Lifetime has provided us with a teaser trailer for their original movie (that is, in itself, a parody of Lifetime original movies) A Deadly Adoption, starring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig. Check it out below!
Designed to poke good-natured fun at Lifetime’s oft-melodramatic narratives, A Deadly Adoption will follow Ferrell and Wiig as a married couple who look after a pregnant woman in the hopes of adopting her child.
Produced by Gary Sanchez Productions, Mar Vista Entertainment and National Picture Show, A Deadly Adoption is scripted by “The Spoils of Babylon’s” Andrew Steele and is directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg, whose previous telefilm work includes Love at the Christmas Table, Escape from Polygamy and Sunday School Musical.
A Deadly Adoption will premiere on Saturday, June 20 at 8pm ET/PT as part of Lifetime’s 25th anniversary festivities.
