Deadine reports Nancy Grace’s thriller “The Eleventh Victim” is being developed into a movie for Lifetime. Jennie Garth will play the lead, Hailey Dean, an Atlanta prosecutor whose fiance is murdered. The character is loosely based on Grace.
Talk show host Grace, a former prosecutor herself, is executive producing the movie with Ted Bauman and Josh Sabarra. PR executive Sabarra, a longtime friend of Grace’s, was Lifetime’s head of communications until the company’s merger with A&E Networks.
