Jennie Garth Nancy Grace
Deadline broke the news of Garth landing the role in ‘Nancy’s Grace’s Eleventh Hour,’ a made-for-TV movie adaptation of the CNN talking head’s first novel. Garth will play Atlanta Assistant DA, Hailey Dean whose big courtroom win comes back to haunt her when the prostitute-murdering serial killer she put away starts offing her patients when Dean moves to New York to work as therapist.
Though not an autobiographical tale, Garth’s character has a lot in common with Grace, herself, who served as a Special Prosecutor in Georgia’s District Attorney’s office before making the transition to tabloid TV. Also both are apparently blonde.
Aside from penning the source material, Grace is also serving as executive producer on the project. Hang in there, Jennie.
