Lifetime’s FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC prequel to star Kelsey Grammer, Max Irons, Paul Wesley, Harry Hamlin!!

So much for the Frasier reboot.

“So much for the Frasier reboot.”

I can easily chew up the scenery in an Attic while consuming it all on Frasier.

Max Irons was said to be an entitled little shit in drama school. He must be seething at having to work for Lifetime.

The Lifetime adaptions of the Flowers in the Attic films were okay. But it was annoying how the second movie cut out a ton of content from the beginning and opened with the doctor's funeral.

Their adaption of Audrina was horribly butchered.

I liked the Ruby series

Jemima Rooper, what a face

The Ruby series was well done. Sometimes people need a break from all the hundreds of shitty jealous psycho and daughter in danger movies that Lifetime pumps out every year that all have the same exact plots.

Does Lifetime still do romantic comedies or are those left to Hallmark?

by Anonymousreply 7August 30, 2021 8:08 PM

Jemima Rooper was Elvira to Angie Lansbury's Arcati.

Catherine hooking up with the doctor thrilled my tiny teenage brain. Gutted he was eliminated from the adaptation.

Is there anything homosexual for Max Irons and Callum Kerr to do to each other in this story? I'm not among the FITA cognoscenti.

Kelsey’s latest ABSOLUTE BOMB 💣

Jemima Rooper is good casting. Olivia Foxworth is not supposed to be a raving beauty.

I tried watching some show with Rooper but was to distracted by her horrible haircut and hatchet face. She looks better in that photo but I have a feeling it's only good photography. She has a scooped out face and too strong of a jawline that reminds me of a bulldog.

I've always thought Rooper should have been Louise in a revival of GYPSY.

She was in so many TV shows 10-15 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 15August 31, 2021 6:58 PM

She was George in The Famous Five.

Was she banging DL fave Oliver Chris?

Kelsey Grammer, Max Irons, Paul Wesley, and Harry Hamlin! I'm reminded of the old MGM slogan: More stars than there are in the heavens!

The Lifetime movies of the others were very hit and miss. Some good parts and bad parts. They all felt incredibly rushed to me and would have benefitted by being turned into a miniseries instead. These books are so melodramatic to begin with that when you start speeding the events up to make room for more commercial breaks, these big dramatic scenes stacked up on top of each other, one right after the other, turns everything into ridiculous camp and not the good kind. There's no room to breathe.

Jemima Rooper’s followers were congratulating her on twitter and she responded like she had been cast as Scarlett O’Hara. Does Lifetime pay well?

by Anonymousreply 20September 9, 2021 8:38 PM

She's a Brit. She's glad of the work.

The absolute audacity of Hollywood in thinking that they could ever surpass this pinnacle of cinematic excellence!!

My Sweet Audrina never screened locally. I actually sought out a torrent for it, like this is 2006.

What the fuck is with Lifetime’s obsession with Flowers in the Attic? When I was a little kid in the late 80’s, I remember they would air the version with Kristy Swanson all the damn time (in between episodes of Supermarket Sweep and Attitudes!)

The reason it resonated with me is because my mother loved those Archway Nutty Nougat and Italian Wedding Cake cookies, which resembled the poison cookies from Flowers in the Attic. For a brief period I was terrified of eating them.

I wonder how much the rights cost Lifetime.

by Anonymousreply 25October 22, 2021 5:26 PM

I'm inclined to think Lifetime bought the rights in the 80's for a bargain. That's probably why they keep dusting it off.

[quote] I'm inclined to think Lifetime bought the rights in the 80's for a bargain.

It's almost never happens that someone buys the license of intellectual property permanently. It's always a time sensitive contract where you pay a licensing fee and can do with the property whatever is negotiated in the contract.

I'd rather guess that it's some sort of "friends help their friends" situation where the parties involved know each other and shuffle company money around and some of it lands in their pockets as their well compensated salary for their work in that licensing deal.
