A Deadly Adoption premieres at 8 p.m. ET Saturday, June 20
Playing the wife in A Deadly Adoption might not be the role of a lifetime for Kristen Wiig, but it’s a role she’s prepared for.
Wiig helped parody the Lifetime network in 2011 with an SNL sketch about gameshow called “What’s Wrong with Tanya?” which featured three mothers from Lifetime Original Movies. Wiig played contestant Jo Beth Anderson, who was introduced as the wife of a man who had a locked drawer in his office that she isn’t allowed to open.
“None of my business!” Wiig said, smiling.
Perfect training for A Deadly Adoption, in which she and Will Ferrell play a successful couple who invite a beautiful pregnant woman to live with them in the hopes of adopting her child after it’s born.
What could possibly go wrong?
The movie is pitched as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller” and is said to be “inspired by a true story.” It appears this one will be told in earnest.
