Actress Elisabeth Rohm makes her directorial debut in Girl in the Basement starring Judd Nelson, Joely Fisher, and Stefanie Scott. According to the Lifetime press release, it is inspired by actual events of a teen girl held captive for years by her own father. The press release reads:

Girl in the Basement is the horrific story of Sara (Stefanie Scott), a vibrant teen girl who was looking forward to her 18th birthday so she could move away from her controlling father Don (Judd Nelson). But before she could ever blow out the candles, her world became extremely dark after Don imprisons her in the basement of their home.
While Don tries to convince wife Irene (Joely Fisher) that Sara ran away, he would secretly visit her in the basement to torture and rape her while Irene and her sister Amy (Emily Topper) continued living upstairs.

As the years pass, Sara gives birth to several children, alone in the basement. Don eventually brings up their youngest son, leaving him on the doorstep for Irene to find with a note from Sara saying that was her son and she couldn’t care for him, leaving Irene to finally accept Don’s claims about Sara. After decades of captivity, Sara finally escapes, and her family learns the devastating truth about what had been going on for over 20 years right beneath their feet.

After Girl in the Basement, viewers can stick around for Beyond the Headlines: Surviving Child Abduction and Imprisonment, which features interviews with two survivors: Lori Poland, kidnapped at 3 and left for dead in an outhouse in 1983, and Katie Beers, abducted and imprisoned for 17 days by a family friend in 1992. The two women will “recount their abduction experiences and share their insight on overcoming and transcending past their childhood traumas.”

Rohm, who has starred in several Lifetime movies herself, said in a statement that she is “beyond grateful” to be given the chance to make this movie for Lifetime.

“I am profoundly impressed with Lifetime for making this brave movie,” said Rohm. “As I step behind the camera for the first time, I am beyond grateful and indebted to Tanya Lopez for being my champion and making this moment in my life possible. Thanks to Sebastian Dungan who developed the project and believed in the story from the start. I am profoundly grateful to my creative EP Manu Boyer for guiding me as a first-time director and sharing in our third movie collaboration. I am humbled by the support of my Lifetime family for pushing me to this next step in my career.”

Girl in the Basement premieres Saturday, February 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed immediately by the documentary Beyond the Headlines: Surviving Child Abduction and Imprisonment at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
