Described as a "dramatic thriller" that will pay winking tribute to Lifetime movies of yore (see also: My Stepson, My Lover and Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life), A Deadly Adoption will likely premiere this summer to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Lifetime's movie division, THR reports.

Ferrell and Wiig are re-teaming with writer Andrew Steele, who also penned the miniseries The Spoils of Babylon, in which they both starred and was produced by Ferrell.
