'The Young and the Restless' Alum Yvonne Zima Stars in 'Killing Mommy' June 11 on Lifetime

Yvonne Zima in Killing Mommy
Yvonne Zima, who fans will remember from her role as Daisy Carter on The Young and the Restless, plays twins in the TV movie, Killing Mommy.

The thriller, which premieres on Saturday, June 11, 8pm ET/PT on Lifetime also stars Claire Rankin and Rob Stewart.

Zima, who co-stars with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in the new film, The Nice Guys plays twins Juliana and Deborah Hansen. The twins couldn’t be more different and the divide has grown worse since the sudden death of their beloved father four years earlier.

Juliana is a bubbly college student with expensive tastes. Deb is an ex-drug addict with legal issues. Juliana relies on her wealthy mother to facilitate her her lavish lifestyle while Deborah refuses all financial help and avoids her family as much as possible.

On the night of their 25th birthday, their mother, Eve, (Rankin) announces she is going to marry her boyfriend, Winston (Stewart). With both girls grown, it is time for Eve to sell the family estate and move in with Winston when they get married. These changes don't sit well with either girl, but Juliana feels her mother will continue to support her, while Deb begins to threaten her mother’s happiness to the point of threatening her life.

Eve and Juliana join forces to try and talk some sense into Deb, but she has gone into hiding. As Deb becomes more unhinged, her mother and sister realize how serious her threats are, and Juliana takes it upon herself to save their mother from her sister's deadly scheme.

But the plan for killing mommy may be more insidious than anyone could imagine.

Killing Mommy is executive produced by Pierre David, Tom Berry and Neil Bregman.

Producers are Curtis Crawford and Donald M. Osborne. The film was written by Trent Haaga and directed by Crawford and Anthony Lefresne.

The cast of Lifetime movie Killing Mommy includes Nabil Khatib, Vanessa Zima, Jeff Teravainen, Emily Galley, Eric Hicks, and Celine Filion
