Nicholas Sparks' 'Deliverance Creek' on Lifetime Gets Premiere Date, Trailer
Having more or less conquered the film world with his reliable and prolific romantic storytelling abilities, author Nicholas Sparks’ initial foray into television has been finally given a release date.
‘Deliverance Creek’ will debut on Lifetime on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c. The two-hour TV movie (and backdoor pilot) is written by Melissa Carter, directed by Jon Amiel, and comes from Nicholas Sparks Productions, and is in fact not based on any of his noteworthy works.
The story is set two years into the Civil War, following (southern) Belle Gatlin Barlowe as she tries to protect her family and her land by any means necessary. Corruption and greed force the hand of Belle, turning her into an outlaw and setting forth a series of events that push Belle to question her own morality.
Lauren Ambrose, best known for her role as Claire Fisher on ‘Six Feet Under,’ will portray Belle. Additionally, the movie stars Skeet Ulrich, Wes Ramsey, Christopher Backus and Katherine Willis.
Sparks, meanwhile, has seen films made from many of his works, including ‘Safe Haven,’ ‘The Lucky One,’ ‘Dear John,’ and, of course, ‘The Notebook.’ Only recently has he ventured into producing, but should this be received well, ‘Deliverance Creek’ could turn into a series.
A trailer too has been released for ‘Deliverance,’ which you can watch below. It features some angry stares, a lot of gun shots and a couple dead bodies. “Good is gone” indeed.
