Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have made a Lifetime movie: A Deadly Adoption (tagline: The birth of a plan gone wrong). News of the project originally surfaced on April 1st; the very next day, Ferrell released a statement claiming the film had been scrapped due to it no longer being a surprise. Looks like the film is happening (again), based on the large billboard for the project now looking over Hollywood Boulevard.

In the film, Ferrell and Wiig play a couple who care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) before shenanigans and hijinks occur. The two-hour soapy drama was written by Andrew Steele, who created the bizarro comedy miniseries The Spoils of Babylon for IFC, which also starred Wiig and Ferrell.

Despite what the poster says, THR has confirmed that A Deadly Adoption will premiere Saturday, June 20th.
