Actress Jennifer Grey is set to star in a TV movie about the young burglars who raided the Hollywood homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom.
Five people, including Nick Prugo - the man billed as the gang's ringleader, were arrested and charged on felony first degree residential burglary counts last year.
The group, known as the Hollywood Bling Ring, was believed to be responsible for a string of celebrity break-ins in 2008 and 2009, reportedly stealing designer clothing, jewellery and cash from victims including actress Rachel Bilson and reality TV star Audrina Patridge.
Network bosses at Lifetime are now working on turning the alleged crime spree into a film entitled Bling Ring, although the suspects' names will be changed for legal reasons.
Dirty Dancing star Grey will play the mother of Prugo's small screen character, according to TMZ.com. Bling Ring is expected to premiere this summer.
