Lifetime adapting 'The Red Tent' into miniseries starring Minnie Driver, Morena Baccarin, Rebecca Ferguson

Lifetime is the latest network to order Bible-themed programming, announcing a miniseries adaptation of Anita Diamant’s bestselling novel, The Red Tent.

The two-night event stars Minnie Driver (About a Boy), Morena Baccarin (Homeland), Rebecca Ferguson (The White Queen), Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment), Iain Glen (Game of Thrones), and Will Tudor (Game of Thrones) in the expanded saga of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob, who was only briefly mentioned in the Old Testament. Production begins this month in Morocco.

Ferguson plays Dinah, who spends her formative years in her tribe’s red tent, a women-only sanctuary where she learns about her family’s traditions and turmoil. The story recounts her father Jacob’s (Glen) courtship of her mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah, and Bilhah. The tale continues with Dinah’s own experiences with love and a devastating loss that changes the fate of her family.

Winger portrays Rebecca, Jacob’s mother; Tudor stars as Joseph, Dinah’s brother. READ FULL STORY

'About a Boy': Jason Katims, David Walton, and Minnie Driver talk new episodes, upcoming guest stars

When you’re really good at something, it’s easy to have an ego. Jason Katims is really good at taking films, like Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, and turning them into successful shows for NBC.

EW was at a special screening of two upcoming episodes of the series with Katims and stars David Walton and Minnie Driver. The trio talked about exciting guest stars for both FNL and Arrested Development fans, what else to expect for the remainder of the first season, and the creative benefits of working on television versus film.
