Talk –show host Wendy Williams is stepping out of the hosting seat and into the producer’s chair to present Star Jones’ Satan Sisters: The Movie.
According to TV Buzz, Williams is teaming up with former Motown television, film and music producer Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones to create television and movies under the auspices of “Wendy Williams Presents.” The first film to be made in this new partnership is Jones’ novel about a panel of talk show hosts. Williams said this of her new deal with de Passe:
“de Passe Jones Entertainment has a proven track record of success as it pertains to television movies and mini-series,” Williams said in a release. “This partnership makes great sense to Wendy Williams Productions and our entry into the world of filmed entertainment. The credentials of Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones speak for themselves. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship with de Passe Jones Entertainment and adding to their stellar and lengthy string of highly successful films.”
A few months back Jones mentioned on Williams’ daytime talk-show her desire to turn the novel into a movie and even hinted at who she would like to see cast in roles. If Jones has her way, she would also like to see the movie turned in a television series. No word yet on when production starts.
Kudos to the “Queen of All Media” for taking her brand and celebrity to the next level!
