Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias reboot will debut this Sunday as scheduled after a temporary restraining order sought by a producer on the original movie was thrown out. A Los Angeles judge made the decision after a hearing this morning. White, executive producer on the 1989 feature, earlier this week filed a lawsuit against the remake’s producer, Sony Pictures Television, Lifetime and the network’s parent A+E Television Networks, along with an injunction request to block the TV movie from airing. The suit, in which she is charging breach of contract, good faith and fair dealing, seeking screen credits, fees, and a portion of net profits, is still ongoing. Read the lawsuit here. Lifetime’s remake of the classic feature film stars Queen Latifah, Alfre Woodard, Phylicia Rashad, Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye and Rashad’s daughter Condola Rashad star. It is executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
