What's next? We hope another Lifetime movie.
In February 2011, 'Amanda Knox: Murder On Trial in Italy' aired on Lifetime. Starring Hayden Panettiere and Marcia Gay Harden, the movie was typical Lifetime fare. There was drama, romance and violence and the Knox family wasn't too keen on it. In fact, they tried to have the movie blocked from air. But their efforts were unsuccessful, and the film was watched by 2.8 million viewers.
When the movie aired on Lifetime, the 'Heroes' star told AOL TV she did a copious amount of research, but didn't form an opinion on her guilt or innocence.
"I spent five weeks on this film talking about it, reading everything I could get my hands on, watching all this news footage, and I went so back and forth. I'd go, 'Oh, she's innocent, oh, she's guilty, oh, she's innocent,' and every little amount of new information that I acquired changed my mind," Panettiere said.
"So I feel like when you just see it from the outside and you don't really research it but you watch one version of it, then you might have an opinion, but when you really get into it and you really start reading the facts and you really educate yourself about it, it's very difficult to have one. It's very difficult to know," she said.
While the appeal wasn't as sexy as the original case, we'd be down for a Lifetime sequel. If that can't happen? Hello, 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.'
