Williams can also be seen in the lead role in VH1's scripted series inspired by Star Jones 2011 book "Satan's Sisters: A Novel of Fiction." Set in the bright lights of daytime television, the fireworks start every weekday at noon when the hosts of "The Lunch Hour" -- a long-running popular TV talk show -- discuss life, love, family, politics, and gossip. Williams will play the role of Maxine, the creator and host of "The Lunch Hour;" a formidable, powerful, and decisive woman, but fears she's being put out to pasture. Slated for a 2017 premiere, the series will focus on Maxine and her co-hosts, five women with very different points of view, are best friends and sisters... while they're on TV. But behind the scenes, they are "Satan's Sisters" -- a backstage world filled with power struggles, personal demons, diva fits, love affairs, man troubles, cat fights...and cocktails.

Vanessa Williams plays on Saturday, November 4 at 8 p.m. at The Ridgefield Playhouse, 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT. Tickets are $75, VIP Meet and Greet Cocktail Party Tickets $125.
