A press release from Lifetime reads:

The authorized project provides a revealing look at Wendy’s journey, from her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show. Despite all the naysayers and obstacles Wendy encountered throughout her life, her strength and determination have allowed her to thrive.

Will Packer Media is the production company behind Williams' biopic. Leigh Davenport is writing the script. The movie will be accompanied by an Entertainment One and Creature Films produced documentary on the New Jersey-raised television star.

Surviving Jeffrey Epstein will also be part of the cable channel's investigative doc lineup. Plus, a new two-hour movie will cover the College Admissions Scandal.
