Lifetime Television Announces Production of the Lifetime Original Movie 'Custody' (Working Title), Starring Rob Morrow ('Numb3rs'), James Denton ('Desperate Housewives') and Kay Panabaker (Warner Bros. 'Nancy Drew')

LOS ANGELES, June 21 -- Lifetime Television has greenlit the Lifetime Original Movie "Custody" (working title), the poignant story of a widowed college professor who risks losing custody of his 13-year-old stepdaughter. Though he has raised her as his own, her biological father suddenly reappears and wants her back. The telefilm stars Rob Morrow ("Numb3rs") as the stepfather, James Denton ("Desperate Housewives") as the biological father and Kay Panabaker (Warner Bros. "Nancy Drew") as the daughter. "Custody" (wt) will premiere in September 2007 on Lifetime Television.

In "Custody," when Amanda (Panabaker) lost her mother, her stepfather David (Morrow), a middle-class college professor, raised her as his own. In an instant, their perfect world is quickly turned upside down when Amanda's biological father, John Sullivan (Denton), a wealthy entrepreneur, returns to claim the daughter that he left behind. Unaware that David is not her biological father, Amanda is both angry and confused when she learns the truth. John is determined to win Amanda's affection by showing her the possibility of an affluent lifestyle, as David continues to show her that being a parent means much more than sharing DNA.

"It's truly unique for us to develop material with not one, but two, male leads and we are thrilled to have cast two popular television stars such as James Denton and Rob Morrow," Libby Beers, Senior Vice President, Original Movies, Lifetime Television. Adding, "This is a compelling story about an extremely bright young girl torn between two fathers who both love her and the choices she has to make."

Rob Morrow currently stars as Don Epps on the CBS series "Numb3rs." Morrow is best known for his portrayal of Dr. Joel Fleischman on the hit television series "Northern Exposure."

His feature film credits include the Academy Award(R) nominated film "Quiz Show," "Mother," "Last Dance," "Into My Heart," "The Emperor's Club" and "The Guru." Morrow also starred in "Maze," an independent feature that he wrote, directed and produced.

James Denton just completed his third season starring as Mike Delfino on the hit ABC series "Desperate Housewives." His other television credits include starring roles in "The Pretender," "Philly" and "Threat Matrix." Denton recently wrapped production on the feature film "Tortured" alongside Jon Cryer and Laurence Fishburne.

Kay Panabaker is currently starring in the soon-to-be released Warner Bros. feature film "Nancy Drew." Her additional film credits include "Monsters, Inc." and "Dead Heat."
