LISA EDELSTEIN, SARA PAXTON AND JUSTIN BRUENING STAR IN LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE "BLUE-EYED BUTCHER"

Film Based on a True Story of a Texas Housewife Convicted of Murdering Her Husband to Premiere March 3

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 9, 2012) - 2011 People's Choice Award winner Lisa Edelstein (House, The Good Wife) swaps out her stethoscope for legal briefs as she plays tough Texas prosecutor Kelly Siegler in the Lifetime Original Movie, Blue-Eyed Butcher, which will make its world premiere on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 8:00PM ET/PT. Based on a true story, the Sony Pictures Television distributed film, co-starring Sara Paxton (Superhero Movie, Shark Night 3D) and Justin Bruening (Knight Rider, Ringer), follows the story of Susan Wright (Paxton), a beautiful young wife and mother of two who violently kills her husband in their Houston home after years of alleged abuse.

Dubbed by the media as the "Blue-Eyed Butcher," Susan Wright appeared to have a fairytale life -- an adoring husband Jeff (Bruening), two beautiful kids, and close family and friends. But six years into their marriage, the fairytale crumbles when Jeff is found dead and buried in the backyard of their suburban home. The close-knit community is shocked as police accuse Susan of pre-meditated murder - luring her husband into the bedroom, tying him up and violently stabbing him almost 200 times before haphazardly cleaning up the crime scene. As Jeff's family reels from the devastating news, Susan begins to mount her aggressive defense -- that she needed to kill Jeff -- out of self-preservation for herself and her children after years of physical and mental abuse. But prosecutor Kelly Siegler is skeptical of her defense and forcefully argues Susan is a cunning, doe-eyed sociopath, who has used her good looks to try to get away with anything in life -- even murder.

Blue-Eyed Butcher is distributed by Sony Pictures Television. Judith Verno (Lifetime's Drew Peterson: Untouchable, Craigslist Killer) and Frank von Zerneck (Lifetime's The Pregnancy Pact, Flirting with Forty) executive produced the film with Stephen Kay (Craigslist Killer, Sons of Anarchy) serving as co-executive producer and director. The script was written by Michael J. Murray.
