Lifetime audiences have already met The Wrong Girl and The Wrong Roommate. Now, get ready for The Wrong Student. The new Lifetime Original Movie, starring Jessica Morris and Vivica A. Fox, debuts on the network at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 11. Read on for a preview of the new movie.
The film stars Jessica Morris as Kelly Halligan, who moves from New York to California with her 17-year-old niece for a business opportunity. After her niece tries out for the high school soccer team, Kelly starts a relationship with coach Dominic (Jason-Shane Scott). However, their lives are turned upside down when the titular “wrong student” enters the picture. Maddie (Evanne Friedmann) is obsessed with Dominic, even though he doesn’t want to start a relationship with an underage teen.
Morris is best known for her roles in Role Model and Rosewood. Kill Bill‘s Vivica A. Fox also stars as a detective.
The Wrong Student was directed by David DeCoteau, who has an eye-popping 131 credits to his name. In 2016 alone, he directed eight movies, including The Wrong Child, Asian Ghost Story, 666: Teen Warlock, Sorority Slaughterhouse and The Wrong Roommate. In addition to The Wrong Student, he has three other movies slated for 2017.
