It's been five years since Murphy's sudden death. (Her husband, Simon Monjack, died just five months later.) The beloved actress' passing was mysterious — an element that made her story all the more appealing to the dramatic movie network.
This new trailer gives a sneak peek at the kind of moments we all expect from a Lifetime TV movie. Flashes of Murphy looking bewildered are followed by phrases like "targeted" and "afraid for her life." The network is known for playing up the dramatic parts of a story — a practice that led Zendaya to leave her role in the anticipated Aaliyah biopic. But, those looking for an homage to Murphy — rather than a murder mystery — may be left wanting. Lifetime's film premieres September 6 at 8 p.m. Ahead, the trailer. (BuzzFeed)
