GINA GERSHON TO HEADLINE MOVIE PROJECT BASED ON BEST-SELLING ANN RULE CRIME NOVEL EVERYTHING SHE EVER WANTED

RYAN McPARTLIN, VICTOR GARBER and RACHEL BLANCHARD Co-Star in Two-Night Miniseries Event Premiering in August on Lifetime Movie Network

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 3, 2009) � Get caught in a web of murder and lies as Lifetime Movie Network begins production on the film adaptation of one of Ann Rule's most popular crime novels, Everything She Ever Wanted. Gina Gershon (Showgirls, Face/Off), Ryan McPartlin (TV's Living with Fran, TV's Chuck),Victor Garber (TV's Alias, Milk) and Rachel Blanchard (TV's Clueless, TV's 7th Heaven) will star in the two-night, mini-series event. Inspired by the true story of a Southern husband and wife whose storybook wedding signals the beginning of a nightmare marriage that is ultimately upended by greed and violence, Everything She Ever Wanted will premiere this August on Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime's sister network and the second highest rated women's channel.

ABOUT EVERYTHING SHE EVER WANTED

With her younger husband, Tom (McPartlin), by her side, Pat Allanson (Gershon) is determined to become part of Atlanta's elite high society. When she convinces him to spend all of his money on a lavish Southern plantation, Tom is pushed to his financial limits. He is forced to ask his estranged mother for money and to confront his disapproving father (Garber). But, nothing is ever enough to satisfy Pat's overwhelming greed, and, soon, her insatiable thirst for power and status reaches a dangerous pitch. It seems that no one, not even her own sister (Blanchard), is safe when Pat Allanson doesn't get her way.

ABOUT THE CAST

Gina Gershon grew up in Southern California and developed a love of acting early in life. She got her big break in Pretty in Pink and from there secured a role in the Tom Cruise starrer Cocktail. Later, Gershon earned critical success for her portrayal of Nancy Sinatra in the television film Sinatra and, in 1995, became a bona fide celebrity following her performance in Showgirls.
