Only hours after it was announced back in April that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig were working on a Lifetime movie together, the two released a statement that because the project was supposed to be a secret, it was in their best interest to not move forward with it. Well, the joke’s on us because they made it anyway!
On June 20th, a high-stakes drama thrilled titled “A Deadly Adoption” will premiere on Lifetime. Wiig and Ferrell play a husband and wife who take in and care for a woman (Jessica Lowndes) in the final months of her pregnancy with hopes of adopting the baby. However, the situation quickly spirals dangerously out of control.
As you know, these two actors are usually always in comedic roles so this will be great to see them doing something else. In fact, Wiig is also in another serious role this year in the film The Martian, starring Matt Damon. Wet your appetite for A Deadly Adoption the short preview below!
