“I can’t tell how happy you’ve made us — and you’re gonna have a perfect life too one day, I promise.”
Ferrell and Wiig star in the dramatic thriller as a successful couple who house and care for a pregnant woman (played by 90210 alum Jessica Lowndes) in the hopes of adopting her unborn child — but then things quickly go awry. The movie is described as a campy, fun, contemporary wink at the genre, and it comes as Lifetime is poised to mark the 25th anniversary of its TV movie business.
The new trailer shows a lot more about why exactly the adoption is so deadly, as Ferrell is put in tempting situations with seemingly dire consequences. Still, Wiig asks, “What does she want with us?!”
Well, Lowndes wants that perfect life that Wiig promised: “I hope it’s in a town like this with a family like yours.”
A Deadly Adoption premieres June 20 on Lifetime.
