LOS ANGELES, CA (February 4, 2013) - Lifetime explores the fast-changing landscape of teenage sexuality at a prestigious academy that was rocked by a shocking sex scandal in the Lifetime Original Movie, RestlessVirgins, premiering Saturday,March 9 at 8pm ET/PT.

Restless Virgins uncovers a world where privileged teens, thriving on exploitation and manipulation, run wild at a New England prep school. The film follows Emily (Marano), a scholarship student and the editor of the school newspaper who struggles with the daily stresses of high school and adolescence: fitting in, getting into the right college and trying to find love. But when Emily discovers five senior members of the lacrosse team made a sex tape with a classmate, she blows the lid off the controversy by releasing the tape virally. The scandal made national headlines that shocked America, leading the elite school to expel multiple students, including a U.S. Senator's son.

Restless Virgins is produced by Scandal Street Productions for Lifetime. The film is executive produced by Michael Roiff (Waitress) and produced by Harvey Kahn (She Made Them Do It).
