THE TRUE STORY OF A DEVIOUS KILLER AND THE AVERAGE WOMAN WHO DID WHAT THE POLICE COULDN'T DO

ALLY SHEEDY, SEAN PATRICK FLANERY, NIA PEEPLES AND ROCK LEGEND MEAT LOAF ADAY STAR IN 'CITIZEN JANE,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERING SEPTEMBER 5

A terrible crime is made all the more unfathomable when the least likely suspect is accused, and a woman must put aside her grief to aid the police before the chance at justice is lost forever. These are the circumstances in which one extraordinary woman finds herself entwined in "Citizen Jane," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie premiering Saturday, September 5 (9/8c) which tells the true story of the lone woman who refused to let a killer escape, even at the risk of her own life. Ally Sheedy � she of the iconic 'Brat Pack' films � Sean Patrick Flanery ("The Dead Zone"), Nia Peeples ("The Young and the Restless") and world-renowned musician Meat Loaf Aday bring the harrowing true-crime tale to life.

Jane Alexander (Sheedy) had it all: A wonderful family, personal and financial success and a deep romance with Tom O'Donnell (Flanery). A family friend for 25 years prior to their romance, Tom helped Jane cope with the death of her husband, and captivated her with his charming, unflappable personality.

But Jane's picturesque life came crashing down around her the morning she received the news that her beloved aunt had been murdered. Slowly, astonishingly, the evidence began to point to the last person Jane would ever believe capable of such an act: Tom. As she began to comprehend the unfathomable, the depth of his deceit grew, as she realized he had fled with tens of thousands of dollars of her money, forcing her to sell her possessions and move into a dilapidated old house. With few clues to Tom's location and with moral support from her dear friend, Evelyn (Peeples), Jane set out to bring her Aunt's killer to justice. Along the way, she was aided by the equally determined Detective Jack Morris (Aday), one of the few law enforcement officers who believed in her.

Their investigation did not go unnoticed, however, and Tom O'Donnell would not allow himself to be caught easily. Seeing as his original plan was to murder Jane as well, he saw no reason not to carry out this act, thus removing the last obstacle to the life he had plotted and murdered to obtain. With everything � and almost everyone � telling her that her quest was futile, and with a remorseless killer determined to take any action necessary to remain free, time was not on Jane Alexander's side.
