A ROSE FOR HER GRAVE: THE RANDY ROTH STORY

FEBRUARY 18TH AT 8/7C

Following the death of her husband, single mom Cindy (Laura Ramsey), finally finds love again with mechanic Randy Roth (Colin Egglesfield) but her wedded bliss soon turns dark when she discovers another side of Randy. Despite the pleas of her best friend Lori (Chrishell Stause) to leave her marriage, Cindy never gets that opportunity after she drowns during a trip to a lake with Randy and the kids. Emotionless following Cindy's death, Randy orders her immediate cremation, takes custody of Cindy's son and attempts to collect on her life insurance policy. Determined to find the truth and get Cindy's son away from his deceitful stepfather, Lori uncovers more of Randy's past, discovering that Cindy may not have been the first wife murdered at his hands.

12 DESPERATE HOURS

FEBRUARY 25TH AT 8/7C

Adapted from Ann Rule's Last Chance, Last Dance true crime collection, 12 Desperate Hours follows Val (Samantha Mathis), a mother who finds herself and her young children held hostage by Denny (Harrison Thomas) when he forces his way into her house after committing murder earlier that day. In order to save them and her husband Mark (David Conrad), who was due home at any moment, Val offers to drive Denny wherever he wants and becomes his unwilling accomplice as he goes on a rampage of destruction. Despite the traumatic events, Val builds a rapport with her captor and uses the relationship to help save the lives of bystanders, herself and even the life of her captor.

A Rose For Her Grave: The Randy Roth Story and 12 Desperate Hours are both produced by Allegheny Image Factory and Best On Best. Conor Allyn and Benjamin Anderson serve as executive producers and Jeffrey Tinnell, Robert Tinnell and John Michaels serve as producers for the films. Allyn and Anderson wrote both scripts.
