Lifetime has tapped Jewel to star in The June Carter Cash Story, a biopic about the late country singer, based on son John Carter Cash’s memoir Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash.
Richard Friedenberg (Lifetime’s Of Two Minds) will adapt, with Southland‘s Allison Anders on board to direct. John Carter Cash, Steven Michaels and Jonathan Koch will executive produce.
American Horror Story‘s Matt Ross will play Johnny Cash in the story that tracks June’s life from her childhood in Virginia through her rise to fame as she performed with icons like Elvis Presley and her relationship with the Man in Black.
Filming is set to begin in the summer in Atlanta for a premiere this year. Read more at
