Sure, okay.

According to Variety, Christina Ricci and Judith Light will co-star in a Lifetime biopic about famous journalist Nellie Bly. Ricci will play Bly, "a groundbreaking 19th century journalist who sought to expose the mistreatment of patients at the notorious Women’s Lunatic Asylum in New York... [Bly] feigned mental illness in order to be institutionalized at the asylum and report on the conditions from the inside. Light will play Matron Grady, the head nurse who tortured her patients into submission. Josh Bowman will play Dr. Josiah." I'm not sure that Lifetime is the network I would have chosen for this project, but props for choosing a more noble subject that V.C. Andrews's Flowers in the Attic, I guess.
