Nancy Grace To Produce Lifetime Movie Based On Novel

HLN host and former "Dancing With The Stars" competitor Nancy Grace will produce a film for Lifetime.

Grace will produce a movie based off her debut thriller, "The Eleventh Victim." Deadline reported that "90210" star Jennie Garth will star in the film as the lead character, Hailey Dean, whose fiance is murdered. Grace will serve as the executive producer.

Though the book is entirely a work of fiction, Grace is also a victim of a violent crime. Her fiance was murdered when she was in college, prompting her career prosecuting violent crimes and advocating on behalf of victims.
