Christina Ricci and Clea DuVall Reprise Roles from Hit Original Movie
 
          In Lifetime’s new limited series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles (#LizzieBorden), Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award nominee Christina Ricci (Monster) reprises her role as the notorious murder suspect from the network’s hit original movie Lizzie Borden Took An Ax.  It premieres on Sunday, April 5, at 10pm ET/PT.  Screen Actors Guild Award® winner Clea DuVall (Argo) also reprises her role as Lizzie’s sister, Emma, in the eight-part series.

          The Lizzie Borden Chronicles delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie’s life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her father and stepmother in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity filled with scandalous love affairs.  But when numerous people close to Lizzie – ranging from her half-brother William (Andrew Howard, Hatfields & McCoys) to Broadway luminaries and her business associate/underworld kingpin Mr. Flowers (Emmy nominee Jonathan Banks, Breaking Bad) – start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Cole Hauser, Good Will Hunting) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise.  Jessy Schram (Falling Skies) plays Nancy O’Keefe, an alluring and ambitious actress and dancer who befriends Lizzie, and Emmy nominee John Heard (The Sopranos) portrays William Almy, the business partner of Lizzie’s murdered father, Andrew.
