Melanie Griffith to Star in Lifetime Series

Melanie Griffith

What show will you see advertised in commercial breaks during the next season of Project Runway? Potentially, American Housewife, which Deadline reports has Melanie Griffith in negotiations to star. Based on an idea by Griffith's husband Antonio Banderas, the greenlit pilot casts the actress as a mom "who has conversations with her inner voice" while dealing with one child heading to college and one staying behind. Griffith has flirted with television intermittently over the last few years: She was a regular on the short-lived 2005 sitcom Twins, as well as a guest star on Nip/Tuck and, er, Viva Laughlin.
