Lifetime Movie Network is in pre-production on The Natalee Holloway Story and is slated to air next year, according to Variety.
The film will dramatize the story of the 18-year-old Alabama woman who disappeared in May 2005 during a high school trip to Aruba. Although no body was recovered, it’s been widely speculated that she was murdered.
The network will be "working closely" with Holloway’s mother, Beth Twitty, said LMN senior veep in charge of original movies, Tanya Lopez, "to raise awareness of how to keep our children safe at all times."
Helen Verno, exec VP of movies and miniseries at Sony Pictures Television, said the telepic will concentrate on the "love story" between mother and daughter.
