LIFETIME HAS FIVE ALL NEW MOVIES YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THE WATCHER IN THE WOODS

Starring Anjelica Huston and Directed by Melissa Joan Hart

Premieres October 21 at 8pm ET/PT

Executive producer and director Melissa Joan Hart reimagines the '80s cult classic starring Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston as Mrs. Aylwood, the distraught mother whose daughter, Karen, vanished in the English countryside over 20 years ago. When Jan Carstairs (Tallulah Evans) and her family move into the idyllic Aylwood manor for the summer, Mrs. Aylwood is taken aback by Jan's striking resemblance to Karen. The family is warned against entering the surrounding woods, but Jan and her little sister Ellie (Dixie Egerickx) hear voices coming from the forest. Strange occurrences begin to unnerve the family and Jan starts to suspect that they are linked to Karen's disappearance. As Jan unravels the dark past hidden by the townspeople, she delves further into the mystery and deeper into danger, but now it might be too late to escape The Watcher in the Woods.

The Watcher in the Woods is produced by Hartbreak Films. Paula Hart also executive produces. The script was written by Scott Abbott.

FLINT

Starring Queen Latifah, Betsy Brandt, Jill Scott and Marin Ireland

Executive Produced by Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Katie Couric, Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere

Premieres October 28 at 8pm ET/PT

Flint is the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation. LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt, Breaking Bad), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland, Sneaky Pete) and Nayyirah Shariff (Jill Scott, Steel Magnolias) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents.Golden Globe(R)-winner, Academy Award(R) and Grammy(R)-nominee Queen Latifah (Star) also stars and executive produces.

Inspired by the Time Magazine cover story, "The Toxic Tap," by Josh Sanburn, Flint is also executive produced by Academy Award(R) and Emmy(R) nominated team Craig Zadan and Neil Meron for Sony Pictures Television, Emmy(R) Award-winning journalist Katie Couric and Shakim Compere from Flavor Unit Entertainment. Academy Award(R) nominee Bruce Beresford directs from a script by Barbara Stepansky.

Lifetime has partnered with the United Way of Genesee County on a PSA, featuring the cast of Flint, to encourage viewers to donate to help the people of Flint. Funds raised will go to much needed short-term, immediate relief, including purchasing filters and bottled water, and more long-term health and development needs for the children of Flint and their families.

THE LOST WIFE OF ROBERT DURST

Starring Katharine McPhee and Daniel Gillies

Premieres November 4 at 8pm ET/PT

While Robert Durst has captured headlines with his recent arrest and controversy surrounding the documentary, The Jinx, Lifetime puts his forgotten first wife Kathie at the center of The Lost Wife of Robert Durst. Young and wide-eyed Kathie (Katharine McPhee, Scorpion) falls in love with charming, yet quirky real estate scion Robert Durst (Daniel Gillies, The Originals), only to find their marriage turning stranger, darker and more disturbing as time passes. But when Kathie disappears in 1982, her family and friends are deeply disturbed that her disappearance isn't taken seriously by police. While Durst is currently in jail awaiting trial for the murder of his close friend, journalist Susan Berman, the questions linger as to what really happened to Kathie. The Lost Wife of Robert Durst pulls back the curtain on the world of Robert Durst and explores what may have happened between him and Kathie. Based on the book A Deadly Secret: The Bizarre and Chilling Story of Robert Durst by investigative journalist Matt Birkbeck, the film is executive produced by Lincoln Square Productions' Linda Berman (Madoff) and Rudy Bednar (Final Witness). Emmy Award winner Yves Simoneau (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee) directs from a script written by Emmy nominee Bettina Gilois (Bessie).

OSCAR PISTORIOUS: BLADE RUNNER KILLER

Starring Andreas Damm and Toni Garrn

Premieres November 11 at 8pm ET/PT

Oscar Pistorious: Blade Runner Killer tells the story of the sprint runner dubbed the "Blade Runner," and his rise to fame as a gold medalist Paralympic champion and as the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics. Oscar's (Andreas Damm, Elementary) resilience to overcome his disability combined with his apparent fairy tale relationship with model Reeva Steenkap (Toni Garrn, Under the Bed) turned him into a media favorite. This all shattered one Valentine's Day night when four bullets were fired and Reeva's life was taken. Her brutal death shocked the world and the court room drama that followed consumed the news. Told from the point of view of the people most affected -- Reeva and her mother -- Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer will give the inside scoop of the events leading up to Reeva's killing, the relationship between Oscar and Reeva, the cracks that were forming in it, as well as what allegedly happened on that tragic night and the courtroom trials that followed.

The film was produced by Eric Tomosunas and Swirl Films for Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Leslie Greif. The film will have its world television premiere on November 11, 2017 on Lifetime. Norman Stone serves as director; Amber Benson is the writer.

I AM ELIZABETH SMART

Starring Skeet Ulrich, Deirdre Lovejoy and Alana Boden

Narrated and Produced by Elizabeth Smart

Premieres November 18 at 8pm ET/PT

2017 marks the 15-year anniversary of Elizabeth Smart's abduction. Part of a cross-network event with A&E, Lifetime's I Am Elizabeth Smart is the definitive, authorized movie about the harrowing kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart, told from her perspective and with her full participation. In June 2002, Elizabeth Ann Smart (Alana Boden) was a 14-year-old girl when she was abducted from her Salt Lake City home by religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell (Skeet Ulrich). He brought her to a hilly encampment where, with his twisted accomplice Wanda Barzee (Deirdre Lovejoy), he held Elizabeth captive. She was starved, drugged, raped and subjected to bizarre religious rituals until, nine months later, she enabled her own rescue. A film about the kidnapping was rushed on the air shortly after the incident, but it shied away from the reality of what Elizabeth went through. Now, in I Am Elizabeth Smart, Elizabeth herself, as a producer and on-screen narrator, explores how she survived, and confronts the truths and misconceptions about her captivity. I Am Elizabeth Smart is executive produced by Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and Joan Harrison of Asylum Entertainment, Allison Berkley and Joseph Freed of Marwar Junction Productions. Barbara Lieberman and Tom Patricia also executive produce the movie with Elizabeth Smart serving as producer. Sarah Walker directs from a teleplay by Tory Walker.

The two-part documentary special, Elizabeth Smart: Autobiography debuts on A&E on November 12 and 13.
