Gold Star Films is developing a new project about Lee Ledbetter. With its tentative title of “Getwell Road,” the film will follow the 1950’s pioneer of female pharmaceutical sales representative through the eyes of her son, Dale.

He published his mother’s letters, which describe her fight through gender bias to find success in the field, in a book called “From Mother With Love.”

Tiffany Romigh has been hired to pen the script, while Joey Tufaro is co-producing with Dale Ledbetter, as well as Gold Star partner Todd Trosclair, who will serve as executive producer.

No release date has been announced yet.
