Alicia Keys, Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore have each been recruited by cable network Lifetime to direct a short film about breast cancer and its impact on people’s lives.
“Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman is overseeing the collection of five short films called “Project Five,” the TV network announced this week. This is the first time she and Aniston have worked together since the sitcom “Friends” ended in 2004.
Filmmaker Patty Jenkins, who made the 2003 crime drama “Monster,” will be the fourth director. A fifth will be chosen later.
Kauffman supervised a team of writers that came up with five stories that use humor and drama to show the effects of breast cancer on women’s relationships and how they perceive themselves, said Lifetime Networks.
The collection of five short films, slated to air sometime this year, will be produced by Sony Pictures Television.
