Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are getting a Lifetime movie, “College Admissions Scandal”. Though it’s based on their lives, the actresses won’t be playing the parts for obvious reasons.

A television series about the ongoing college admissions scandal is reportedly in the works at Annapurna TV. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company has already optioned rights to Accepted, a forthcoming book about the scandal from Wall Street Journal reporters Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz. The book details the admissions scandal in which 50 people–including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin–were indicted for rigging exams and paying bribes to get their kids admitted to prestigious universities. Emmy winner D.V. DeVincentis (The People v. O.J. Simpson, High Fidelity) has signed on to adapt the book as a limited series, but no outlet is attached yet. #varistyblues #collegeadmissionscandal #felicityhoffman #loriloughlin

According to the press release, the film, which is tentatively titled “College Admissions Scandal”, focuses “on the story that captivated a nation where over 50 privileged and elite individuals from across the country were exposed for criminally conspiring to influence the undergraduate admissions decisions at some of America’s top schools.”

As reported in ET online, Lori Loughlin, Lifetime’s darling, is wondering if she made the wrong decision by pleading not guilty.

“She is trying to live a normal everyday life. To take this time to stay strong but it isn’t easy. Lori doesn’t have the support she once had. She is feeling a “fall from grace” having had a persona as a wholesome mom and now being seen as a pariah,” the source said. 

As for Felicity Huffman, she got a break, at least from her Netflix coworkers. “Nobody is perfect in this world,” Patricia Arquette, who appears alongside Huffman in “Otherhood,” told the Associated Press.“I do think she’s genuinely sorry.” We are sure she is sorry, but we have no idea if she feels sorry for being caught or cheating the system.

Unlike Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin is working on fixing the relationships with her daughter and waiting for a trial. Her punishment so far is that she’s kicked out of Hallmark and “Fuller House”. The real punishment will probably come in the form of jail time.

“College Admissions Scandal” will be directed by Adam Salky from a script by Stephen Tolkin. Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman won’t be named, but it’s all pretty clear. Not like Lifetime hasn’t done this with million other movies. Change the names, but keep it so clear, that you can recognize the case from the space.

Felicity’s faith will be clear in September, while Loughlin’s case is now in the hands of the lawyers and the State. So long, Aunt Becky…
