Alyssa Milano by John Sciulli/WireImage.com
has landed the lead in the Lifetime movie
, based on the true story of a widow who gets sucked into her boyfriend's life of crime. Oh, and lives to regret it. Sorry, I thought that part went without saying.
Lifetime has also OK'd the production of a pilot for
Long Island Confidential
, a drama about a homicide detective who returns to her old stomping grounds only to find the ghosts of her past still alive and well. Sounds like a job for the soon-to-be-unemployed
to me. (Her fall drama,
, is that bad.)
And on the big screen,
is being joined in the spooky
A Haunting in Connecticut
by three new costars:
, late of
, will play her husband;
, their son; and
, their friendly neighborhood exorcist.
