Brothers and the Trail of Money, Mansions and Mayhem They Left Behind
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 23 -- John Stamos ("ER") and Robin
Tunney ("The Mentalist") star in the Lifetime Original Movie "The Two Mr.
Kissels," based on the shocking true story of two multi-millionaire
brothers who both married the women of their dreams and wound up dead. "The
Two Mr. Kissels" premieres on Saturday, November 15, at 9PM (ET/PT) on
In "The Two Mr. Kissels," 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?
