The Ex Files: A Novel about four women and faith is reportedly in development at Lifetime from executive producers Tracey Edmonds (Soul Food, Jumping the Broom, BET’s Games People Play) and Shaun Robinson (Executive producer of Lifetime’s Seven Deadly Sins movie series with Bishop T.D. Jakes) a source close to the situation tells Shadow And Act.
Shadow And Act reached out to Lifetime for comment. The novel was written by Victoria Christopher Murray.
Being Mary Jane scribe Patrik-Ian Polk has been tapped to write the adaptation. The official description of the novel reads: There are four ways a woman can handle heartbreak: she can fall apart, seek revenge, turn cold, or move on.
In The Ex Files, four women find faith, friendship, and healing under the unlikeliest of circumstances. Kendall, Asia, Vanessa and Sheridan each have an “ex” in their lives.
Whether from a broken marriage, the shocking loss of a loved one, or a shattered bond of trust, the pain is real and the wounds deep. Will they ever heal?
When their pastor asks the foursome to meet weekly for prayer, they can’t imagine they will have anything in common. Then a devastating tragedy strikes and these strangers are forced to reexamine their choices. Will they find true friendship? Or will prayer— and their circle of support—be enough to see them through?
MarVista is the studio. Edmonds Entertainment and RobinHood Productions are the production companies.
