CBS’ Frey telepic goes on Amber alert

Moloney to play title role in 'Witness'

“The West Wing” thesp Janel Moloney has snagged the title role in the upcoming CBS telepic “Witness: The Amber Frey Story.”

Frey’s adulterous affair with Scott Peterson became a key component of Peterson’s recent murder trial. Eye’s telepic is based on her just-released book on the case (Daily Variety, Jan. 7).

Peter Werner (“We Were the Mulvaneys”) has also come on board to direct the pic, which begins lensing next month in Vancouver. Eye has been mum on an airdate for the project, but with production starting so soon, a May sweeps broadcast is not out of the realm of possibility.

Braun Entertainment Group is producing the pic, with Donald Martin (“Family Sins”) attached to write the script. Zev Braun and Philip Krupp (“Menendez: A Killing in Beverly Hills”) will exec produce.

A two-time Emmy nominee for her work on “West Wing,” Moloney’s credits include the Showtime pic “Bang Bang, You’re Dead.”
