Lifetime takes us deep into the iconic friendship of the duo in their new made for television movie, Patsy & Loretta. The film examines the bond between the two singers as they navigate life through troubled relationships, being on the road with families at home, and being women in a male-dominated industry.
Tony award nominated Meghan Hilty, who starred in NBC’s Smash, and Tony award winner Jessie Mueller take on the roles as Patsy and Loretta, respectively, transforming themselves into the iconic pair, even using their own singing voices for the part.
In addition to their friendship, the movie looks at Patsy’s untimely death in a plane crash in 1963 which devastated Loretta, who saw Patsy as a mentor and friend.
Patsy & Loretta, which is being co-produced by Patsy’s daughter, Julie Fudge, and Loretta’s daughter, Patsy Lynn Russell, will air on Lifetime on October 19. Don’t forget the tissues!
The stars of the show hit the red carpet at a screening for the movie at the Franklin Theater in Franklin, Tennessee.
