'A Deadly Adoption': See Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig in extended trailer

Posted on

The highly anticipated Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption hits the small screen on Saturday, and ahead of its release, the network has given us a deeper look at the film. Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig star as a couple who want to adopt a second child and seem to have found the perfect birth mother, until things take a dark turn.

In the extended trailer, the potential birth mother (Jessica Lowndes) fantasizes about raising the child with Ferrell’s character, who can’t help but gawk at her as she sunbathes. The pregnant woman clearly has ulterior motives, as she eerily states her desire to live in a “town like this with a family like yours” to Wiig’s character. The trailer piles on the drama with scared children, heavy rainfall, and an angry mystery man—and we’re left with Lowndes pointing a gun at a sandy-haired Ferrell.

A Deadly Adoption might feature more dark humor than the laugh-out-loud comedy Ferrell and Wiig usually provide. It premieres June 20 at 8 p.m.
