Lifetime's 'Verdict' in for trio


Madchen Amick, Robin Givens and Emma Lung have been cast as the leads in Lifetime's pilot presentation "The Verdict," directed by Mark Piznarski.

The Lionsgate project centers on the "crime of the century" trial of a beloved pop star who has been accused of having her lover murdered.

Amick will play Christine, a talented assistant D.A. assigned to the case. Christine juggles her first high-profile trial with her marriage to a media dynasty heir.

Givens will play Ayira, the pop singer/supermodel-turned-mogul on trial for allegedly having her lover/personal trainer killed by her bodyguard.

Lung will play Fiona, a British news reporter covering the case.

"Verdict" was penned by Jon Maas, who is executive producing with Jonathan Prince and Howard Klein. Production is slated to begin this month in Philadelphia.

Amick is repped by Gersh, Melanie Greene Management and attorney George Davis.

Givens is repped by the Marshak/Zachary Co.
