Wendy Williams’ version of her life story is coming to the small screen.
Lifetime released the trailer for the upcoming Wendy Williams biopic, ‘Wendy Williams: The Movie’ and it looks like it’ll showcase everything — including Wendy’s rise to fame, issues with addiction and the demise of her marriage to Kevin Hunter.
Wendy is an executive producer on the biopic, which stars Ciera Payton (The Oval, She’s Gotta Have It) and Morocco Omari (P-Valley, Empire).
The script was written by Leigh Davenport (Run the World, Boomerang) and Scarlett Lacey (Magnum P.I., The Royals), and the TV movie was directed by Darren Grant (The Chi, God Friended Me).
“Before I had you, I had me, and not you, nor anyone else has the power to take away my gifts!” Payton’s Williams yells in the trailer, before declaring she’ll “turn this city out.”
Watch the trailer below.
