lifetime christina ricci the lizzie borden chronicles

Back in November we learned that "Veronica Mars" alumna Jessy Schram and Jonathan Banks ("Breaking Bad") had joined the cast of Lifetime’s six-episode limited series "The Lizzie Borden Chronicles", which follows-up the tale of Borden (Christina Ricci) from Lifetime's "Lizzie Borden Took an Ax". Also returning for the series is the movie’s Clea DuVall, who will also reprise her role as Lizzie Borden’s sister, Emma.

Now we've landed the sizzle reel for the upcoming 6-part limited series and I gotta say that it looks rather intriguing and surprisingly bloody. It may be worth checking out when it debuts in April. An exact date should be announced soon.

The limited series offers a fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie’s life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity. But when numerous people close to Lizzie, ranging from her half-brother to Broadway luminaries and the head of the criminal underworld, start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise.

“The Lizzie Borden Chronicles” is produced by Sony Pictures Television and executive produced by Judith Verno (Lizzie Borden Took an Ax) and Ricci.  The limited series is written by Greg Small and Rich Blaney (Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret), Barbara Nance (“House of Lies”), Jason Grote (“Mad Men”), and David Simkins (“Grimm”).  Stephen Kay (“Sons of Anarchy”) directs episodes one and two while Russell Mulcahy (“Teen Wolf”) directs episodes three and four and Howard Deutch (“American Horror Story”) helms episodes five and six.
