LOS ANGELES, (August 23, 2011) - Lifetime continues to bring big names and acclaimed talent to the small screen with six all-new original movies set to make their world premieres this October.

Based on the bestselling crime novel, Iris Johansen's The Killing Game follows forensic sculptor Eve Duncan (Laura Prepon, How I Met Your Mother), who 10 years after the disappearance and murder of her seven year old daughter, is contacted by a man claiming to be the child's killer. Taunted by the man's mysterious clues about the case and his threats to kill again, precious memories of her daughter haunt Eve once more. Caught in a web of deceit, she gambles with her own life as she throws herself into her work to finally close the case and bring her daughter's murderer to justice. Iris Johansen's The Killing Game also stars Naomi Judd (Frasier).
