Watch: Full Trailer for Will Ferrell & Kristen Wiig’s Lifetime Movie ‘A Deadly Adoption’

Lifetime released the full-length official trailer for Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s Lifetime movie “A Deadly Adoption” on Monday — and yes, it’s even campier than the first teaser.

In the new video, Ferrell and Wiig, who play a successful married couple, take in a pregnant woman (“90210’s” Jessica Lowndes) with the hopes of adopting her unborn child. Their life is turned upside down when they house her in the “high-stakes thriller,” which appears to be a parody of typical Lifetime TV movies.

The trailer compiles all the perfect TV movie elements — a perfect family, a sleepy town, an affair gone wrong, crying, yelling, a lake, a gun, rain, dramatic music and an eerie tagline: “the birth of a plan gone wrong.”

“A Deadly Adoption” will debut on Lifetime on June 20.

    April Fools right?

  2. Looks good and suspenseful keeps my mind going concentrating on what’s going to happen next. Oftentimes these Lifetime movies are so unbelievable I burst out laughing during them. The violent scenes usually toward the end are sometimes gory but thankfully they don’t last long.
