Lifetime is bringing the porn biopics to tv, a genre I didn’t think they would start covering, but here we are. From Straight A’s to XXX(originally titled just From Straight A’s, but Lifetime knows that we want XXX!) is the story of a college student who made extra money as a porn star until everyone on campus found out and then started acting like jerks who totally weren’t downloading all her films the second they came out. Let’s see, she’s Miriam Weeks who worked under the stage name Belle Knox, now let’s totally innocently Google her name at work and OMG I’m totally fired again! Damn you, Lifetime! Somehow this is your fault and not my own…
Inspired by a true story, “From Straight A’s to XXX” tells the story of Miriam Weeks (Haley Pullos, “General Hospital”), a college freshman at Duke University who turns to porn in order to pay for her tuition expenses. But when a male student discovers who she is and exposes her secret, Miriam is faced with an onslaught of death threats and cyber-bullying. The film also stars Judd Nelson (“The Breakfast Club”), Sasha Clements (“Majority Rules!”) and Jessica Lu (“Awkward”).
Huh, I guess it isn’t another Vin Diesel XXX movie. That’s a positive in my book!
From Straight A’s to XXX stars Haley Pullos(The Misadventures of the Dunderheads), Judd Nelson(The Transformers: The Movie), Imali Perera(November Christmas), Peter Graham-Gaudreau(Pumpkin Pie Wars), Garrett Black(Distortion), Jessica Lu(Skirtchasers), and Jacky Lai(Silent Hill: Revelation 3D). It’s directed by Vanessa Parise (#PopFan) and written by Anne-Marie Hess (Britney Ever After)
From Straight A’s to XXX premieres Saturday, February 11th on Lifetime!
If you can’t trust drug dealers, who can you trust? Unfortunately for these upper class youths, their drug dealer turns out to be a liar who is slipping them heroin. You might wonder how you can confuse heroin with other drugs, but since these kids start out with painkillers and then graduate to shoving any type of pill they can get their hands on in their mouths (even, presumably, Flintstones Vitamins!), they aren’t going to stop and look at the pill to see all the heroin oozing out of it. Okay, I don’t know what heroin pills look like, but perhaps they are liquicaps? Gel-caps? Whatever the case, there’s also love going on, guaranteeing Perfect High being filled with lots of perfect teenage angst and you can bet someone will be dead or wish they were by the time the credits roll. Most of you know that as why we watch the Lifetime flicks!
From the trailer there is a dance group, teens freaking out, taking random pills, and of course some idiot passes out while in a car, causing the teen actresses to scream and become dramatic scene chewers. It will be hilarious and awesome.
Inspired by a true story. A star high-school dancer starts using prescription painkillers after a knee injury sidelines her. Feeling isolated, she is adopted by a popular group, which leads to sharing her pills, having regular “pharm” parties and falling in love for the first time. But when her prescription runs out, they resort to buying pills, only to have their lives forever changed when they discover their classmate dealer has been selling them heroin under the guise of being a cheap Mexican painkiller.
Perfect High stars Bella Thorne (The DUFF), Israel Broussard (The Bling Ring), Daniela Bobadilla (The Cheating Pact), Ross Butler (Teen Beach 2), Matreya Fedor (My Mother’s Future Husband), Jasmine Sky Sarin (A Sister’s Nightmare), and Cassidy Alexa (pretty much just this movie). It’s directed by Vanessa Parise (PopFan) and written by Anne-Marie Hess (usually credited as an editor, this is her first full feature as a writer)
Perfect High premieres June 27th on Lifetime!
