LIFETIME TO RE-AIR ORIGINAL MOVIE "DREW PETERSON: UNTOUCHABLE," STARRING ROB LOWE, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 11, 2012) - Lifetime will air an encore presentation of the Lifetime Original Movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable, starring Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation) and Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory), this Sunday, September 16th, 2012, at 7:00PM ET/PT. Based on a true story, the film follows the fascinating tale of police officer Drew Peterson's fall from grace after the mysterious disappearance of his fourth wife.

Lifetime's world premiere of Drew Peterson: Untouchable in January earlier this year generated record viewership, averaging 5.8 million Total Viewers, making it cable's most watched original movie in the demo in two years since Lifetime's The Pregnancy Pact in January 2010. The film's debut remains 2012's number one movie telecast across basic cable among Total Viewers, Adults 25-54, Adults 18-49, Women 25-54, Women 18-49, Adults 18+ and Women 18+ (excluding miniseries).

Charming Chicago-area officer Drew Peterson (Lowe) seemed virtually "untouchable" in more ways than one when it came to his womanizing ways, having been married three times before landing the eye and affection of Stacy Cales (Cuoco), a woman half his age. As Peterson's relationship with Stacy blossoms, his relationship with third wife Kathleen Savio (Cara Buono, Mad Men) unravels in a bitter divorce -- until Kathleen is inexplicably found dead in an empty bathtub. Soon after making Stacy his fourth wife and having their first child, Peterson's jealousy and controlling ways begin to strain their marriage. Suddenly Stacy disappears, leaving her two children, and Peterson's older children behind. Peterson insists that Stacy left him for another man but in the wake of her disappearance, new questions are raised about Kathleen's death and her case is re-opened, drawing national media attention to Peterson and the strange cases of Kathleen and Stacy. Peterson seems to bask in the media attention, professing his innocence and announcing his engagement to yet another younger woman. But when authorities take a closer look at the circumstances surrounding both cases, a different kind of spotlight is placed on him as more questions arise. Are Kathleen's death and Stacy's still-unknown whereabouts just a tragic coincidence? Or is there more there than meets the eye?

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, Drew Peterson: Untouchable was executive produced by Judith Verno and produced by Kyle Clark and Lina Wong. Mikael Salomon directed the movie from a script written by Teena Booth, based on the book, Fatal Vows, by Joseph Hosey.
