NEW YORK (AP) -- A new thriller starring Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig will air later this month on Lifetime.

The network says "A Deadly Adoption" will premiere June 20 at 8 p.m. EDT.

The movie is described as a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a couple (Ferrell and Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes, "90210") during the final months of her pregnancy with the hopes of adopting her unborn child.

The fate of the film seemed in question a few weeks ago when its planned secrecy was spoiled. Ferrell issued a statement that he and Wiig thought it was "in the best interest for everyone to forego the project entirely." But his statement was quickly assumed to be a joke by the "Saturday Night Live" alums.
