Lifetime announced Tuesday that they will be adapting the infamous story of Loughlin and Huffman’s college admissions scandal into a 2-hour movie called … “College Admissions Scandal.”
According to Lifetime, “College Admissions Scandal will follow two wealthy mothers who share an obsession with getting their teenagers into the best possible college.”
We’re told the two mothers are not meant to be Loughlin and Huffman … but obviously they are based off their real-life counterparts.
The Lifetime movie even features a “charismatic” college admissions consultant named, Rick Singer, which also happens to be the name of the mastermind behind the actual criminal ordeal.
Even though many would think Loughlin and Huffman would be a shoe-in, especially since they don’t have any projects lined up, sources close to production tell us the two women are not being considered for the starring roles.
Our source stressed the fictitious storyline will center on two wealthy families wrapped up in the scandal, but are not necessarily meant to be Loughlin or Huffman.
We’re told casting is already underway for the project.
Not including Loughlin or Huffman may be for the best, as the former “Fuller House” star may be busy serving out a sentence if she’s convicted of paying $500,000 in bribes to get her two daughters into USC under false circumstances.
“College Admissions Scandal” is produced by Varsity Films Inc. The film is executive produced by Gail Katz and Howard Braunstein. Adam Salky will direct from a script by Stephen Tolkin.
