Lifetime Movie Network Presents the Powerful True Life Story 'Little Girl Lost: The Delimar Vera Story,' Starring Judy Reyes, Ana Ortiz and A Martinez

NEW YORK, May 15 -- Looking to match last year's record-setting summer when "Army Wives" became the most successful series in the network's 24-year history, Lifetime Television will be serving up another diverse programming slate this season, beginning with a weekend-long Memorial Day movie festival.

Buoyed by robust double-digit growth among W18-49 and W18-34, Lifetime's hot weather schedule reflects its growing dominance in all programming genres, from movies and drama to reality. On the series side, the summer features the second season returns of 2007's #1 new cable drama among women, "Army Wives" (June 8), and the popular "How to Look Good Naked" reality series, hosted by Carson Kressley (July).

Upcoming Lifetime Original Movies, the top-rated original movies on basic cable among W18-49, W25-54 and W18+, include "The Tenth Circle," an adaptation of Jodi Picoult's powerful best-selling novel starring Kelly Preston and Ron Eldard (June 28). Later this summer, Lifetime Original Movies will feature Tatum O'Neal (August 2), Valerie Bertinelli -- in her first-ever Lifetime original production -- along with platinum-selling recording artist Joanna "JoJo" Levesque (August 9), and Chelsea Hobbs (August 16).

The #2 women's channel Lifetime Movie Network will premiere the Original Movie "Little Girl Lost: The Delimar Vera Story" (August 17), starring Judy Reyes (Scrubs), Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty) and A Martinez (General Hospital). Lifetime Movie Network, which has posted eight straight months of household ratings gains, will celebrate its 10th anniversary in June.

Said Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks: "These shows represent the first wave of our new 2008-09 programming slate, including the upcoming sixth season premiere of 'Project Runway' in November. With such diverse fare as the gripping stories of 'Army Wives,' the emotional empowerment of 'How to Look Good Naked' and compelling movies on both networks, we're giving viewers some great summertime entertainment."
