EMMY(R) WINNER ERIC MCCORMACK, MATT BARR AND LOLITA DAVIDOVICH STAR IN LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE "ROMEO KILLER: THE CHRIS PORCO STORY," PREMIERING SATURDAY, MARCH 23

Inspired by the True Story of a College Kid who Prosecutors Claim Turned into a Cold-Blooded Murderer and Shockingly Attacked his Own Parents

NEW YORK, NY (February 6, 2013) - Emmy(R) Award winner Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), Matt Barr (Hatfields & McCoys) and Lolita Davidovich (Gods and Monsters) will star in the Lifetime Original Movie Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story. Inspired by the true story of a handsome young college student who became the prime suspect in the shocking murder of his father, Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story will make its world premiere on Saturday, March 23 at 8p.m. ET/PT.

The quiet town of Delmar, New York, was considered anything but dangerous... until 21-year-old Chris Porco (Barr) was accused of brutally murdering his father Peter and disfiguring his mother Joan (Davidovich) in a savage axe attack, a claim made all the more shocking when the case's lead detective Joe Sullivan (McCormack) believed Joan had identified Chris as her attacker. Weeks after the crime, however, Joan would refute Detective Sullivan's story, while the town of Delmar and many of Chris' former friends and girlfriends would also rally to his defense, despite Sullivan's fierce mission to prove his guilt. Prosecutors believed that beneath Chris' picture-perfect facade was a devious and cunning sociopath who would stop at nothing to keep his lies hidden. In the end, he was convicted of second-degree murder of his father, but many in the town of Delmar firmly believe the jury wrongfully convicted an innocent young man.

Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story is produced by Romeo Kill Productions Inc. for Lifetime. Executive producer is Ilene Kahn Power (Who Is Clark Rockefeller) of Kahn Power Pictures, producer is Harvey Kahn (Abducted: The Carlina White Story). Norma Bailey (An Officer and a Murderer) is director and co-executive producer. The film was written by Edithe Swensen (Who Is Clark Rockefeller).
