(Jacksonville, Florida) Congresswoman Corrine Brown is coming to the small screen. Jacksonville’s leading lady in politics will be portrayed by Michael Hyatt, an actress known for appearances on HBO series and her performance in Broadway’s Ragtime will play Corrine Brown in Left to Die.
The movie is set to debut on Lifetime Movie Network (LMN) this weekend.
Academy Award® and Screen Actors Guild® nominee and Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning actress Barbara Hershey (“Once Upon a Time”, “Black Swan”) stars in the Lifetime Original Movie “Left to Die” as Sandra Chase, an American mother of two wrongly sent to an
Ecuadorian prison for drug trafficking. Produced by Sony Pictures Television and based on a true story, film and television veteran Rachael Leigh Cook (“Perception”, “She’s All That”) also stars as Sandra’s determined daughter, Tammi Chase, in the movie.
Having never left the United States, Sandra Chase (Hershey) bravely agrees to accompany a friend to Ecuador for a much needed vacation; but paradise quickly turns to misery when she is accosted at the airport in Quito and is unjustly imprisoned for drug trafficking.
With no trial or any recourse, Sandra is sent to a women’s prison with subpar living conditions and is terrorized by the other inmates. Meanwhile, Sandra’s daughter Tammi (Cook) is vigilantly working on getting her mother released from prison with limited knowledge of the laws and legal processes of Ecuador.
Unwavering in her belief of her mother’s innocence, Tammi is forced to drain her life savings while fighting with embassies and governments as she races against time to save her mother.
In Tammi’s determined fight for justice, she recruits a U.S. Congresswoman,
Rep. Corinne Brown, and together they prevail in securing Sandra Chase’s release.
