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.

A bold anthology of five short films exploring the impact of breast cancer on people's lives, Five uses humor and drama to focus on the effect breast cancer and its different stages of diagnosis have on relationships and the way women perceive themselves while searching for strength, comfort, medical breakthroughs and, ultimately, a cure. Five's cast includes Academy Award(R) nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April), Rosario Dawson (Sin City), Lyndsy Fonseca (How I Met Your Mother), Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love), Josh Holloway (Lost), Taylor Kinney (The Vampire Diaries), Jenifer Lewis (The Princess and the Frog), Jennifer Morrison (House M.D.), Kathy Najimy (WALL-E), Golden Globe(R) Award winner Bob Newhart (Horrible Bosses), Annie Potts (Law & Order: SVU), Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends), Emmy(R) and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk), and Emmy nominees Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love).

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).
