When The Hollywood Reporter spilled the beans back in April that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig had made a secret semi-serious Lifetime movie called A Deadly Adoption, tears of pure happiness poured from my eye-holes like Botox from a broken seam in Kim Kardashian’s face. Then later, when Will Ferrell announced that he was throwing the whole thing in the trash because it was supposed to be a secret, my happy tears turned to sad stanky tears.
Now my tears have gone back to the happy kind again, because The Hollywood Reporter confirmed yesterday that A Deadly Adoption is back on and will air on June 20th. And thanks to that poster, now I’m really excited. A Deadly Adoption looks like True Detective meets Mom at Sixteen starring Chuck Norris and a heavily airbrushed Cathy from Dance Moms. Of course, that’s all a lot of words to say that it looks perfect, and I will be clearing my schedule for the night of the 20th so I can park my ass on the couch with a box of wine and get messy while I watch this mess. “And that’s different from every other night how?” just coughed my couch, my ass, and the 12 boxes of wine stacked in my kitchen.
The only problem I can see is that date. June 20th isn’t a Sunday. “Sources” tell THR that someone fucked up, and the poster should have said “Saturday June 20.” It’s already a mess, and it hasn’t even aired yet! Good job, Will Ferrell; you really know your Lifetime movies.
