'Abducted: The Carlina White Story'

Lifetime has set the world premiere of its original movie, Abducted: The Carlina White Story, for October 6, at 8/7c.

Abducted: The Carlina White Story stars Aunjanue Ellis, Keke Palmer, and Sherri Shepherd in the true story of Carlina White (played by Palmer), who, after being abducted as an infant from a New York hospital, solved her own kidnapping and reunited with her biological parents 23 years later.

Vondie Curtis Hall directed the movie.

The case is said to be the first known infant abduction from a New York hospital. Here's more from the press release:

In August of 1987, new parents Joy White (Shepherd) and Carl Tyson (Roger Cross, 24) took their 19-day old daughter Carlina to Harlem Hospital in New York with a high fever. Ann Pettway (Ellis), who had suffered a series of miscarriages and was desperate for a child of her own, posed as a hospital nurse and befriended Carlina’s parents, even offering to watch over their daughter. But shortly after Carlina was admitted, Pettway removed the child’s IV line, placed her in an oversized handbag, and walked out of the hospital with Carlina hidden from view. While Joy and Carl desperately searched for their daughter over the years, Pettway was raising Carlina as Nejdra “Netty” Nance in Bridgeport, Connecticut. As Carlina grew older she began to suspect Pettway was not her birth mother and launched her own investigation.

Lifetime has released 2 new longer trailers for the movie; watch both below:

    I like both Aunjanue and Keke. The storyline is compelling. I will likely watch this.
