Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Kirstie Alley and three-time Daytime Emmy® Award winner Jennifer Finnigan star in the Lifetime Original Movie “Baby Sellers.” The provocative film, from prolific and multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning Robert Halmi, Sr. (“Human Trafficking”, “Tin Man”), is a chilling account of the brutal and horrific realities behind the global illicit trade of selling children, many kidnapped from their homes, under the guise of seemingly regulated adoption.
Exposing the dark international crime enterprise of infant trafficking, "Baby Sellers" stars Alley as Carla Huxley, a well-respected, influential owner of a major U.S.-based adoption agency that helps prospective parents fulfill their dream of having a family. While presenting an innocent veneer of kindness and good intentions to her trusting clients, behind-the-scenes Huxley functions as a ruthless international kingpin, controlling an expansive syndicate spanning the world and manned by subordinates authorized to use any means necessary to procure children for her business. Jennifer Finnigan ("Close to Home", "The Bold and the Beautiful") stars as Nic Morrison, the dedicated, tough-as-nails Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent who believes Huxley is fueling a global business that stops at nothing to find the right child for the right owner – at the right price – and goes undercover to bring her sordid operation down.
Shot in India, Brazil and Vancouver, the two-hour film is produced by Reunion Pictures. Halmi, Sr. and Matthew O’Connor (“Continuum”, “Alice”, “Tin Man”) are executive producers, which is directed by Nick Willing (“Neverland”, “Alice in Wonderland”) from a screenplay written by Humanitas Prize winner Suzette Couture (“The Last Templar”, “Jesus”) and William Gray.
