For readers who grew up in the 1980s, reading Jean M. Auel’s THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR was a rite of literary passage. Of course, we also suffered through the bad 1986 film starring Daryl Hannah. But take heart, CLAN fans: This week brings news that the classic novel is being developed for a potential TV series on Lifetime. Nothing is guaranteed, but with Ron Howard and Brian Grazer executive producing, we have a good shot at a great new show next year. Fingers crossed.
