Emmy-nominated performer Constance Zimmer is returning to Lifetime to direct her first feature length TV movie, “Boy in the Walls.”
The film follows newly-wed Alisa Jensen (Ryan Michelle Bathe), who struggles to acclimate to life as a stepmom living in rural Connecticut, given her lively past as a Manhattan-based bachelorette. But beyond the the typical family theatrics, Alisa discovers a sinister secret at the heart of their home: a boy named Joe (Jonathan Whitesell) spying on Alisa and her family from inside the walls.
Bathe and Whitesell will star in the project alongside fellow actors Cassandra Sawtell, Mikkal Karim-Fidler and Luke Camilleri. The film is inspired by true events of people discovering squatters secretly living inside their homes, otherwise known as “phrogging.”
Zimmer will also serve as an executive producer on the film as well as Manu Boyer, Kevin Leeson, Shawn Williamson and Jamie Goehring. The script was penned by Katrina Onstad and David Weaver, and the feature is being produced by Lighthouse Pictures.
“Boy in the Walls” is set to release at an undisclosed date later this summer.
