited for this women’s revenge adaptation! And, yes, You Don’t Own Me is stuck in my head now.
