Camryn Manheim has been added to the cast of Lifetime’s original telepic “Pregnancy Pact.”
Film is inspired by the true story of teenagers at Gloucester (Mass.) High School who agreed to get pregnant at the same time.
Manheim will play the nurse who alerts the school of the increasing number of pregnancies and offers contraceptives to those girls who aren’t pregnant.
Von Zerneck-Sertner Films is set to produce, with Frank Von Zerneck and Robert Sertner serving as exec producers. Pam Davis (“House”) and Teena Booth (“Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal”) will write.
Production is currently under way, and “Pact” is scheduled to air on Lifetime in first quarter 2010. Thora Birch and Nancy Travis star.
