The Lifetime TV network has released a trailer for its television movie coming next month based on Michelle Knight’s abduction story.
The movie, “Cleveland Abduction” airs April 25 at 8 p.m.
SAG Award winner Taryn Manning (“Orange Is the New Black,” “Hustle & Flow,” “8 Mile”) stars as Michelle Knight, and SAG nominee Raymond Cruz (“Breaking Bad,” “Major Crimes”) portrays Ariel Castro in the Lifetime original movie.
Knight was abducted by Castro in Cleveland in 2002 and held captive in his home for more than 11 years.
According to Lifetime’s website, “Finding strength through her belief in God and determined to be reunited with her son, Knight refused to be broken by the twisted Castro.”
Soon after abducting Knight, Castro abducted two teenagers, Amanda Berry (Samantha Droke, “Eastwick”) and Gina DeJesus (Katie Sarife, “Supernatural”), and imprisoned them alongside Michelle, who then became a friend and sister figure to her fellow victims.
A memoir in book form from Berry and DeJesus is also expected to be released in April.
