Check out the new poster below.
“It’s not just a disturbing nursery rhyme! Now the true story of how Lizzie Borden murdered her parents (or did she?) in the summer of 1892 is being brought to Lifetime, with Christina Ricci as the eponymous Lizzie. The true-crime case captured national attention when it first happened, proving that Americans obsession with scandalous and sordid tales is nothing new.”
‘Lizzie Borden Took an Ax’ premieres on Lifetime 25 January at 8:00pm ET.
