COURTENEY COX DIRECTS AND PRODUCES LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE "TALL HOT BLONDE"

Film Starring GARRET DILLAHUNT and LAURA SAN GIACOMO in Tantalizing True Story about the Dangers of Online Affairs to Premiere June 23

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 30, 2012) - Golden Globe(R) nominee Courteney Cox (Cougar Town, Friends) goes behind the camera and into the director's chair, marking her longform directorial debut, in the Lifetime Original Movie Tall Hot Blonde, premiering Saturday, June 23, 2012, at 8:00PM ET/PT. Distributed by Sony Pictures Television and based on a true story, Tall Hot Blonde follows the life of Thomas Montgomery (Garret Dillahunt, Raising Hope, No Country for Old Men), a married father of two young daughters who gets seduced by the world of online gambling and chat rooms where a virtual romance and sexual obsession ultimately leads to the murder of an innocent man. Cox also appears in the original movie.

Thomas Montgomery, a middle-aged, hard-working family man, finds reprieve from his humdrum life by playing online poker with his buddies. During one of his poker games, he receives an invitation to chat with an 18-year-old girl with the screen name, "Talhotblond." Introducing himself as a younger U.S. Marine "Tommy," they begin an online relationship that quickly develops into a sexual obsession. Sensing Thomas' emotional distance and detachment, his wife Carol (Laura San Giacomo, Just Shoot Me, Pretty Woman) unearths her husband's cyber affair and puts an end to it by revealing to "Talhotblond" that he is not who claims to be, but in reality a married father of two. Infuriated and betrayed by his lies, "Talhotblond" begins to flirt online with Thomas' co-worker, Brian (Brando Eaton, Dexter, The Secret Life of the American Teenager), leading to jealousy and, ultimately, murder. This shocking true story reveals how easily the line between virtual reality and the truth can be blurred when hiding behind a keyboard online.

Tall Hot Blonde is produced by Motion Picture Corporation of America in association with Silver Screen Pictures and distributed by Sony Pictures Television. It is executive produced by Brad Krevoy (Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Taking Chance) Alexandre Coscas and Francisco Gonzalez and is directed by Courteney Cox. Trent Haaga (Damage Control) wrote the screenplay which is based on the documentary "talhotblond" by Barbara Schroeder.
