For nearly three decades, Lifetime original movies have been a part of America’s cultural fabric. Uniquely capturing shocking scenarios involving scandal, deception, love gone bad, dark secrets, murder and other unscrupulous behaviors, what has made these movies so resonant is the fact many of them are true and now, for the first time, viewers will be hearing from the real people behind these fascinating stories. I adore Lifetime movies. They are such a wonderful escape. But sometimes life can definitely feel like a Lifetime movie.
Inspired by the cultural impact of its genre-defining movie brand, Lifetime has ordered the all-new hybrid unscripted series My Life is a Lifetime Movie™, which will premiere on Wednesday, October 17, at 10:00 PM ET/PT. With a fresh and irreverent tone, My Life is a Lifetime Movie will weave together highly cinematic recreations and first person interviews with women in peril who recount their jaw-dropping experiences that are so astonishing and so unbelievable, that they must be true.
My Life is a Lifetime Movie will feature such incredible stories as an attractive young teacher whose life is turned upside down by an overzealous student’s shocking accusations of sexual misconduct; a husband and wife who befriended a neighbor only to have their good deed turn into a real-life fatal attraction that resulted in a near-death experience; a twice divorced mom who thought she found her prince charming… but who was actually a Cuban spy; and a determined mother who took on a small town to save her daughter’s reputation when she gets dragged into a sexting scandal; and many more. These accounts will be told by women from around the United States, from the cornfields of Iowa to the Big Apple, who share a common thread: implausible stories that will have viewers on the edge of their seats.
Samples of past classic Lifetime movies that are evocative of the types of stories to be highlighted in My Life is a Lifetime Movie are My Stepson, My Lover; Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?; The Pregnancy Pact; Betty Broderick: A Woman Scorned; Mom at 16; A Date with Darkness.
How is your life like a lifetime movie? Mine certainly can feel like one sometimes — let’s just say it has involved scandal and mystery siblings. The aforementioned things are not all directly involved with me (the siblings are obviously) and I won’t get into too much detail, but it certainly feels like my life could be easily written into a popular Lifetime affair.
