Story Of Prom-Denied Gay Mississippi Teen Constance McMillen To Be TV Movie

The life story of Constance McMillan, the lesbian Mississippi high school student who was banned from her prom, will be made into a television movie.
One of the rare cases where the bullying led to a happy ending -- the story of rural Mississipi lesbian high school student Constance McMillen who successfully sued the local school district for discrimination -- will become a TV movie for ABC Family. The project, in early stages of development, hails from Craig Zadan and Neil Meron and Sony Pictures TV who have optioned the rights to McMillen’s story. Ghost Whisperer creator/executive producer John Gray will write the script and is expected to direct.
The movie's producers have won GLAAD Media Awards for Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story and for What Makes A Family.
