The Paramount Network has decided to fast-track its reboot of First Wives Club.

The cable network has handed out a 10-episode series order for the reboot. Casting has not yet been announced for the reboot of the 1996 feature that originally starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn though sources say the cable network is looking to make all three leads to be played by non-white actresses.
