Here’s a plot synopsis of the Ferrell/Wiig Lifetime flick from IGN’s initial report back in April:
“Ferrell and Wiig star in the dramatic thriller as a successful couple who house and care for a pregnant woman (played by 90210 alum Jessica Lowndes) with the hopes of adopting her unborn child — then things quickly go awry.”
News of Ferrell / Wiig Lifetime movie first broke in April. But almost as soon as the word got out, Ferrell claimed he’d decided to scrap his plans. “We are deeply disappointed that our planned top secret project was made public,” he said in a statement at the time. “Kristen and I have decided it is in the best interest for everyone to forego the project entirely.”
Two months later the confusion was finally put to rest when the film was confirmed to be real, completed and ready to air.
A Deadly Adoption will air on Lifetime June 20 at 8/7c
