LIFETIME ORDERS TWO ADDITIONAL EPISODES OF LIMITED SERIES "THE LIZZIE BORDEN CHRONICLES," STARRING GOLDEN GLOBE(R) AND EMMY(R) NOMINEE CHRISTINA RICCI

Premiering April 2015, Ricci and Clea DuVall Reprise Roles from Hit Original Movie; Jonathan Banks, John Heard, Cole Hauser and Jessy Schram to also Star

PASADENA, CA - January 9, 2015 - Lifetime has ordered two additional episodes of its new limited series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (#LizzieBorden), in which Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award nominee Christina Ricci (Monster) reprises her role as the notorious murder suspect from the network's hit original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax. Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Clea DuVall (Argo) also reprises her role as Lizzie's sister, Emma, in the eight-part series, which premieres April 2015.

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie's life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity filled with scandalous love affairs. But when numerous people close to Lizzie - ranging from her half-brother William (Andrew Howard, Hatfields & McCoys) to Broadway luminaries and her business associate/underworld kingpin Mr. Flowers (Emmy nominee Jonathan Banks, Breaking Bad) -- start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser, Good Will Hunting) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise. Jessy Schram (Falling Skies) plays Nancy O'Keefe, an alluring and ambitious actress and dancer who befriends Lizzie, and Emmy nominee John Heard (The Sopranos) will portray William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie's murdered father Andrew.

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles is produced by Sony Pictures Television and executive produced by Judith Verno (Lizzie Borden Took An Ax) and Ricci. The limited series is written by Greg Small & Rich Blaney (Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret), Barbara Nance (House of Lies), Jason Grote (Mad Men) and David Simkins (Grimm). Stephen Kay (Sons of Anarchy) directs episodes one and two, while Russell Mulcahy (Teen Wolf) directs episodes three and four, and Howard Deutch (American Horror Story) helms episodes five and six.

In its January 25, 2014, world premiere, Lizzie Borden Took An Ax averaged 4.4 million Total Viewers. Among social media, it was the evening's most-tweeted program across television, while it also drove the highest traffic to a movie premiere on mylifetime.com since November 2012. Lizzie Borden Took an Ax was cable's second most-watched movie telecast of 2014 among Adults 25-54, second only to the Lifetime Original Movie Flowers in the Attic.
