Lifetime Television said Monday that Michelle Trachtenberg (Ice Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will star in Lifetime Original Movie The Dive from Clausen’s Pier.
The film is based on Ann Packer’s novel about a young woman’s quest to find herself after her fiancé is paralyzed in a diving accident.
Con Artists, the television arm of Icon Productions (The Passion of the Christ, What Women Want, Braveheart), is producing The Dive from Clausen’s Pier, in association with Fox Television Studios.
“We are thrilled that Michelle is joining us to bring Ann Packer’s celebrated novel to life,” Lifetime senior vice president of original movies Trevor Walton said in a prepared statement. “It’s an absorbing, suspenseful and sexy story that explores the dilemma of choosing between what you feel you owe to the people who love you and what you owe yourself.”
