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.

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.
