For his first TV venture, superstar romance novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, A Walk to Remember) saddles up to executive produce a Civil War Western with a feisty female in the crosshairs. The Lifetime movie (and backdoor pilot) Deliverance Creek (airing Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c) stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as widowed mother Belle Gatlin Barlowe, who turns outlaw to protect her family and land from corrupt bankers. It's a good bet that a soulful guy will join in her fight. Also in the the cast: Wes Ramsey (CSI: Miami), Yaani King (Mad Men) and Skeet Ulrich (Jericho).
Here's a first look at the promotional poster for the movie.
