Lifetime descends on the ‘Hamptons’

Telepic to bow July 11

Poppy Montgomery, David Sutcliffe and Shawn Christian have signed on to star in “Murder in the Hamptons,” an original movie for Lifetime.

Telepic, set to bow July 11, is based on the murder of multimillionaire investment banker Ted Ammon (Sutcliffe) and his strained relationship with wife Generosa (Montgomery).

Jerry Ciccoritti (“Lives of the Saints”) will direct from a script by Robert L. Freedman (“Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows”).

Ammon was found dead in October 2001, at a time when he was in the middle of a bitter divorce and custody battle. Christian plays Danny Pelosi, a construction worker who becomes Generosa’s lover and is later convicted for Ammon’s murder.

Lifetime’s last five original movies rank as the most-watched made-fors on basic cable this year.

Muse Entertainment will produce “Murder in the Hamptons” with Barbara Lieberman and Bernard Zukerman exec producing.

Montgomery currently stars in CBS drama “Without a Trace.” Sutcliffe toplined the laffer “I’m With Her” and has a recurring role on the WB’s “Gilmore Girls.” His credits include an arc on Lifetime’s “The Division.” Christian is in the cast of the WB’s “Summerland” and next stars in the pic “Shopgirl,” opposite Steve Martin.
