This Saturday, April 17th at 9 PM (ET/PT), Lifetime presents the premiere of its made-for-television movie adaptation of The Front by Patricia Cornwell. The film stars Andie MacDowell as Massachusetts District Attorney Monique "Money" Lamont and Daniel Sunjata as State Police Officer Win Garano, who reopen the investigation of the brutal, decades-old murder of a young blind woman in an effort to generate much-needed publicity for Lamont's political aspirations.
The Front is a sequel to At Risk, an adaptation of which premiered last Saturday, and which will air as an encore presentation on Saturday at 7 PM (ET/PT).
Watch a preview of both films following the synopsis of The Front below.
About The Front (from the publisher): District Attorney Monique Lamont, a hard-charging woman with powerful ambitions and a troubling willingness to cut corners, has a special job for Massachusetts state investigator Win Garano. As part of a new public relations campaign about the dangers of declining neighborhoods, she’s sending him to Watertown to “come up with a drama,” and she thinks she knows just the case that will serve. Garano is very skeptical, because he knows that Watertown is also the home base for a loose association of municipal police departments called the "Front", set up in order that they don’t have to be so dependent on the state—much to Lamont’s anger. He senses a much deeper agenda here—but he has no idea just how deep it goes. In the days that follow, he’ll find that Lamont’s task, and the places it leads him, will resemble a house of mirrors—everywhere he turns, he’s not quite sure if what he’s seeing is true.
