A film about the recent life of Martha Stewart is to go in to production just weeks after the lifestyle guru was released from jail.
Stewart is attempting to overturn her conviction
CBS is producing the TV movie about the past six years of Stewart's life.
She is currently serving five months under house arrest in New York State following her conviction for lying about the sale of shares.
There are reports of Cybill Shepherd playing her, having done so previously, but casting is not yet complete.
Shooting will get underway on 28 March in Toronto, Canada, and could take as little as four weeks to complete.
"The story begins the day her company (Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia) goes public and it ends the day she's released from prison," said executive producer Tom Patricia.
"Our opinion is that it is probably one of the most memorable comeback stories ever."
Stewart returned to court on Thursday to start the appeal process against her conviction.
Her lawyer, Walter Dellinger, argued the conviction should be reversed on two grounds: that one juror lied on his selection questionnaire, and that a government witness allegedly perjured himself.
