Lifetime Television’s upcoming original movie is Just a Baby.
The film -- which stars Mercedes Ruehl (The Fisher King, Married to the Mob), Jane Krakowski (Alfie, Ally McBeal) and Danielle Panabaker (Stuck in the Suburbs, EmpireFalls) -- is the story of a 16-year-old girl whose life is thrown into turmoil when she has a baby and her mother forces her to keep the birth a secret.
“This is a poignant yet inspirational story about the consequences of teen pregnancy,” Lifetime senior vice president of original movies Trevor Walton said in a prepared statement.
“It explores the relationship between a mother who believes she is doing the best for her daughter and a young girl who feels she’s been trapped into living a lie,” Walton added. “We are thrilled that Mercedes, Jane and Danielle are bringing this sensitive story to life.”
