Rob Lowe (The West Wing, Parks and Recreation), Paz Vega (Spanglish, Grace of Monaco) and Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown) star in the Lifetime Original Movie Beautiful & Twisted. The true story of a couple’s obsession, jealousy and greed, which ends in one of the most notorious cold-blooded murders in recent history, Beautiful & Twisted premieres Saturday, January 31 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.

Set against blue-sky Miami in a world of money, privilege and excess, the high-flying millionaire heir to the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel fortune, Ben Novack, Jr. (Lowe), marries a stunning stripper, Narcy (Vega). But the couple's intense relationship, sparked by fetish and kink, quickly devolves into a marriage in which both lovers inexplicably coexist on love and distrust. When Ben is found brutally murdered, the city’s elite is shaken to the core. As police untangle a web of deviant behavior, Narcy emerges as the Prime Suspect. Bergen portrays Ben’s mother, Bernice Novack, whose suspicions surrounding Narcy lead to her demise at the hands of her ruthless daughter-in-law.

Watch a sneak peek below in which Narcy is angry at Ben for sleeping around with other women and ends up injuring him.



Following the premiere of the film, Beyond the Headlines: The Novack Murders will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT, taking a deeper look at the Novack murders and including interviews with friends and family.

Beautiful & Twisted is produced by Sony Pictures Television. Judith Verno (Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, Masters of Sex) and Rob Lowe are executive producers. The film is written by Teena Booth, Inon Shampanier, Natalie Shampanier and Stephen Kay.
