If we were to tell you that the epic duo Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig are returning as a team in a secret Lifetime TV movie, Would you be excited? Are you ready for another round of ‘oh you get out of here’?
THR reports that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have teamed up for “A Deadly Adoption”. The melodrama stars Ferrell and Wiig as a rich successful couple that houses a pregnant girl (Jessica Lowndes from 90210) and pays for her expense in hopes of adopting the child.
The movie has been described as ‘campy and fun’ and it will premiere on Lifetime’s 25th anniversary, which is early this summer. But little does the couple know, as time passes, things will get twisted and complicated.
The movie has been produced and filmed by Gary Sanchez Productions (Ferrell and Adam McKay’s banner). Andrew Steele’s script is turned into a two-hour picture, directed by Love at the Christmas Table’s Rachel Lee Goldenberg. Ferrell and Wiig will be reuniting with Steele (The Spoils of Babylon).
Memories of Murder in 1990 was the first Lifetime movie of this genre. Ever since, we have had some great movies namely Killer Hair, A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story and Inspector Mom.
A Deadly Adoption premieres this Summer.
