'A Deadly Adoption': A Deadly Adoption Starring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig Preview
Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig are in for "A Deadly Adoption" in the latest trailer for their upcoming send-up of Lifetime movies (which just so happens to be a Lifetime movie itself).

The flick focuses on a picture-perfect couple (Ferrell and Wiig) who are looking to adopt a baby, and wind up with a crazy birth mother ("90210" alum Jessica Lowndes) at their doorstep. It turns out that she's got her sights set on husband Robert, and wants Wiig out of the picture. (In case there's any confusion about that, she literally rips a picture of the couple in half so only Robert's portion remains.)

"You're going to have a perfect life, too, someday, I promise," Wiig sweetly tells Lowndes.

"I hope it's in a town like this, with a family like yours," Lowndes replies. Cue sinister music, lots of lingering looks at Lowndes's cleavage, a gunfight, and plenty of screaming and crying. It would look exactly like a real, honest-to-goodness Lifetime movie if we didn't already know it was a spoof.

And that's the entire point, apparently. While "A Deadly Adoption" is indeed a parody, Ferrell and Wiig take the material deadly seriously (it was written by Andrew Steele, who also penned Ferrell's 2012 telenovela spoof "Casa di me Padre"), playing their characters straight in the face of the heightened ridiculousness that unfolds. We can't wait to watch the entire flick.

Check out the trailer (which debuted on Yahoo! TV) below. "A Deadly Adoption" is due on Lifetime on June 20.
