Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s Lifetime movie has a title (A Deadly Adoption), a release date (June 20), and even a poster hanging up on the streets of Hollywood.
One of the stranger announcements of the week definitely belongs to Ferrell and Wiig, who have basically filmed this Lifetime spoof in secret. If the poster and strange subtitle are any indication, A Deadly Adoption should bring the goods.
Rebecca Ford tweeted a photo of the poster for A Deadly Adoption, which is a billboard on Hollywood Boulevard:

A Deadly Adoption will be part of Lifetime’s 25th anniversary as a network producing overly melodramatic “true story” domestic thrillers. At least they appear to not take themselves too seriously. Rachel Lee Goldenberg directed A Deadly Adoption, from a screenplay by Andrew Steele. Steele was also responsible for the bizarre IFC miniseries The Spoils of Babylon which also featured Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig.
