Lindsay Hartley Stars in 'Dying to be Loved' April 16 on Lifetime

Lindsay Hartley
Fans of the daytime dramas All My Children, Days of our Lives, and Passions, will not want to miss Dying to be Loved, starring Lindsay Hartley. The thriller will premiere on Saturday, April 16 at 8pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Also starring are Dan Payne (All Yours), Paloma Kwiatkowski (Bates Motel) and Jedidiah Goodacre (Tomorrowland).

Hartley plays Jill Yates, a successful lawyer, engaged to Connor (Payne), a self-made business man. They are busy planning their wedding. Jill’s daughter, Emily, 18, (Kwiatkowski) is a freshman in college. Extremely introverted and suffering from bouts of depression, Jill is thrilled when Emily asks if she can invite a young man to dinner.

The thrill is gone, however, when she and Connor meet Gary, 25, (Goodacre), an obnoxious and self-involved young man with a temper. Emily can see no wrong and Connor suggests Jill not criticize Gary as it will only draw Emily closer to him.

But Gary proves to be more dangerous than anyone thought when he is involved in a road rage incident while out with Emily and he ends up killing a man. Emily is also charged with the crime because she handled the gun – even though she was trying to keep Gary from using it.

Gary is convicted of manslaughter but released into the custody of his brother, a policeman, before going to prison. He convinces Emily to run away with him. She leaves a note for her mother saying life is not worth living if they can’t be together.

When a video camera appears to show the two jumping to their deaths in a “double suicide,” Jill is devastated and guilty. However, she believes Gary killed her daughter and faked his own death. She uses all her resources to discover the truth – her daughter is indeed alive. Now both mother and daughter must find a way to save themselves.

Dying to be Loved is executive produced by Tom Berry, David DeCrane and Gilles LaPlante. Producers are Nicole Reid and Costas Vassos. The film was written by Stephen Lyons. Director is Paul Shapiro.
