The Lifetime network is focusing on the friendship between the late Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn with its new movie, called Patsy & Loretta. Hit TV show Nashville creator Callie Khouri is directing the movie, which is currently in production.
Smash actress Megan Hilty will play Patsy, while Broadway star Jessie Mueller takes on the role of Loretta. Kyle Schmid (Six) will play Patsy’s second husband, Charlie Dick, and Joe Tippett (Rise) will portray Lynn’s husband Doolittle “Mooney” Lynn.
Patsy's daughter, Julie Fudge, and Loretta's daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell, will serve as co-producers on the project. The movie is expected to air on Lifetime later this year.
