Marcia Gay Harden to Star in LOVE YOU TO DEATH on Lifetime
Lifetime has greenlit Love You to Death starring Emmy nominee and Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden (Code Black) in the twisted story of a controlling mother and her seemingly sick daughter that ends in a murder no one could have predicted. This is a re-teaming for Sony Pictures Television and Lifetime with director Alex Kalymnios, who directed Lifetime's highly rated CLEVELAND ABDUCTION in 2015.
Inspired by a true story, Love You to Death is a shocking tale of a mother and daughter who are nothing like they seem, their tumultuous relationship ending in a brutal murder. Camile (Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden, 50 Shades features, Code Black) and Esme are well-known in their community - Esme as the sickly, child-like wheelchair-bound daughter, and Camile as the perfect caretaker and mother. They seem a perfect pair until Camile is found stabbed to death in her home, and Esme has vanished, believed to be kidnapped by the killer. But when Esme is found, a terrible secret emerges. Esme was not kidnapped. Instead she ran away with her boyfriend after working with him to murder Camile. More than that, Esme is perfectly healthy, mentally and physically, and has been a victim of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, forced to believe she was ill by her controlling, abusive mother.
Love You to Death is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment Television. Executive producers are Jordan Davis and John Davis. Alex Kalymnios directs from a script written by Anthony Jaswinski
