UPDATED: For decades, Cher has been an icon of the gay community. Now the actress-singer has set up a period drama project for LGBT-centric cable channel Logo TV. Logo just made the announcement at the top of its TCA presentation. The network has ordered a pilot script for the scripted project, from Cher and veteran TV writer-producer Ron Zimmerman, which is set in 1960s Hollywood. Logo would not provide additional details on the drama, which I’ve learned is not gay-themed but described as an “adult show for everyone.” Cher is currently attached as writer alongside Zimmerman but may also co-star.
