[adrotate banner=”7″] Lifetime brings up the topical scandals with The Wrong Car, which has to do with all those reported rapes in Uber cars because the company was too busy disrupting things to do background checks on their drivers to see if any of them were crazed rapists. The Wrong Car features a woman who is raped, but then gets revenge by becoming a driver herself to track down the driver who attacked her. I’m not sure how that works, but, okay, sure!
The morning after Trudy, a law school student, unsuspectingly steps into what she believes to be a “NetCar” black sedan, she wakes up confused and alone in a seedy motel—the victim of a roofie and sexual assault. Frustrated by the slow pace of the justice system, she takes matters into her own hands. Becoming NetCar driver herself, Trudy goes on a crusade to find and stop the serial rapist to whom she fell victim.
We got a Bring It On: All or Nothing mini-reunion with both Danielle Savre and Francia Raisa! The Wrong Car also stars Jackson Davis (Perfection) and Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station)
The Wrong Car is written and directed by John Stimpson (A Deadly Obsession, Sins of the Preacher), I haven’t seen any of his Lifetime films yet (I’m still catching up with lots of taped Lifetime movies from the past year!) so I can’t comment on if his involvement is good or not. But he seems to be doing something right to get invited back again and again.
The Wrong Car premieres Saturday, January 16th on Lifetime!
