Lifetime movies have become their own genre of terrible. High drama, camp, opulence on a budget, stars of yesteryear trying to get a paycheque biting the scenery, — it’s all part of what makes them great!
Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell see this, so they’ve teamed up with Lifetime to star in their very own Lifetime movie called ‘A Deadly Adoption’!
Set for a likely early summer debut, Ferrell and Wiig star in the dramatic thriller as a successful couple who house and care for a pregnant woman (played by 90210 alum Jessica Lowndes) with the hopes of adopting her unborn child — then things quickly go awry. The movie is described as campy and fun and a contemporary wink at the genre that comes as Lifetime is poised to mark the 25th anniversary of its TV movie business.
This is genius. That premise is so Lifetime, it hurts!
