ONE OF THE MOST TALKED ABOUT BESTSELLERS OF ALL TIME, V.C. ANDREWS' ICONIC "FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC," COMES TO LIFETIME JANUARY 18

All-star cast includes Heather Graham, Academy Award(R), Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award-winner Ellen Burstyn, Kiernan Shipka, Mason Dye and Dylan Bruce

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 14, 2013) - Based on V.C. Andrews' controversial book that quickly became a cult classic, the Lifetime Original Movie Flowers in the Attic premieres on Saturday, January 18, 2014, at 8pm PT/ET. Starring Heather Graham (Drugstore Cowboy), Academy Award(R), Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award-winner Ellen Burstyn (Political Animals), Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Mason Dye (Secret Diary of an American Cheerleader) and Dylan Bruce (Orphan Black), Flowers in the Attic is the gothic tale of four siblings who are locked away to live in an attic after a family tragedy suddenly removes them from their perfect childhood.

Flowers in the Attic weaves the twisted story of the Dollanganger kids who, after the unexpected death of their father, are convinced by their mother Corrine (Graham) to stay hidden in the attic of their wealthy grandparents' mansion so she can reclaim the family fortune. But as her visits begin to wane after she becomes involved with a new husband (Bruce), the children endure unimaginable treatment at the hands of their ruthless grandmother Olivia Foxworth (Burstyn). As years go by and the eldest children Cathy (Shipka) and Christopher (Dye) come of age, both emotionally and physically, their family's sordid past entraps them further as they look to each other for comfort.

Andrews' first published novel, Flowers in the Attic was an instant hit when it was released in 1979, topping bestsellers lists in just two weeks. Captivating millions of readers worldwide, the book launched a series of five novels about the Dollanganger and Foxworth families. Andrews' novels are famous for their twisted, rags-to-riches family tales that explore why people love to hate and hurt each other. Today, there are 106 million copies of her books that have been published in 95 countries.

Flowers in the Attic is produced by Front Street Pictures, Inc. for Lifetime Pictures. The movie is executive produced by Merideth Finn (The Rite) and Michele Weiss (Little Children) of Cue the Dog Productions, along with Charles W. Fries of Fries Film Company, Inc. Rob Sharenow, Tanya Lopez and Lisa Hamilton-Daly are executive producing for Lifetime. Harvey Kahn (Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story) produces the film for Front Street Pictures. The teleplay is by Kayla Alpert (Up All Night), and Deborah Chow (The High Cost of Living) directs.
