Finally, a Lifetime movie I'm actually interested in watching. The two Saturday Night Live stars known for their ridiculous characters are taking on perhaps their most surprising roles yet.
A Deadly Adoption follows a couple, played by Ferrell and Wiig, interested in adopting a child. The couple takes in a pregnant women whose kid they hope to adopt, and if the trailer is any indication, things don't go as planned.
Here's what I'm wondering - is this a satirical film that Wiig and Ferrell are just using to poke fun at the ridiculousness that is Lifetime? I can only assume so. The two actors have established themselves well enough on both the big and small screens that they can pretty much do whatever they want, including produce and star in a really bad Lifetime movie.
A Deadly Adoption will premiere June 20th. I'll tune in, if only to see how these two comedy actors toe the line between sarcasm and drama.
