Molly Shannon ('Year of the Dog,' 'Saturday Night Live') and Steven Weber ('Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,' 'Wings') Star in the Lifetime Original Movie 'More of Me'

The Quirky Tale of a Woman Who Discovers a Unique Way of Coping With the Stress and Demands of Modern Life Premiering Saturday, November 17 on Lifetime

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11 -- Molly Shannon ("Year of the Dog") and Steven Weber ("Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip") star in "More of Me," a whimsical, lighthearted and touching comedy about an overworked and overextended wife, mom and career woman who splits into three separate versions of herself with distinct personalities in order to manage her chaotic life. "More of Me" will premiere Saturday, November 17 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.

In "More of Me," Alice McGrath (Shannon) is a modern woman torn between her desire for perfection in her three worlds: as an environmental activist; as the perfect mother to rambunctious six-year-old twins; and as a loving wife to her husband Rex (Weber), a civil engineer on the rise. When Alice finally becomes overwhelmed and hits her breaking point, she splits into three separate versions of herself -- each taking over a different aspect of her life. Her emotional side is focused on being the perfect wife; her rational side steps in to take control of her career; and her conscience becomes the quintessential selfless mother. At first, Alice revels in her newfound freedom, but the limitations of her three personalities start to manifest when the three different "personas" begin to wreak havoc in each of her worlds, and she realizes that her sum is better than her individual parts.

Molly Shannon is best known as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live" from 1995 to 2001, developing such memorable characters as Sally O'Malley and performing parodies of Courtney Love and Meredith Vieira. She has successfully segued from television to film. Shannon received critical acclaim for her starring role in the feature film "Year of the Dog." Her most recent film credits include "Evan Almighty," "Shut Up & Sing," "Little Man," "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" and a cameo in "Scary Movie 4." Shannon's other film credits include "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," "Analyze This," "Happiness," "Never Been Kissed" and "A Night at the Roxbury." She also starred in "Superstar," featuring her own popular "SNL" character, Mary Katherine Gallagher. She is currently filming the NBC comedy pilot "Kath & Kim." Shannon was last seen in the off-beat comedy, "Cracking Up." This film marks the second time she worked with Steven Weber when the two starred in the telefilm "12 Days of Christmas Eve" in 2004. She also appeared in the remake of "The Music Man" and guest starred on "Will & Grace" and "Sex and the City," among others.

Steven Weber most recently starred in the NBC series "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and guest starred in the Lifetime series "Side Order of Life" as Cell Phone Man. He starred in the series "Once and Again," "The D.A." and the long-running comedy "Wings." He has also guest starred in "Law & Order: SVU," "Monk" and "Will & Grace" and in the television miniseries "The Kennedys of Massachusetts," "Nightmares and Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King," "Desperation," and "The Shining," both also from Stephen King. Additional television movies include "Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical" and "The Twelve Days of Christmas Eve." Weber's feature film credits include "Leaving Las Vegas," "Timecode 2000," "Single White Female," "At First Sight" and "Hamburger Hill." No stranger to the stage, Weber took over Matthew Broderick's role on Broadway in Mel Brooks' smash hit musical "The Producers."

"More of Me" is produced by Jaffe/Braunstein Films in association with Andrea Simon Entertainment for Lifetime Television. Executive producers are Howard Braunstein, Michael Jaffe (Lifetime's "Write & Wrong" and "Not Like Everyone Else") and Andrea Simon ("Hurricane Mary"). Robyn Snyder (Lifetime's "A Life Interrupted") is co-executive producer. Daisy von Sherler Mayer ("Madeline," "Party Girl") directs from a script written by Kelli Pryor ("A Stranger's Heart").
