This girl is on fire right now. She has a new boyfriend, she will be hosting the CMA Awards alongside Darius Rucker, and now she will be starring in an adaptation of Fried Green Tomatoes.
It will be an hour-long episodic drama and it will be a modernization of the novel and movie that will explore the lives of the descendants from the original work.
McEntire will play a present-day Idgie Threadgoode, who must wrestle with a changed town, estranged daughter, faltering cafe and a life-changing secret when she returns to the Whistle Stop after a decade away.
Let’s hope Kathy Bates makes an appearance as well!
