Psychological Thriller to Premiere in 2011
LOS ANGELES, CA (September 24, 2010) – Entertainment icon Heather Locklear (Lifetime’s Flirting with Forty) has been cast to star in the Lifetime Original Movie He Loves Me. The psychological thriller will premiere in 2011.
By all appearances in He Loves Me, Laura (Locklear) believes she leads the idyllic life. She’s a successful Seattle real estate agent, presumably happily married to one of the city’s leading cardiologists and mother to their darling six year old daughter. When Laura begins to suspect her husband is cheating on her, she is devastated by his infidelity, despite having a torrid affair of her own. Desperately trying to save her marriage, Laura’s mysterious past begins to emerge, making her more paranoid, delusional and violent in alarming ways. As her mental state continues to unravel, whoever gets in the way of Laura’s myriad of fantasies becomes expendable -- no matter who they are – revealing the shocking dream world that insulates her from reality.
