Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption to air June 20
Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig quickly "cancelled" their secret Lifetime movie after news of it leaked online, but (surprise, surprise) it's been confirmed that A DEADLY ADOPTION is set to debut on the network on Saturday, June 20. Lifetime announced its air date with a giant Billboard on Hollywood Boulevard, although the poster incorrectly says it will premiere on Sunday.
Rachel Lee Goldenberg (Escape From Polygamy, Love at the Christmas Table) directed the two-hour Lifetime movie parody from a script by The Spoils of Babylon scribe Andrew Steele, and Ferrell and Wiig star as "a successful couple who house and care for a pregnant woman (played by 90210 alum Jessica Lowndes) in the hopes of adopting her unborn child — then things quickly go awry." The film is described as a "campy, fun, contemporary wink at the genre," and it will help mark the 25th anniversary of the network's television movie projects.
