Lifetime to premiere a film that played at Cannes? Who could've predicted that? "Grace of Monaco," starring Nicole Kidman, will go straight-to-cable.
Speaking of convergence (albeit of another type), this seems to be a convergence of prestige and pulp.
The Weinstein Company paid $7 million for a film and it's premiering on Lifetime. Nothing ground-breaking (well not too groundbreaking), but I'm just chuckling because a couple of my not-faves/overrated Hollywood players are looking foolish right now. (To be clear that's Weinstein and Kidman because Lifetime has a special place in my heart).
