Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig April Fool’s Lifetime Movie No Joke

Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell made a Lifetime movie.

I’m sorry, I meant to say, “Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell made a Lifetime movie.”

News of the movie originally leaked on April first of this year. Now, after a few “is it real or fake?” thrills,  it seems we have our answer. IMDB describes the synopsis as, “A successful couple house and care for a pregnant woman with the hopes of adopting her unborn child.” After watching the trailer, I have no idea whether this is parody. Wiig, Ferrell and the rest of the featured cast seem to play it pretty close to the genuine article. I’m so confused. I can’t wait.

I’ll put this out there – I have never seen a movie or watched a television show on Lifetime, so I have no idea what to expect. I have my ignorant assumptions based solely on what I’ve seen on the Hallmark Channel. Like I said – ignorant. But one YouTube autoplay later, and damn, I am hooked on UnREAL. No news yet on when Dwayne Johnson’s Lifetime movie will begin production.

A Deadly Adoption reportedly airs on Saturday, June 20 at 8:00pm on LIFE.
