Watch Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig in the first promo for their Lifetime movie, 'A Deadly Adoption'

Posted on

Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig are starring in their own Lifetime movie, titled A Deadly Adoption. This is not a drill.

On Thursday, Lifetime released the first trailer for the movie, which premieres June 20 at 8 p.m. The secret project—which Ferrell previously said was being shelved after news about it leaked—is billed as a “high-stakes dramatic thriller” about a couple played by Ferrell and Wiig, who take in a pregnant woman (that would be 90210‘s Jessica Lowndes) in hopes of adopting her child. Repeat: This is not a drill.
