No, it isn't a Lifetime production.

Her days as a Disney tween princess firmly behind her, Hilary Duff is looking to branch out into dramatic roles — and in her next film, she’ll get some assistance from Ellen Burstyn.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Duff and Burstyn will star with Evan Ross (son of Miss Ross) and Michael Murphy in Greta. From the article:

Duff will play the title role of a waitress who falls for an ambitious cook (Ross) at the restaurant where they work. But as their summer romance heats up, she has to overcome the concerns of her grandparents (Burstyn, Murphy) about her boyfriend’s criminal past. The comic drama is now shooting in New Jersey.

Greta was written by Michael Gilvary and is being directed by Nancy Bardawil. If neither of those names are familiar, don’t fret; Greta marks the feature debut for both. Bardawil has helmed a number of music videos for artists such as Goo Goo Dolls and Five for Fighting, while Gilvary is listed as the screenwriter for Devil to Pay, a Lucy Liu thriller scheduled for release next year.
