Lifetime is a cable channel which targets women by portraying women in lead roles. Usually males are depicted as criminal, corrupt or unfaithful or you can mix and match. So, it will be interesting to see Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig in the upcoming Lifetime movie, A Deadly Adoption. The trailer has just arrived and although brief and with few details, the actors who usually entertain fans with comedic performances, play this straight. So, what is the audience getting into? Check it out!
The story follows a childless, yet successful couple, who house and care for a mysterious pregnant woman during her final months of pregnancy with the hopes of adopting her unborn child. Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig secretly made this film. It was a surprise to many people when the announcement of the movie was leaked to the press.
Lifetime is known for their many melodramatic movies. With Ferrell and Wiig playing these roles seriously, perhaps this is a chance to show the audience how ridiculous some of Lifetime’s movies have become.
A Deadly Adoption premieres on Lifetime on June 20 at 8pm EST. The movie stars Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Jessica Lowndes, Jake Weary, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Brooke Lyons, Debra Christofferson and Bryan Safi. Andrew Steele wrote the screenplay, while Rachel Goldenberg (IFC’s Spoils of Babylon) directs.
