First Look At Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell’s Lifetime Movie

A Deadly Adoption is a go! The Lifetime movie, starring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, will air June 20, THR has confirmed. It was reportedly Ferrell’s lifelong dream to make a Lifetime movie; when news of the secret project leaked this past April, Ferrell claimed the movie was canceled. Not so!

Ferrell and Wiig play the ill-fated couple who invite a young single mother-to-be (Jessica Lowndes) into their home. I’m pretty sure that’s Lowndes — trying to mow Ferrell down with her car — in this, the movie’s first official trailer:

Earliest reports suggested that A Deadly Adoption was going to be “campy” or “soapy” — the script is by Andrew Steele, who wrote The Spoils of Babylon — but the 20-second teaser looks completely straightforward and serious. Which, to be honest, is the best possible way to play it, I think. (The official website refers to A Deadly Adoption as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller.” SOLD.)
