Lifetime has greenlit a new movie event based on V.C. Andrews’ Dawn Cutler series, following the dark and twisted history of the Cutler, Longchamp and Booth families.
Brec Bassinger (Stargirl, Bella and the Bulldogs) takes on the title role of Dawn Longchamp and will be joined by Donna Mills (Nope, General Hospital, Knots Landing) as Lillian Cutler. Joey McIntyre (New Kids on the Block) stars as Michael Sutton, Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives) as Ormand Longchamp, Khobe Clarke (Yellowjackets, An Amish Sin) as Jimmy Longchamp and Fran Drescher (The Nanny) as Agnes Morris.
As the exclusive home of movies inspired by books from the best-selling author V.C. Andrews, Lifetime brings to television the Dawn Cutler novels—Dawn, Secrets of the Morning, Twilight’s Child and Midnight Whispers. The final novel of the series, Darkest Hour, is currently in development.
This follows on Lifetime’s success this summer with the limited series Flowers in the Attic: The Origin, seen by 10 million total viewers.
