The new Lifetime original movie airs on Labor Day, featuring another story of a mother who has unknowingly put her baby in danger. In My Baby Is Gone!, former CSI star Elisabeth Harnois stars as a mother who befriends another pregnant mother, only to learn that she’s not as friendly as she seems. The film debuts on Monday, September 4 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Read on for a preview of the movie and to meet the cast.
In the movie, Emily (Harnois) introduces herself to a new neighbor, Kelly (Anna Van Hooft). When she sees that Kelly is also pregnant, she hopes that they will become close friends. At first, everything turns out great, but then she learns out too late that Kelly is really faking her pregnancy and wants to steal Kelly’s baby!
The plot isn’t based on a true story, but it’s a tried-and-true formula for Lifetime. Other films like A Surrogate’s Nightmare and Nanny Nightmare have all featured mothers facing their worst fears.
