The Lifetime Movie About The Steubenville Rape Case Is Very, Well, Lifetime

OOOF
  • If you have literally nothing else in the world to do tomorrow night, Lifetime will be airing “The Assault,” a new made-for-TV movie based on the Steubenville rape case. Although it would appear, to put it mildly, that some facts of the story are massively altered. The movie opens with the victim attempting suicide by lighting herself on fire, and she soon reveals that her mother has just died — neither of which are true of the real-life case. Apparently, a gruesome rape and subsequent cover-up and shunning of the victim isn’t dramatic enough in itself to Lifetime? [Slate]

Aubrey Plaza Will Voice Grumpy Cat In Upcoming Lifetime Movie

  • Aubrey Plaza will voice Grumpy Cat in the upcoming Lifetime movie “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever.” Poor Grumpy Cat, she probably just wants to take naps in the sun and get belly rubs like a normal cat, but instead she endures a life of show biz and overpetting. The film is about an overlooked pet store kitty who meets a 12-year-old girl who can communicate with her, and it will premiere on November 29. Get excited! [MTV]

Lifetime’s Movie “The Brittany Murphy Story” Doesn’t Look Too Tasteless, I Guess?

That's Supposed To Be Brittany And Ashton

Lifetime could have done worse with “The Brittany Murphy Story,” judging by the trailer for the made-for-TV movie airing this Saturday. The film follows the career, personal life and mysterious death of the “Clueless” actress, who passed away from a combination of pneumonia, anemia, and drugs at the age of 32. Her husband, the British screenwriter Simon Monjack, was found dead only five months later. Keep reading »

The First Clip From Lifetime’s “The Unauthorized ‘Saved By The Bell’ Story” Is Super Awks

Um, Nice Casting?

Let’s be clear about two things: Lifetime’s behind-the-scenes movie about the making of “Saved by the Bell” is going to be a hot mess and I am going to watch the shit out of it. The first clip from the upcoming TV movie — airing September 1 — hit the web today, and for the love of Mr. Belding, I seriously cannot handle the casting. The actors are all so WEE. I mean, I know that Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Amber (never forget) Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, etc. were all in their teens when they started the show back in the late-’80s, but they looked way more mature than the fools Lifetime has playing them. Seriously, the dude playing Mark-Paul/Zach looks like a 10-year-old with a Maltese on his head. He’s giving me major douchechills, which is totally the opposite of what Mark-Paul did to me all those years ago. Kudos to the music department though — Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison” is a classic.

Wait, Why Did No One Tell Me Tony Goldwyn Is Playing Warren Jeffs In A Lifetime Original Movie?

"Do You Feel God?"

There’s no joy quite like the elation of finding out 1) there’s a trashy new Lifetime original movie about fundamentalist Mormons coming out, 2) it stars one of the hot guys in your spank bank, and 3) it’s airing this weekend when you just so happen to have no plans. Introducing “Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs,” a Lifetime original movie debuting this Saturday night. Tony Goldwyn, who plays Fitz on “Scandal,” stars as the fundamentalist polygamist Mormon/cult leader who believes he is a “prophet” and forces the marriages of adult men to underage girls. I’m sure Lifetime will have all sorts of lawyered-up language — “Inspired by true events!” —  but will be accurate enough in a TV movie sorta way. One thing is for sure, I’ll be watching.

Lifetime Will Air TV Movie About Behind-The-Scenes On “Saved By The Bell”

  • Well, this is interesting/exciting/strange/cool: Lifetime is airing an TV movie about behind-the-scenes drama on the ’90s TV show “Saved By The Bell.” They’ve even cast six actors who look just like Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, and the other kids. You’ll have to wait until Labor Day for it to air! [BuzzFeed, Variety]
  • Take this with a grain of salt because it’s from The National Enquirer, but Orlando Bloom is supposedly pursuing Taylor Swift (even though he had a fling in the past with her friend Selena Gomez, while she was briefly broken up with Justin Bieber — so complicated!). [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
