Emmy Award Winner KATHY BAKER and SHIRI APPLEBY Star in this Spring's Hottest Psychological Mind-Bender

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 2, 2009) � April showers turn into a dark and threatening storm of mind games, manipulation and money as Lifetime Television premieres the mystery-thriller Unstable, starring Shiri Appleby (TV's Roswell and ER, Charlie Wilson's War) and Kathy Baker (Last Chance Harvey, TV's Picket Fences). Appleby is "Megan," a wealthy young woman who, after recovering from a nervous breakdown, falls for the man she believes to be Mr. Right.

Just as she begins to piece her shattered life together and reclaim her sense of self, she meets the seemingly perfect man. Megan's family, particularly her mother (Baker), is thrilled to see her thriving in what everyone perceives to be a healthy and loving relationship. But, when strange things begin to happen, Megan takes a dangerous plunge into the darkest corners of her mind, finding herself teetering on the edge of sanity. Trapped in a web of deceit and crippling mind games, Megan must cling to her loved ones � who may, in fact, be the very people driving her to madness.
