miniseries

Red tent
Ever since Anita Diamant's 1997 novel, The Red Tent, blew up into a global best seller — with a reported 3.3 million copies in 28 languages sold — fans have debated what it would be like to see the Bible-inspired work come to life on film. Lifetime answers that question Dec. 7 and 8 with its miniseries adaptation starring Rebecca Ferguson ( Mission: Impossible 5) as Dinah, daughter of the biblical Jacob; Minnie Driver as Leah, Dinah’s mother; Morena Baccarin ( Homeland) as Rachel, Jacob’s beloved second wife; and Debra Winger as Jacob’s mother, Rebecca. It's sexy and exotic, with sumptuous images of biblical women communing together in the private confines of their “earthbound rainbow” shelter and otherwise dealing with life amid the windswept wastes of antiquity.
