The film about the woman who was convicted of killing her former boyfriend will premiere June 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Lifetime isn’t wasting time in getting its Jodi Arias film on the air.
With the convicted murderer’s trial still in its penalty phase, the cable network announced today that its true-crime movie, Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, will premiere June 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Tania Raymonde (Lost) plays Arias, 32, who was recently found guilty of the 2008 killing of her former lover, Travis Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer, The Mob Doctor), after a day of sex. Alexander suffered a slashed throat, numerous stab wounds and a bullet in the head in the attack.
Arias could face the death penalty in the sensational Arizona case.
Tony Plana (Ugly Betty) plays prosecutor Juan Martinez and David Zayas (Dexter) portrays detective Esteban Flores.
The film finished production this week but still has time to address the outcome of the penalty phase, depending on how long that takes.
Lifetime also plans to broadcast an hour-long documentary, Jodi Arias: Beyond the Headlines, on Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. It explores their relationship and Alexander’s murder.[source]
