A Deadly Adoption is really happening, people! Yes, the billboard has been out there, but now Lifetime has released honest-to-goodness footage from Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig's new TV movie. It's going to be great.

According to a Lifetime release, the movie is "inspired by a true story" and it's a "high-stakes dramatic thriller" about a power couple played by Wiig and Ferrell who house and care for a pregnant woman played by 90210's Jessica Lowndes in hopes of adopting her unborn child.

The short spot features an ominous voiceover, of course, a bloodied Ferrell, a bloodied Wiig with a gun and an idyllic lake where things are bound to go wrong.

The movie was first announced in April. But then Ferrell said they weren't going to release it. "We are deeply disappointed that our planned top secret project was made public. Kristen and I have decided it is in the best interest for everyone to forego the project entirely, and we thank Lifetime and all the people who were ready to help us make this film," his statement read. Then Lifetime said they were still weighing their options. And now we're here.

A Deadly Adoption premieres Saturday, June 20 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
