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.

Brittany Murphy's Mom Breaks Silence, Disputes Poison Claims

Brittany Murphy‘s name has been in the news lately nearly four years after she passed away following reports from her estranged father that new lab tests show evidence of possible foul play in her death. Now, her mother Sharon Murphy has spoken out in a lengthy open letter for The Hollywood Reporter.

“I have chosen to stay out of the limelight since the tragic and sudden death of my wonderful, talented, loving daughter four years ago this Dec. 20,” Sharon starts the letter. “From the day of her birth, Brittany was my precious, more dear to me than anything or anyone in the universe. I have been devastated by her loss and that of my son-in-law, and have remained in seclusion in my mourning.”

“I have no choice now but to come forward in the face of inexcusable efforts to smear my daughter’s memory by a man who may be her biological father, but was never a real father to her in her lifetime. Angelo Bertolotti has relocated to California in his old age to claim he is here for Brittany, as he never was in life. He has made outrageous statements over the past few years, culminating in this latest madness: that my darling daughter was murdered,” she continued.
