Girls Trip writer Tracy Oliver has been tapped to write the upcoming TV series First Wives Club, a half-hour TV series based on the 1996 Paramount Pictures movie.

The 1996 film starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler, and Goldie Hawn. The series will be based in New York City, and will follow a group of women who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood- and of course a little revenge.

The cast for the reboot has yet to be announced; however, can you imagine First Wives Club starring the cast of Girls Trip with Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Queen Latifah, and Tiffany Haddish? How amazing would that be!?

Oliver was the writer of Barbershop: The Next Cut, wrote, produced and starred in The Misadventures Of Awkward Black Girl, and was the writer of the critically acclaimed comedy Girls Trip for Universal Pictures where she became the first African-American female screenwriter to write a film that crossed the $100 million mark at the domestic box office. She is currently developing the Misty Copeland dance drama for 2oth Century Fox Television, and is writing the film adaption of Nicola Yoon’s best selling YA novel, The Sun Is Also A Star.
