Watch: How "Menendez Brothers" Stars Prepped to Play Real-Life Murderers
The trial that enraptured a nation is once again in the spotlight.
Lifetime's Menendez: Blood Brothers is set to premiere on Sunday, giving viewers an intimate look into the lives of Lyle and Erik Menendez, the Beverly Hills brothers who were convicted of murdering their parents in 1996, with their trials dominating headlines for years in the mid-'90s.
But given the recent true crime trend, their legal battles following the 1989 murders of Jose and Mary "Kitty" Menendez, Lyle and Erik are once again poised to be all over America's TV screens, just with actors now sporting their infamous pastel polos and expensive watches.
Nico Tortorella and Mylo Olivier play Lyle and Erik in the TV movie, which will go into the alleged sexual abuse the brothers endured during their childhood, while Courtney Love makes a memorable turn as their mother, Kitty.
Lifetime isn't the only network taking on the infamous trial, as NBC is set to premiere Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders in the fall, with Emmy winner Edie Falco playing defense attorney Leslie Abramson and Gus Halper as Erik Menendez. And judging from the first trailer, it looks like their take may also showcase the brothers in a sympathetic light.
