The Lifetime movie platform seems like a strange home for actors like Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, yet in April it was announced that the two would be starring in an upcoming Lifetime drama-satire called “A Deadly Adoption.” After the announcement, the film was apparently canceled as the comic duo had hoped to air the film as a complete surprise — but for those who were looking forward to the project, there is hope as the first teaser for the film has been released.
In the film, Ferrell and Wiig play a couple who help take care of a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes of “90210”) so as to adopt her unborn baby. Little has been said about it other than the brief synopsis, but given the title, trailer and nature of Lifetime films, it’s safe to say that things do not go as planned. Adam McKay, Ferrell’s longtime collaborator, is listed as an executive producer.
“A Deadly Adoption” premieres June 20 at 8pm ET. Check out the trailer above.
