Lifetime has given the green light to Beautiful And Twisted, a TV movie starring and executive produced by Rob Lowe. Set in Miami against a backdrop of money, hotels and excess, Beautiful And Twisted is based on the true story of Ben Novack Jr (Lowe), millionaire heir to the Fountainebleau Miami Beach hotel fortune, whose brutal murder shook the city’s elite to the core. In the aftermath of the killing, police untangle the sex, lies and payback behind Ben’s marriage to his wife and former stripper Narcy (Paz Vega), who they identify as the prime suspect in a killing that rivals history’s most chilling cases. Candice Bergen also stars as Ben’s mother, Bernice Novak.
Sony Pictures TV is producing. Teena Booth, Inon Shampanier, Natalie Shampanier and Stephen Kay will pen the script. Judith Verno also exec produces with Lowe.
