NEW YORK, February 5, 2007 � Emmy, Tony, and Golden Globe winning actress Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds, Angels in America) stars in Oxygen�s newest original film, The Robber Bride, premiering Saturday, March 3rd at 8p.m. Adapted from the novel by best-selling author Margaret Atwood and produced by Working Title Television and Shaftesbury Films, the made for television movie depicts the story of three female friends who are joined by their hatred for a shrewd and deceitful woman (Parker) who befriended and betrayed all of them by stealing their money, men or children.

Parker plays Zenia Arden, a manipulative femme fatale who disappears suddenly, raising the suspicions of an investigator who delves into her past and finds that her former friends Roz, Tony and Charis all had good cause to want her dead. As the facts emerge, it becomes clear that Zenia systematically took something all three women held dear leading to the question did one of her spurned friends take her life as the ultimate revenge?

�The Robber Bride is an intelligent story that will unfold beautifully on screen, especially with an actress as talented as Mary-Louise Parker," said Debby Beece, Oxygen President of Programming and Marketing. "It's great to be collaborating again with gifted storytellers like Working Title."

The Robber Bride marks the second project for Oxygen and Working Title. The production company was also behind the network's first original movie, A Tale of Two Wives, starring Cheryl Hines and Peter Gallagher in 2003.

A Golden Globe, Emmy and Tony Award winner and two-time Emmy and SAG nominee, Mary-Louise Parker has a diverse career in movies, television and on stage. Parker is currently starring in her Golden Globe Award-winning role of Nancy Botwin in the Showtime series Weeds. She is also the recipient of a 2003 Golden Globe and a 2003-2004 Emmy Award for her role in the highly acclaimed HBO mini-series Angels In America. Parker�s film credits include Fried Green Tomatoes, Grand Canyon, Reckless, Boys on the Side, The Client, Saved!, Romance & Cigarettes, Naked in New York, and Bullets over Broadway among others.

An accomplished stage actress, Parker�s theater credits include Proof, for which she received the 2001 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play, Prelude to a Kiss, How I Learned To Drive, Communicating Doors, Bus Stop, Four Dogs and a Bone and The Art of Success.

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than 35 volumes of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction and is perhaps best known for her novels, which include The Edible Woman (1970), The Handmaid�s Tale (1983), The Robber Bride (1994), Alias Grace (1996), The Blind Assassin (2000) and Oryx and Crake (2003). Ms. Atwood�s The Penelopiad, a retelling of The Odyssey, was released in the fall of 2005 and a collection of mini-fictions, The Tent, was published in the winter of 2006. Her most recent publication is Moral Disorder, a collection of short stories.

Simon Wright serves as executive producer for Working Title TV, and Christina Jennings and Scott Garvie executive produce for Shaftesbury Films. David Evans directs (Mysterious Creatures). The adapted screenplay was written by Tassie Cameron (Would Be Kings, Cake). In addition to Parker, Oxygen has cast Shawn Doyle (Big Love) as John; Wendy Crewson (Air Force One; 24) as Roz; Susan Lynch (Enduring Love; Waking Ned Divine) as Charis; Amanda Root (Jane Eyre) as Tony; and Greg Bryk (A History of Violence) as Henry.
