Cult favourite The First Wives Club, released back in 1996, is now being turned into a series on your telly box. It's been in the works for a good while, but network TV Land has just lined up their leading wives and the show is finally under way.

How I Met Your Mother's Alyson Hannigan will take on the role of English professor Maggie, while Smash's Megan Hilty will star as Kim, an actress whose casting days are numbered. It will be set in present day San Francisco, and like the movie, will chronicle the story of three friends who reconnect after a former mutual friend dies in a tragic accident. Together, they'll face love, loss and lots more.

As for the third wife, Nick Lachey's wife Vanessa has just signed on to play the role of Sasha, a successful chef.

We've been majorly missing Hannigan on our screens since HIMYM wrapped, but all going well, this should more than fill that gap.
