[adrotate banner=”1″]Those darn men are at it again! This time, an evil man is up to no good, burning houses in his neighborhood. Specifically his own house, framing his wife for the murder of their child. Except he didn’t count on the fact she would put on a wig and solve the case! At least I’m assuming she solves the case, maybe she dies or something in the end. But the fact of the matter is, Julie Benz is Zoey, aka super cop mom, and with Timmy gets faked killed by her evil husband it’s time to go all revenge! Originally called Arson Mom, Lifetime renamed it Sole Custody (as child custody hearings are scarier than fire!) and it’s the latest original movie!
Zoey, a cyber crime cop, and Barry, a detective, raise their son, Timmy, in a quiet suburban neighborhood. When Zoey confides in her best friend about shift work and the lack of spark in her marriage. Zoey’s mind is set in motion and when she discovers Barry is screwing around, she calls him out. Willing to give him a second chance, Zoey tries to mend her marriage. When Barry is seen again with “that” woman, Zoey gets a restraining order and sole custody of Timmy. Late one night a fire in her home tragically takes the life of her son. The evidence points to Zoey taking sleeping pills and smoking – she’s charged with Timmy’s murder. Zoey goes to Barry for help but he’s distant and blames her. Zoey fights back, convinced she was set up to take the blame for Timmy’s death. As she fights to prove her own innocence she gets the biggest shock of all.
Sole Custody stars Julie Benz, Ian Carter, Samantha Ferris, Chelah Horsdal Chelsey Reist, Matthew Kevin Anderson, and Rick Ravanello. It’s directed by Brenton Spencer (who has done a bunch of television work) and written by Brian D. Young (Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep and the upcoming Patient Killer) and Gary E. Imhoff (just this) The film has been released overseas, so maybe you can already watch it if you are clever. Or just wait until it’s on tv for free! Even more clever!
Sole Custody premieres August 16th on Lifetime!
