Susannah Grant Pens Lynn Shaw Biopic

Susannah Grant (“Erin Brockovich,” “The Soloist”) has been hired to write an untitled dramatic biopic on Texas high school teacher Lynn Shaw for Disney Pictures says Variety.

The story centers on Shaw, a teacher who created a high school drama program and turned it into one of the best in the country. She died of breast cancer in 2009.

“Smallville” creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are producing, Gough compares it to feel good Disney sports dramas like “The Rookie” and “Miracle” in terms of tone.
