Lifetime is moving forward with a sequel to breast cancer anthology FIVE, signing on its first two actors.
Like its first breast cancer-themed installment, FIVE will feature five short films featuring A-list talent both in front and behind the camera. The sequel will address mental illness.
The first installment starred Patricia Clarkson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Josh Holloway and Jennifer Morrison, among others, with directors including Patty Jenkins, Aniston, Alicia Keys and Demi Moore.
The two-hour October 2011 telecast averaged just 1.3 million total viewers but was widely considered a prestige play for the female-skewing cable network.
