Lifetime has announced two new TV movies, “A Rose For Her Grave” and “Desperate Hours,” both based on novels by author Ann Rule.
“A Rose For Her Grave” stars Chrisell Stause of “Selling Sunset” fame, Colin Egglesfield and Laura Ramsey, and follows husband-murderer Randy Roth against the woman who finally brings him to justice.
Gina Gerson will serve as director for the first time on “Desperate Hours.” The film stars Samantha Mathis, Harrison Thomas and David Conrad. The screenplay is an adaptation of Rule’s novel “Last Chance”. The film follows a mother who finds herself and her young children held hostage by a man who is forced into their home after committing a murder earlier in the day.
Both films will debut on the network in 2023.
