A movie is getting made about the US college admissions scandal involving Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman

It doesn’t take long for a big Hollywood scandal to surface before a movie about it is in the works. Following the arrests of  Fuller House’s Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives’ Felicity Huffman for their participation in a college admissions scheme that involved over 50 elite individuals in the US and a variety of some of the top universities in the country, comes news that a movie is going to get made about the whole scandal titled College Admission Scandal.

The scandal allowed parents to pay large sums of money to bribe college officials to fraudulently inflate test scores. The scam also included the fabrication of sports credentials, and cheating on college entrance exams, to get clients’ children into universities after they paid large fortunes into fake charities.

Although many wealthy families were caught up in the illegal scheme, the obvious fame of these two women has garnered the most attention and according to TV Line, it’s their stories that will form the main focus of the planned movie:

College Admissions Scandal will follow two wealthy mothers who share an obsession with getting their teenagers into the best possible college. When charismatic college admissions consultant Rick Singer offers a side door into the prestigious institutions of their dreams, they willingly partake with visions of coveted acceptance letters in their heads.

Lifetime is making the movie which is intended to be a direct to TV production (in fitting with the actress’s TV fame) with Gail Katz and Howard Braunstein set to produce the movie, Adam Salky set to direct and Stephen Tolkin currently penning the script. No names are in place to play the two actresses yet, which will likely be where the big focus is going to be placed now as they look to finalise all the plans for the movie.

    These people needed to get locked up for a long time to make an example of them, a few crocodile tears and all the one lady got was a 4 month sentence, stealing a spot from some kid who deserves it could possibly set them back for life and their kids get a free ride?

      Didn’t follow it that closely but AFAIK the only ones that have been sentanced to far was those quilty of less erious charges and have plead guilty. For instance asking for brides into university sports programs instead of into personal accounts and smallish bribes for falsifying SAT scores etc.

      The ones buying unisveristy sports for $100’s thousands are yet reach the courts even if they plead quility because they are huge causes infolvining mafia level of charges like money laundering, mailf raud, racketeering etc. So are unlikely to get off that likely. Nothing pisses of a federal government more that cheating on the ye old taxes.
