Penelope Ann Miller and Canadian actress Mia Kirshner are to headline a new TV movie about the U.S. college admissions scandal.

The actresses will lead the cast of The College Admissions Scandal, which chronicles the story of wealthy parents, including stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who tried to cheat the system and land their kids spots in elite colleges.

Miller and Kirshner will play fictional mums, while Canadian actor Michael Shanks portrays college admissions consultant Rick Singer, who infamously helped parents cut through red tape and academic restrictions to score spots at schools like the University of Southern California and Stanford.

The College Admissions Scandal will debut on Lifetime this autumn.

The project is one of many about the criminal conspiracy currently underway — Moneyball producer Rachael Horovitz has teamed up with Vanity Fair contributing editor Evgenia Peretz on a TV adaptation of her investigative piece of the scandal, while Melissa Korn and Jen Levitz’s upcoming tome about the scandal has been picked up for a new limited series, according to Deadline.
