A Deadly Adoption, the highly-anticipated Lifetime Original Movie (or LOM, as I like to call them), starring Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell, will be here on June 20. The cable network has been slowly tantalizing us with its arrival, first by releasing a poster last week and now, a 20-second teaser trailer.
Inspired by a true story, A Deadly Adoption is a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Ferrell and Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes, 90210 ) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hopes of adopting her unborn child.
Just last weekend I immersed myself in a LOM marathon consisting of Double Daddy and Deadly Revenge, so you can count on me to be analyzing both Ferrell and Wiig’s performances with a critical eye. After all, talent is measured differently in the realm that is Lifetime. Will Wiig be as mesmerizing as Life Goes On’s Kellie Martin in Death of a Cheerleader? Can Ferrell match Rob Lowe’s astounding portrayal of Drew Peterson in Untouchable? We shall soon find out.
