“Smash” EPs Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are set to produce the telepic, with Cyrus currently meeting with directors.
Miley Cyrus is heading back to the small screen.
The former Disney star, who appeared on the season premiere of Two and a Half Men, is in talks to star as Bonnie in a Lifetime/History telepic, Bonnie & Clyde. The film, the first of its kind to air on both AETN networks, is being produced by Smash EPs Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, who are set up at Sony Pictures TV. Cyrus is said to be meeting with directors.
The move follows a growing push by A&E Networks president of entertainment and media Nancy Dubuc to bet big on big names and established titles in the scripted space. Later this fall, Lifetime will roll out Liz & Dick, starring another tabloid-friendly former child star Lindsay Lohan.
Cyrus is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Edelstein Laird; Meron and Zadan, who recently signed on to produce the Academy Awards, are repped by CAA and Morris Yorn.
