A Deadly Adoption Trailer: Will Ferrell Faces Crazy Surrogate, Endless Tropes

Lifetime just released the extended trailer for Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s highly-anticipated film A Deadly Adoption (Saturday, 8/7c)  and let me tell you, this thing looks layered.

The super-serious poster and teaser trailer left much to the imagination, but this new footage spells the whole plot out in black and white: Wiig and Ferrell’s characters, unable to conceive a child on their own, invite Jessica Lowndes’ sexy surrogate to live with them in exchange for her still-gestating baby — only nothing goes according to plan. I’m talking marital spats, forbidden trysts, the works.

In other words, it’s exactly what you’d expect from a Lifetime original movie, down to the twist(?) ending in which Lowndes’ character goes full-psycho and hunts down Ferrell with a gun. (Twenty bucks says Wiig saves the day!)
