John Stamos ('ER') to Star in and Produce Lifetime Original Movie 'Killing Mr. Kissel' (Working Title), Based on the Shocking True Story of the Deaths of Two Multi-Millionaire Brothers and the Trail of Money, Mansions and Mayhem They Left Behind

Robin Tunney (CBS' 'The Mentalist') Co-Stars as Nancy Kissell

LOS ANGELES, June 6 -- John Stamos ("ER") is set to star in and produce the Lifetime Original Movie "Killing Mr. Kissel" (wt), based on the shocking true story of two multi-millionaire brothers who both married the women of their dreams and wound up dead. "Killing Mr. Kissel" will premiere this November on Lifetime Television.

In making the announcement Tanya Lopez, Senior Vice President, Original Movies, Lifetime Networks, said, "People are fascinated by the private lives of the rich and there is a part of all of us that wants to have the lifestyle that money brings." She added, "While entertaining, this story -- about one family's quest for the American dream that spiraled out of control -- also reminds us to 'be careful what you wish for.'"

In "Killing Mr. Kissel," real estate mogul Andrew Kissel (Stamos) marries sporty blond ski instructor, Hayley Wolff (Gretchen Egolf, "Journeyman"), while his younger brother Rob Kissel (Anson Mount, "Conviction"), a New York investment banker, marries social climber Nancy Keeshin (Robin Tunney). On the surface, it seems that both the Kissel brothers are starting idyllic families. After Rob moves his family to Hong Kong for a promotion, Nancy grows to resent his long work hours. In retaliation, Nancy begins a torrid affair and ultimately kills Rob by drugging him and bludgeoning him to death, igniting worldwide media frenzy. Years later, Andrew is caught embezzling millions of dollars to support his increasingly lavish lifestyle and drug addiction. With the courts breathing down his neck, former business partners turning on him, and a frustrated and embarrassed wife filing for divorce, Andrew is found dead in the basement of his Greenwich mansion. The question remains: was Andrew murdered by one of his many enemies, or did he arrange it himself in order to escape his living nightmare?

John Stamos is a successful actor/producer with a career that has spanned more than 25 years. Currently, he can be seen in the long-running NBC drama "ER" as Dr. Tony Gates. Stamos most recently starred in the television films "A Raisin in the Sun" and "Wedding Wars." For eight seasons, he starred as Uncle Jesse on the popular television series "Full House."
