Lifetime announces Jodi Arias biopic premiere date

A Lifetime biopic about a woman convicted of murdering her ex-boyfriend now has a premiere date.

Jodi Arias

“Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” will premiere June 22 at 8 p.m.

Arias was convicted of first-degree murder last week for Travis Alexander’s murder. His throat was reportedly slashed, he was stabbed numerous times and had a bullet in his head. She could face the death penalty.

Lifetime will air an hour-long documentary, “Jodi Arias: Beyond the Headlines,” offering “an in-depth look at Arias’ and Alexander’s tragic relationship and his murder, as told by Arias herself, as well as his sister, brother and close friends.” It will be produced by CBS Eye Productions.

“Her subsequent trial has been grand theater, dominating the cable news networks as she testified in her own defense and offered explicit insight into the sex, lies and obsession that led up to Alexander's murder,” the release said.

“Beyond the Headlines” will air immediately after the premiere of “Dirty Little Secret.”

Tania Raymonde will play Arias. Jesse Lee Soffer (“The Mob Doctor”) will play Alexander. Tony Plana (“Ugly Betty”) will play Arias’ prosecutor Juan Martinez. David Zayas (“Dexter”) plays detective Esteban Flores.

The film’s production finished last week, though there is still time to include the outcome of the trial’s penalty phase if it comes before the air date.
