Lifetime explored one version of Egyptian queen Cleopatra in their Elizabeth Taylor biopic, "Liz & Dick," starring Lindsay Lohan, in 2012. Now, though, they're taking on another version of the legendary pharaoh.

Deadline reports that Lifetime is developing a four-hour miniseries written by Robert Port of "Numbers" and produced by Michael Goldstein and Mike Larkin ("Scoundrels").
