Crucial Update

The Full Trailer for Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrell's Lifetime Movie Arrived

An even longer trailer for A Deadly Adoption arrived to serve up more drama than ever imagined before on Lifetime. In the newly released trailer, it becomes clear that happy couple Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell are adopting the unborn child of Jessica Lowndes's character. Birth mother Lowndes takes a liking to Ferrell, seducing him and plotting to get rid of his wife, with some help from a pick up truck and a gun–some real Hand That Rocks the Cradle stuff, but more deadly and more adoption-y. This long tunnel of satirical stress will air on June 20th on Lifetime.
