Christina Ricci Stars As Lizzie Borden In Lifetime Series
After the success of Lizzie Borden Took An Ax, Lifetime has decided to followup the story with a six episode series, Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles. Fall River Chronicles will star Christina Ricci, reprising the role of Lizzie, and Clea DuVall, also returning. The show will follow Lizzie and those surrounding her after the trial and her controversial acquittal.
Clearly I don’t watch enough Lifetime because I completely missed that Ricci played the famous murderess, but a show about her life after the trial, even if it is fictionalized, sounds fascinating. This is one of several candidates to fill the spot left by The Bridge, which has been cancelled (http://www.vingle.net/posts/546875).
