"AN AMISH SIN" STARRING LIFETIME FAVORITE KELLIE MARTIN, DYLAN RATZLAFF AND RUKIYA BERNARD MOVIES JOIN PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED LIFETIME OCTOBER FILMS "THE GABBY PETITO STORY," "THE DISAPPEARANCE OF CARI FARVER" AND "LET'S GET PHYSICAL"

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 18, 2022) - Lifetime continues to dive deep into current events and add to its captivating slate of movies and casting for 2022 with the upcoming October Ripped from the Headline movies, Swindler Seduction and An Amish Sin. Premiering on Saturday October 22nd, Swindler Seduction features Colton Haynes (Arrow, Teen Wolf) in a dual role, playing crooked twin brothers, starring alongside Gabrielle Graham (Twenties, Possessor). The inspired-by-true events thriller exposes the world of the romantic con artists - men who earn their living off women who they fool and steal from.

The following Saturday on October 29th, An Amish Sin stars Kellie Martin (Army Wives, Life Goes On), Dylan Ratzlaff (A Million Little Things, Doomsday Mom) and Rukiya Bernard (Yellowjackets, Van Helsing), and is the story of an Amish teen who tries to escape the harshness of the 18th century lifestyle she has grew up in to find her voice and independence in a neighboring city.

Short form specials Beyond The Headlines: Swindler Seduction and Beyond The Headlines: An Amish Sin will debut directly after each respective premiere, and will include interviews and deeper insights among the current events highlighted.

Both films will join our previously announced slate of Ripped from the Headlines movies, including The Gabby Petito Story (Oct 1), The Disappearance of Cari Farver (Oct 8), and Let's Get Physical (Oct 15). All movies will run on back-to-back Saturdays in October and debut at 8p/7c.

Swindler Seduction

STARRING COLTON HAYNES AND GABRIELLE GRAHAM

OCTOBER 22 at 8p/7c

When Louisa (Gabrielle Graham) meets handsome and sweet Steve (Colton Haynes) at a bar in Chicago, he seems like the perfect guy: an angel investor and entrepreneur who just sold a company for millions. 48 blissful, sexy hours and countless lies later, Steve disappears, and Louisa realizes she's been swindled out of thousands of dollars. The police won't help her but after Louisa finds out she's pregnant, she sets out to track down Steve on her own, only to discover he has an identical twin, Mitch (Colton Haynes), and the brothers are both romantic con artists. As Louisa digs deeper, she uncovers how women have been hurt by the swindler twins and decides she must fight back. Using her wits, courage, and determination to not be fooled again, Louisa tries to outsmart the twins and serve justice for all their victims.

Swindler Seduction is a RAW presentation of a Muse Entertainment production. Piers Vellacott, Sara Murray and Jesse Prupas serve as Executive Producers. Jonathan Wright directs from a script written by Liz Lake. Foreign distribution is handled by Muse Distribution International.

Beyond The Headlines: Swindler Seduction explores the phenomenon of evil and criminal twins and the environmental and genetic circumstances that can lead twin siblings to a life of crime. In this special, we speak with a forensic psychologist to deconstruct and analyze a true crime case of identical twin sisters who turned on each other.

An Amish Sin

STARRING DYLAN RATZLAFF, KELLIE MARTIN AND RUKIYA BERNARD

OCTOBER 29 at 8p/7c

The Amish world has always fascinated outsiders with its insular community and 18th century lifestyle that shuns the temptations of modernity. But all is not as wholesome as it seems. Inspired by true stories, Amish Sin follows Rachel (Dylan Ratzlaff), an Amish teen who refuses to obey her parent's command that she marry the man who abused her as a child. When she attempts to run away, she is caught and sent to a "rehab" for Amish girls who don't follow the rules. Managing to escape from the facility, she makes her way to a neighboring city where she has to learn to live - and find her place -- in our world. Also stars Kellie Martin as Rachel's mother Sara and Rukiya Bernard as Grace, who befriends Rachel when she leaves the Amish community.

An Amish Sin is produced for Lifetime by Amish Productions, Inc. in association with Johnson Production Group. Ilene Kahn Power (Gone Mom: The Disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, Gia) is the executive producer. Teleplay by Barbara Nance (Crossing Jordan, The X-Files) and Michael Nankin. Story by Barbara Nance. Michael Nankin (The Good Lord Bird, Chris Watts: Confessions of a Killer) is the director.

Beyond The Headlines: An Amish Sin talks to real women who have left the Amish sect, discussing the challenges they faced as part of the community, how they got out and what their lives are like today. We also consult an expert on the role of women in the Amish community both past and present.
