Lifetime is known for their highly dramatized suspense-filled thriller films, but their February lineup for the annual “Ripped From The Headlines” programming event is one of their scariest—with every movie based on a real story.

The 2021 lineup will be no different when it comes to stories that are jaw-dropping and seem like they can’t be true, but unlike the fictional stories the network may bring to screens throughout the rest of the year, these ones are shockingly taken from real-life experiences, and each will feature a “Beyond the Headlines” documentary feature after their air date.

Check out the full schedule of new films below.

“Death Saved My Life”

But behind closed doors, her life is far from idyllic. Her husband Ed (Okonkwo) is a controlling man who is physically and psychologically abusive. When Jade decides to leave Ed, he tells her, ‘If I can’t have you, nobody will,’ a threat which becomes very real when she discovers he has hired someone to kill her. Knowing no one will believe her, Jade realizes the only way to escape Ed is to make him believe the hitman completed the job and that she is dead.”
