LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE "SHE MADE THEM DO IT," STARRING JENNA DEWAN TATUM, SET TO PREMIERE DECEMBER 29, 2012

Movie Based on a True Story Also Co-stars Mackenzie Phillips

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 9, 2012) - Lifetime will premiere the Original Movie She Made Them Do It, starring Jenna Dewan Tatum (American Horror Story, Step Up) and Mackenzie Phillips (NYPD Blue, One Day at a Time), on Saturday, December 29, at 8:00pm ET/PT. The riveting film is based a true story of convicted felon Sarah Pender, who after being found guilty of masterminding a double murder, escaped from maximum security prison to become one of the most notorious women ever to top the list of America's Most Wanted.

She Made Them Do It follows the twisted life of Sarah Pender (Dewan Tatum) a charismatic, intelligent young woman who would become one of the country's most sought after fugitives. Purportedly on the road to a productive and successful life after being abandoned by her mother at the age of three, Sarah enrolls in college. While she was dealing drugs out of her home with her boyfriend Rick Hull as a means to pay for school, Sarah's two roommates are tragically shot to death in what appeared to be a deal gone bad. Although she claimed she was not home when the murders occurred, all evidence pointed to Sarah and Rick, and she was eventually found guilty of masterminding the double murder and sentenced to 110 years in prison. A model inmate studying law in hopes of appealing her case while also helping fellow convicts with their cases, Sarah becomes increasingly desperate as her appeals continue to be denied. At the end of her wits, she uses her charm to seduce a prison guard and convince former cellmate Jamie Long (Phillips) to help her escape, leading authorities on an intense search that attracts national attention and puts her on the top of the list of America's Most Wanted.

She Made Them Do It is produced by Front Street Pictures Inc. and They Made Us Do It Entertainment. Brenda Friend (Joan of Arc, Deck the Halls) and Greg Klein (Lifetime's America's Most Wanted) serve as executive producers and Harvey Kahn (Lifetime's Restless Virgins and Abducted: The Carlina White Story) produces. Grant Harvey (Heartland and LMN's Held Hostage) directs from a script written by Gary Tieche (Medium and LMN's Seven Deadly Sins).
