You won’t want to miss this original movie (based on a true story) about a newlywed couple from Alabama whose dream honeymoon to Australia takes a turn for the worse when the bride drowns in what appears to be a freak diving accident. But when an incriminating underwater photo taken by another vacationing couple surfaces, Australian authorities begin to suspect foul play which launches an international murder investigation as to whether or not her husband is guilty of killing her.

We’ve got more on “Fatal Honeymoon” including on-set photos of Harvey Keitel who plays ‘Tommy Thomas’ (the bride’s father) in the upcoming film.

Exclusive Q&A - “An Officer and a Murderer” star, Laura Harris

Posted By njules 12:08pm GMT

Q&A with Laura Harris Laura Harris, who plays Detective Jennifer Dobson in the Lifetime Original Movie, “An Officer and a Murderer,” discusses how familiar she was with the true story before taking on the role and more!

How would you describe your character, ‘Detective Jennifer Dobson’ in “An Officer and a Murderer”?

Detective Jennifer Dobson is no nonsense, intuitive, unjaded hard working cop in a small Canadian town. Kind of a composite of the towns local innocence and integrity before these crimes were perpetrated.

Do you relate to her at all?

Yes. I guess you could say we share a deep belief in people’s basic goodness.

Have any of the other characters you've played reminded you of Detective Jennifer Dobson?

This is a relatively new character for me. This story, and the composite of the community she represents within it, does not bring other roles to mind.

Did you do any research about the true story before taking on the role?

Just enough. I found the script to be respectful, and admire Gary Cole’s work very much. Once prepping, what I did know of the true story made it clear if I attempted to go through the transcripts of the case, the weight of the crimes would fill my mind and possibly interrupt the characters relative innocence preceding this case. Dobson could not have imagined these crimes before they were uncovered clue by clue. The details of the true story, those I knew, where so unthinkable, so personal in their horror, the victims suffering cannot be erased from the mind.

Any unexpected mishaps during production?

Oooh, none that I recall. Sometimes shoots about dark stories can be hard to shoot, but that was not the case with this group. The tone was impeccable, regenerative even, the producers, the crew and cast just a delight. Everyone had so much respect for the victims and the nature of the story.

What is your favorite Lifetime Original Movie?

I like them all. Don’t make me choose:)

True Crime Update: “Blue-Eyed Butcher”

Posted By njules 11:10am GMT

Blue-Eyed Butcher update Based on a true story, the Lifetime Original Movie, “Blue-Eyed Butcher” follows the story of Susan Wright (Susan Paxton stars), a beautiful young wife and mother of two who violently kills her husband, Jeff Wright, in their Houston home after years of alleged abuse.

In 2004, a jury convicted Susan Wright of first-degree murder and she was sentenced to 25 years in prison. When Wright re-appealed in 2008, two new witnesses came forward and told a new jury that they too were abused during their relationship with Jeff Wright. Their testimonies helped Susan get a new sentencing that only reduced her initial sentence by 5 years. She is now serving a 20-year sentence in Hobby Correctional Facility in Marlin, Texas and will not be eligible for parole until 2014.

We’ve got more true crime updates on the people featured in some of your favorite “ripped from the headlines” movies.
