Feb. 22 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon is executive producing Kin, a multigenerational family drama from Queen Sugar and Constantine writer Davita Scarlett.
No casting or premiere date have been announced.
Scarlett developed the project with Chester Jones III, who wrote, directed and starred in the 2009 film Hey Diddle Diddle.
"Davita has written a script that is utterly original, complex and incredibly nuanced. She deftly explores issues around identity and the secrets family members keep to protect themselves and one another," Witherspoon said in a statement. "I'm so excited to team up with Starz to bring these strong, memorable female characters to life on screen."
She is producing Americanized, an ABC Studios comedy adaptation of Sara Saedi's memoir of the same name.
