Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's 'A Deadly Adoption' Trailer Promises a Thrill Ride

Question: What happens when you take two of our generation's greatest comedy stars, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig, and throw them into the mess of a blender that is a Lifetime original move?

Answer: A Deadly Adoption.

Though it might seem like any one of Lifetime's other ridiculous made-for-TV flicks, A Deadly Adoption is purposefully poking fun at itself with an over-the-top, totally-contrived premise and the kind of acting you might see at your local community playhouse's amateur night. That said, it's probably going to be kind of amazing.


Produced by Gary Sanchez Productions, the plot follows Ferrell and Wiig, a married couple who take care of a pregnant women because they hope to adopt her child.

And come on, how do you do wrong with him?


And her?


A Deadly Adoption premieres on Lifetime on June 20 at 8:00 p.m. Watch the teaser trailer below:
