ROB LOWE STARS AS CHARISMATIC POLICE OFFICER-TURNED NOTORIOUS MURDER SUSPECT IN "DREW PETERSON: UNTOUCHABLE," PREMIERING JANUARY 21ST ON LIFETIME

Kaley Cuoco Also Stars in True-Life Crime Thriller

LOS ANGELES, CA (December 8, 2011) - Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award nominee Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation) and Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory) star in the riveting Lifetime Original Movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable, premiering Saturday, January 21, 2012, at 8PM ET/PT. Based on a true story, the film follows the fascinating tale of police officer Drew Peterson's fall from grace after the mysterious disappearance of his fourth wife.

Charming Chicago-area officer Drew Peterson (Lowe) seemed virtually "untouchable" in more ways than one when it came to his womanizing ways, having been married three times before landing the eye and affection of Stacy Cales (Cuoco), a woman half his age. As Peterson's relationship with Stacy blossoms, his relationship with third wife Kathleen Savio (Cara Buono, Mad Men) unravels in a bitter divorce -- until Kathleen is inexplicably found dead in an empty bathtub. Soon after making Stacy his fourth wife and having their first child, Peterson's jealousy and controlling ways begin to strain their marriage. Suddenly Stacy disappears, leaving her two children, and Peterson's older children behind. Peterson insists that Stacy left him for another man but in the wake of her disappearance, new questions are raised about Kathleen's death and her case is re-opened, drawing national media attention to Peterson and the strange cases of Kathleen and Stacy. Peterson seems to bask in the media attention, professing his innocence and announcing his engagement to yet another younger woman. But when authorities take a closer look at the circumstances surrounding both cases, a different kind of spotlight is placed on him as more questions arise. Are Kathleen's death and Stacy's still-unknown whereabouts just a tragic coincidence? Or is there more there than meets the eye?

Multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actor Lowe currently stars in NBC's comedy series Parks and Recreation. Lowe is well known for his role on NBC's hit drama, The West Wing, which won a record four consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series. Lowe's performance in the show garnered him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, as well as two Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV-Series - Drama. He was nominated three times for the Screen Actors Guild Award, winning twice. Lowe recently appeared on Showtime's Californication and starred on ABC's Brothers and Sisters. His feature film credits include the iconic movies The Outsiders, St. Elmo's Fire, About Last Night and Bad Influence, as well as the blockbuster comedies Wayne's World, Tommy Boy and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Some recent films also include The Invention of Lying, Thank You for Smoking and Stir of Echoes: The Dead Speak as well as the upcoming I Melt With You and Knife Fight. In spring of 2011 Lowe added the title "author" to his resume with the release of his memoir, Stories I Only Tell My Friends. Complete with adolescent anecdotes, Lowe shares intimate personal memories as he recalls his encounters, experiences and the audition that changed his life forever. The book was an instant New York Times best seller and enjoyed consecutive weeks in the top four on the paper's best seller list.

Cuoco currently stars in CBS's highly rated comedy The Big Bang Theory and has been tapped to host the upcoming People's Choice Awards. She also served as the host of the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. Cuoco made a name for herself at the age of 16 when she starred as 'Bridget Hennessey,' the late John Ritter's daughter in the ABC sitcom 8 Simple Rules. Cuoco also headlined the Lifetime Original Movie, To Be Fat Like Me, the ABC Family telefims Crimes of Fashion and The Hallow, and the NBC miniseries, 10.5.
