Jenn Lyon Stars in Lifetime Movie THE NEIGHBOR IN THE WINDOW

Jenn Lyon ("Jennifer" in TNT's "Claws") is starring in Lifetime's upcoming Ripped From the Headlines movie, "NEIGHBOR IN THE WINDOW," premiering @8pm on February 8th. Her character in the movie has a condition known as False Victim Syndrome, the fabrication of victimhood for a variety of reasons such as to justify abuse of others, to manipulate others, a coping strategy or attention seeking.

When upbeat, outgoing Karen Morgan (Jamie-Lynn Sigler), her husband Scott and their young son relocate to Washington for Scott's job, Karen looks forward to starting a new life. She soon meets Lisa Beasley (Jennifer Lyon), her beautiful charming neighbor. The two women seem to really understand each other and quickly bond. But Lisa soon starts lying to Karen-and about Karen-in strange ways, ways that make it look to Karen's other neighbors, to her son's teacher and, eventually, to the police, as if Karen is harassing Lisa. Lisa cleverly sets herself up as Karen's victim, until every aspect of Karen's new life starts to unravel. Lisa adds fuel to the fire by claiming that Karen has physically attacked her. Karen tries fighting back. She discovers that Lisa has an actual condition called "False Victim Syndrome" and works hard to clear her own name. But she doesn't realize how desperate and cunning Lisa is-until things come to a shocking head. Then Karen only has one slim shot at saving herself.
