Brittany Murphy Biopic Airing on Lifetime - Meet the Film's Star

Brittany Murphy‘s life is being turned into a two-hour television movie that will air on Lifetime next month.

The Brittany Murphy Story, the first long-form scripted project about the actress, will air on Saturday, September 6, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actress chosen to play the title role is Amanda Fuller, who is best known for her work on Last Man Standing and Grey’s Anatomy.

The film will reportedly tell the story of Brittany‘s younger years during which her mother Sharon Murphy tried to turn her daughter into a star. It leads up to her death and will also cover the aftermath, “when her mother dealt with claims that her daughter’s death was not accidental.”

Brittany died on December 20, 2009 from pneumonia and other causes. Her husband Simon Monjack died five months later from the same cause.
