Academy Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden is coming to Lifetime where she will star in the movie Love You To Death. The movie that tells the true murder mystery of a mother and daughter has been greenlit. Emily Skeggs and Tate Donovon have also been cast. Gay has recently been seen in the CBS series Code Black and the Fifty Shades trilogy.
Love You To Death depicts a real-life mother and daughter Camille and Esme respectively, who seems well respected by neighbors and in their community, yet have a dysfunctional and dangerous relationship. Things come to the forefront when Camille (played by Harden) is suddenly murdered.
Esme, who is sick and wheelchair-bound disappears and is feared kidnapped, presumably by the murderer. While the investigation into Camille’s murder continues, disturbing information comes to light. It becomes apparent that Camille was extremely controlling and her relationship with her daughter was an unhealthy one.
Everyone knew Camille as the devoted mother who sacrificed her life for her wheelchair-bound daughter, Esme. When Camille was found brutally stabbed to death, no one could believe it.
The story takes a startling and shocking shift when Esme is finally found.

When Esme is discovered, numerous and bizarre secrets are revealed. What comes into question is who Camille truly was and what was the true nature of her relationship with her daughter.
Esme is discovered, but not with a brutal stranger who murdered her mother. She was found with her boyfriend and it is learned that she conspired with her boyfriend to have Camille killed.
That would be shocking enough, but that isn’t where the story ends. Not only did they find Esme alive, but she was healthy and not in a wheelchair.
Camille suffered from Munchausen by proxy syndrome and had been faking her daughter’s illness for years. Esme and her boyfriend conspired to murder Camile believing it was the only chance she had at freedom.
These types of movies do very well on Lifetime and with Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden at the helm, audiences are all but guaranteed this is going to be a huge success for the network.
