LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE "PROSECUTING CASEY ANTHONY," STARRING ROB LOWE, TO PREMIERE JANUARY 19

Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award Nominee Portrays Jeff Ashton in Film Based on Former Prosecutor's Book about High-Profile and Controversial Caylee Anthony Murder Trial

LOS ANGELES, CA (December 10, 2012) - Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award nominee Rob Lowe stars in the Lifetime Original Movie Prosecuting Casey Anthony, which will make its world premiere on Saturday, January 19, at 8:00pm ET/PT. In the gripping film, Lowe portrays Jeff Ashton, the Florida prosecutor in last year's controversial Caylee Anthony murder trial, and author (with Lisa Pulitzer) of the best-selling book Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony, upon which the movie is based.

Prosecuting Casey Anthony reveals Ashton's inside story of the true crime drama that captivated and then shocked the nation when Caylee Anthony's mother, Casey, was acquitted of killing her daughter, despite what many thought to be overwhelming evidence of guilt. But much of that "evidence" had nothing to do with direct evidence of guilt, but rather her behavior in the weeks between the disappearance of Caylee and Casey's mother's call to the police.

The movie is seen from Ashton's (Lowe) perspective and takes viewers behind the scenes of both the investigation into Caylee's tragic death and the ensuing trial, shedding new light on the many questions of what happened to the two year-old girl, how Ashton and his fellow prosecutors built their case and why a woman so shrouded in suspicion was proclaimed innocent. Also starring in the movie are Elizabeth Mitchell (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), who portrays lead prosecutor Linda Burdick; Oscar Nunez (The Office) as Casey Anthony's attorney Jose Baez; Marisa Ramirez (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena) plays Ashton's wife Rita; Kevin Dunn (Transformers) as George Anthony and Virginia Welch (A God Named Pablo) is Casey Anthony.

Prosecuting Casey Anthony is executive produced by Jean Abounader (Lifetime's We Have Your Husband, Held Hostage), Michelle Manning (The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles), Rob Lowe (Dr. Vegas, The Lyon's Den) and Alison Cross (Rizzoli & Isles, Raising the Bar). Peter Werner (Justified, Medium) directed the screenplay by Alison Cross. Jeff Ashton serves as a consultant on the film, which is produced by Fox Television Studios. Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony is published by HarperCollins.

Rob Lowe can currently be seen on the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation, and recently appeared on three episodes of Showtime's Californication. He also starred in the ABC drama Brothers & Sisters from 2007-2010. Lowe received Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for his work on the hit NBC drama The West Wing. He has also been successful with highly rated television miniseries such as Lifetime's Beach Girls, Salem's Lot for TNT, The Christmas Shoes for CBS and The Stand for ABC. Some of Lowe's feature films include The Outsiders, St. Elmo's Fire, About Last Night, Bad Influence, Wayne's World, Tommy Boy, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and most recently, TheInvention of Lying. Last year, Lowe added author to his credits with the release of his memoir, Stories I Only Tell My Friends, a New York Times best seller.

In January, Lowe starred in the Lifetime Original Movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable, which averaged 5.8 million total viewers. The movie is 2012's second most-watched movie telecast across cable among all of the demographics, second only to the Lifetime Original Movie Steel Magnolias (excluding miniseries).
