THR informs me that NBC has picked up a script based on Jacqueline Susann's soaptastic 1966 melodrama Valley of the Dolls*. The project will be written, directed, and produced by Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels, and is apparently more inspired by the 1967 film adaptation of Susann's story than the original novel. I've never seen the movie, but I have read the massively terrible book, and I don't care how good this Daniels dude is: there is nothing that can save that material.
