Courtney Love Menendez Brothers

TVLine Items: Courtney Love Cast as Menendez Mom, Trek Preview and More

Another Menendez brothers TV project is in the works, but only Lifetime’s can boast that it has Courtney Love.

The singer-actress will star in an original movie for the network, focusing on the abuse the siblings endured from their father while their mother Kitty (played by Love) looked the other way, our sister site Deadline reports.

Love — who was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for The People vs. Larry Flynt — most recently appeared on the small screen in Revenge and Empire.

The murder trial of Lyle and Erik Menendez, who were accused of killing their parents in 1989, is no stranger to television. Earlier this month, ABC aired the two-hour documentary special Truth and Lies: The Menendez Brothers — American Sons, American Murderers, while NBC last year greenlit Law & Order: True Crime, the first season of which will focus on the Menendez trial.

    She has always been a terrific, top notch actress. Glad to see her getting work again.

  2. Steven says:

    Coming to CBS All Access… Eventually.

  3. David Graf says:

    I see that they still do not have seat belts on those chairs and so people can go tumbling across the deck in this new version of Star Trek whenever something goes wrong. But, I won’t see that as I will not pay more money each month just to see a new series.

  4. MLD says:

    Agree with those saying it all doesn’t matter given the rip-off that is CBS Access. Hope those willing to pay for it enjoy the two show on it but I will wait until I can see the shows for free somewhere else.

    Discovery seems to be running into issues even before leaving dock. With behind scenes issues wonder if the show will take flight like TNG or burn out like Enterprise

  6. Richard says:

    Why do they put geo-restrictions on the Star Trek video when it will be shown all around the world on Netflix? Makes no sense.
