Lifetime Will Let Lizzie Borden Have Another Whack

It seems that Lizzie Borden is hitting far more than the 11 blows it took to kill her Dad, even beyond the 41 we sang about as children. She is truly the most infamous woman in American history. Which brings me to the news story about Miss Lizzie Borden. After the success Lifetime had with “Lizzie Borden Took An Ax” it seems the network has decided to bring Miss Murder back to the small screen.

Lifetime has announced a six-episode limited series, ‘Lizzie Borden: The Fall River Chronicles’, with Christina Ricci set to reprise her role as the notorious murderer. The series will debut in 2015. Clea DuVall will also reprise her role as Lizzie’s sister, Emma.

Lifetime says the series “delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie’s life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity.”

“For more than a century, the world has been captivated by the legend of Lizzie Borden.  But no one has captured her enigmatic menace as well as Christina Ricci,” said Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime Rob Sharenow. “This series will take viewers further down Lizzie Borden’s dark path, revealing what many people suspected about her mysterious life.”
