Brittany Murphy is the latest star whose life is being given the Lifetime Original Movie treatment.
The network recently announced plans to honor the late actress with The Brittany Murphy Story, set to air Sept. 6.
Amanda Fuller—best known for Last Man Standing—will portray the Clueless star in the first long-form scripted feature about the actress’ life while her mother Sharon will be portrayed by Twin Peaks star Sherilyn Fenn.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news of the upcoming biopic, the subject matter will cover Brittany’s humble beginnings as a young actress up until her death. Additionally, it will touch on how Sharon dealt with the aftermath of Brittany passing, including allegations that the cause of death was not the result of pneumonia, which was initially reported by the coroner.
