Lifetime Original Movie "Justice for Natalee Holloway" to Premiere May 9, Followed by Sneak Peek of True-Life Series "Vanished with Beth Holloway"

Vanished with Beth Holloway to Begin Airing in its Regularly Scheduled Time Period on Wednesday, May 11, at 9 PM ET/PT.

LOS ANGELES (April 11, 2011) - Lifetime Television's Original Movie, Justice for Natalee Holloway, a follow-up to the Lifetime Movie Network original Natalee Holloway, will premiere on Monday, May 9, at 9 pm ET/PT.

Immediately following Justice for Natalee Holloway at 11 pm ET/PT, Lifetime will debut a sneak peek of the true-life series, Vanished with Beth Holloway. The one-hour docu-reality program explores first-hand real-life mysteries of families who have been victimized by unsolved abductions, disappearances and unspeakable crimes, with Holloway offering a uniquely empathetic point of view to the loved ones that have been left behind. Lifetime has ordered 10 episodes of Vanished with Beth Holloway, which will begin airing in its regularly scheduled time period on Wednesday, May 11, at 9 pm ET/PT.


As a follow up to the original movie Natalee Holloway, the Lifetime Original Movie Justice for Natalee Holloway closes in on the ongoing mystery of what exactly happened to the Alabama teenager who in 2005 mysteriously disappeared during her senior class trip to Aruba. Four years after Natalee went missing, Joran van der Sloot (Stephen Amell, The Vampire Diaries), one of the last persons to see her alive, continues to torment her grieving mother Beth by providing false information about Natalee's fate, yet denying any responsibility for what happened to her. Tracy Pollan (Natalee Holloway, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) reprises her role as Beth Holloway.

Growing more arrogant about his professed innocence and finding himself increasingly in debt as his life and gambling habits spiral out of control, van der Sloot does the unthinkable by demanding $250,000 from Beth to reveal the exact location of Natalee's remains. Intent on bringing her daughter's alleged murderer to justice, Beth once again partners with the FBI and other authorities to find and arrest him. But before they can, the saga takes another twisted turn when van der Sloot allegedly murders a young Peruvian woman on the 5th anniversary of Natalee's tragic disappearance.

Justice for Natalee Holloway also stars Scott Cohen (Love and Other Drugs, The Other Woman) as John Kelly, with a special appearance by Grant Show (Natalee Holloway, Melrose Place) as Jug Twitty. Justice for Natalee Holloway is produced by Sony Pictures Television. Judith Verno (Natalee Holloway, The Craigslist Killer) and Frank von Zerneck (Natalee Holloway, We Were the Mulvaneys) are executive producers. Stephen T. Kay (The Craigslist Killer, Friday Night Lights) directed the teleplay written by Teena Booth (Natalee Holloway and Amish Grace).


Lifetime's gripping true-life series Vanished with Beth Holloway examines some of America's most disturbing unsolved cases as told to Holloway by the families who've been victimized by mysterious abductions or disappearances of loved ones and unspeakable crimes. Now left with little hope, they turn to Holloway, who continues to live a mother's worst nightmare as she carries on her tireless quest to uncover the mystery surrounding her daughter Natalee's tragic 2005 disappearance. A passionate advocate for these families, Beth offers her unique insight into each case, dedicating her intensely personal point-of-view and empathy to family and loved ones seeking answers. Each episode will profile real-life mysteries, giving detailed accounts of the events described by those closest to the victims as Beth goes on location to conduct key interviews, introduce important facts and give the audience a clear understanding of pivotal moments in each harrowing case.

Vanished with Beth Holloway is produced by Jupiter Entertainment, with Stephen Land (City Confidential, Sons of Guns) serving as executive producer, along with Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Colleen Conway of Lifetime Television.
