Amanda Knox attempting to stop Italian airing of Lifetime movie

Posted on

Amanda Knox Movie

The movie made its debut in the U.S in February, but Amanda Knox is hoping a judge can block the Lifetime original movie Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy from airing in Italy, where her appeal is currently taking place, and order that all materials relating to the movie — including clips, trailers, and images — be pulled from the Internet.

ABC News reports that Knox’s lawyers are zeroing their efforts in on Lifetime, Google, and YouTube, the latter of which has since pulled all trailers and clips of the movie from the site. (Although, low-quality versions are still available.)

Knox is currently serving a 26-year sentence for the 2007 murder of her British roommate Meredith Kercher. Lifetime is not commenting on the case, and YouTube has not immediately responded to EW’s calls for comment. On the night of its debut a month ago, the movie pulled in 2.8 million viewers.
