Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s bizarre Lifetime movie, “A Deadly Adoption,” is mere hours away from its world premiere on Saturday, June 20. With the normally comedic actors opting to take on a seriously dramatic project, many fans of both comedy and Lifetime movies are likely to tune in to watch.
“A Deadly Adoption” will premiere live on Lifetime at 8 p.m. EDT on Saturday, June 20. However, if you’re one of the unlucky ones that isn’t planning to be near his or her television at that time don’t worry, you have other options. The movie will air a total of four times before the sun rises. There’s the premiere at 8 p.m. followed immediately by three encore presentations starting at 10 p.m. EDT, midnight and 2 a.m. EDT. In other words, as long as you tune into Lifetime between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. you’ll be able to see at least a little bit of the highly anticipated… Comedy? Drama? Dramedy?
Now, if you’re really unlucky and don’t plan on being near a television for the “Deadly Adoption” premiere all night, you’re still not out of luck. Lifetime posts all of its original movies online via the Lifetime App, which is available for iOS and Android devices as well as most conventional smart TV boxes like Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire and Xbox. All you’ll need to do is download the app or visit the My Lifetime website and enter the information of your cable provider and your password. From there you can watch “A Deadly Adoption” in all of its melodramatic glory whenever you want.
For those who don’t know, “A Deadly Adoption” stars the two comedic actors as a husband and wife that take in a young pregnant woman, played by Jessica Lowndes, so that they can care for her and adopt her baby once she’s born. However, being a Lifetime movie and all, things go awry and Lowndes’ character becomes obsessed with Ferrell’s character. As previously reported, this movie has almost the exact same plot as a 2007 Lifetime original movie titled “The Last Trimester” (but previously billed on IMDB as “Deadly Adoption”).
