On April Fools’ Day, the collective people of the Internet got very excited when it was reported that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig were co-starring in a Lifetime movie. Then, our dreams were crushed when Will and Kristen said in a joint statement that they would “forego the project entirely” because of the leaked news.
Well, it turns out the former SNL stars aren’t to be trusted. Not only is A Deadly Adoption happening, it’s happening in less than two weeks!
In typical Lifetime style, the movie is billed as a “high-stakes dramatic thriller.” It features Will and Kristen as a couple who “house and care for” a young pregnant woman (90210‘s Jessica Lowndes) with the intentions of adopting her baby. That explains the “Adoption” part, but we’ll just have to tune in to see how “Deadly” comes into play!
Along with the new details, Lifetime also released the first trailer today:
A Deadly Adoption premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, June 20 at 8/7c.
