to the Scene of the Crime
with a Sequel based on Last
Year's Successful Original Movie

CULVER CITY, Calif. (Nov. 23, 2015) - The iconic story of the notorious murder suspect, whose crime was so ingrained in pop culture it became the subject of a children's rhyme, continues when THE LIZZIE BORDEN CHRONICLES debuts February 2nd on DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Originally premiering April 5 on the Lifetime network as an 8-episode miniseries, the drama stars Christina Ricci reprising her role as the iconic alleged axe murderer. Featured are Clea DuVall (Argo), Cole Hauser (Transcendence), Andrew Howard (TV's Hatfields & McCoys), John Heard (TV's The Sopranos), Bradley Stryker (Bruce Almighty) and Jonathan Banks (TV's Better Call Saul).

THE LIZZIE BORDEN CHRONICLES is the sequel to Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, the successful 2014 Lifetime Original TV movie which premiered to 4.4 million viewers. Now fans who wondered what happened to Lizzie following the controversial acquittal of her father and stepmother's horrific murder can see what may have happened next in this fictionalized miniseries that expands on Lizzie's life, as she takes an "at any cost" approach to get what she wants.

THE LIZZIE BORDEN CHRONICLES delivers an intense and fictionalized account of actual events and people surrounding Lizzie's (Ricci) life after her controversial acquittal of the horrific double murder of her parents in 1892, when the exonerated figure lives a life awash in newfound celebrity filled with scandalous love affairs. But when numerous people close to her start to mysteriously die under brutal and strange circumstances, legendary Pinkerton detective Charlie Siringo (Hauser) becomes determined to prove her involvement in their ultimate demise.

Special Features Include:
  • Deleted Scenes
