Lifetime's Beautiful & Twisted is bitingly funny, super-sexy, ultra-bloody, real-life crime story
LIFETIME, 8:00 PM ET
Rob Lowe and Candice Bergen headline this bloody, sexy, perversely funny true-crime tale about the murders of Fontainebleau hotel heir Ben Novack Jr. and his mother, and the twisted web of sex, excess and revenge that would lead police to Novack’s wife, a seductive former stripper named Narcy.
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 (Paz 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.
Following the premiere of the film, "Beyond the Headlines: The Novack Murders" will air at 10pm ET/PT, taking a deeper look at the Novack murders and including interviews with friends and family.
Beautiful & Twisted was the cover story of last week's TV Weekly magazine, featuring our interview with Rob Lowe.
