Rob Lowe to Star in 'Too Late To Say Goodbye' Based on Best-Selling Novel From Ann Rule

LOS ANGELES, April 22 -- This summer, the heat will reach a blistering high as Lifetime Movie Network debuts the movie adaptation of Ann Rule's best-selling novel, Too Late to Say Goodbye. Rob Lowe (The West Wing, Brothers and Sisters) is set to headline in the project based on the true story of an outwardly charming couple whose deceit and secret affairs result in fatal consequences. Too Late to Say Goodbye will premiere this August on Lifetime Movie Network, Lifetime's sister network and the second highest rated women's channel.


Jenn and Bobby Corbin (Lowe) appear to have the perfect marriage. Wedded bliss, though, is not always what it seems, as Jenn discovers Bobby's affair with a beautiful co-worker. Distraught, Jenn turns to the Internet, where she makes a connection with a charming mystery man. When Jenn is found dead - apparently the result of a devastating suicide - her loving sister insists that Jenn would never have willingly taken her own life and left her children without their mother. Could the killer be her husband, who has some dark secrets of his own, or possibly her online suitor, who may not be exactly the person Jenn had imagined?


Rob Lowe rose to fame in the early 1980s as a member of the legendary "Brat Pack," starring in such contemporary classics as St. Elmo's Fire and About Last Night. He headlined some of the decade's most iconic films including The Outsiders and Youngblood. In 1999, he landed the role of "Sam Seaborn" on the popular television series The West Wing, for which he earned an Emmy(R) Award nomination and two Golden Globe(R) nominations. Currently, Lowe stars on the popular ABC series Brothers and Sisters.


Ann Rule is one of America's foremost true crime writers. Her family has been involved in law enforcement for several generations, and her prolific career as a writer has spanned more than 30 years. During that time, she has published over 1,400 articles and 28 books, the majority of which were based on real-life cases. Rule spends several months researching each of her novels and goes as far as attending the trials and visiting the locations where the crimes have occurred. She has written the definitive book on serial killer Ted Bundy, The Stranger Beside Me, and almost all of the award-winning author's books have been on the New York Times best-seller list.


Too Late to Say Goodbye is produced by Darius Productions in association with Head First Productions for Lifetime Movie Network. Stanley M. Brooks (Prayers for Bobby, The Capture of the Green River Killer) will executive produce along with Jim Head (Gym Teacher: The Movie, Crossroads: A Story of Forgiveness) and producers Damian Ganczewski (Prayers for Bobby, Broken Trail) and Nicholas Tabarrok (Coopers' Camera, Jack and Jill vs. the World). Norma Bailey (The Capture of the Green River Killer) will direct the script from screenwriters Adam Till (Billable Hours, Leo), Fabrizio Filippo (Billable Hours, The Human Kazoo) and Donald Martin (The Christmas Choir, The Staircase Murders).


Lifetime Movie Network is the #2 women's channel in Primetime and Total Day, behind only Lifetime Television. In 1Q'09, the Network posted its most-watched quarter ever in its 10-year history. Lifetime Movie Network's First Quarter '09 Total Day ratings among Women 18+ surpass Discovery, MTV, FX, TLC, Bravo, E!, Food Network, ABC Family, Oxygen, WE, VH-1, Style and SoapNet.
