The Sopranos alumna Drea de Matteo is set to star in the Lifetime two-hour original movie/backdoor pilot Stalkers (formerly Whisper of Fear). Inspired by a true story from the book Whisper of Fear: The True Story of the Prosecutor Who Stalks the Stalkers by Rhonda Saunders, a criminal prosecutor who wrote the law on stalking in California, Stalkers follows Diane Harper (de Matteo), a hot-headed cop with a troubled past, and a polished DA who team up to bring a stalker, obsessed with her former lover, to justice. Stalkers will be produced by Pilgrim Studios and is executive produced by Craig Piligian. Mark Tonderai will direct from a script by David Wiener (Last Resort). De Matteo, whose role on HBO’s mob drama The Sopranos earned her an Emmy, is with Gersh and Untitled. She recently recurred on FX’s Sons Of Anarchy.
