This Is A Woman's World! Cher Writing A Mini-Series About Women In Her Family

(Yes, the 'Woman's World' mention had to be in there!) Cher's only just put to the small screen a tribute to her mother in the form of May 6th's Lifetime documentary 'Dear Mom, Love Cher'. But already the 66-year-old is hoping to showcase the life of her mother, and other women in her family, on a TV mini-series.

Cher revealed on Twitter that she is currently writing a script about four generations of women in her family; "I'm writing a film about the four generations of women starting from my great grandmother, to my grandmother, to my mother. It ends with Mom deciding to have me. They were hardcore, beautiful and lived lives that none of us could even imagine! It's a saga of strong country women. It will make a great mini-series."

She added, "Some reviews said that 'Dear Mom, Love Cher' was too light and Glossy! It was meant to lift Moms up! If dark equals gravitas, then our other-side is practically Dickensian! They'll be happy with the mini-series as it's practically 'I can't see my hands' pitchblende dark. We're so dark that we throw shade without even trying."

On Twitter, Cher also hinted that "good" things are ahead; "Must go! I have business meeting about (good) things that must be planned for well in advance." Thanks for the suspense Cher!
