MOTHER, MAY I SLEEP WITH DANGER? to Premiere on Lifetime in June


The cult TV movie MOTHER, MAY I SLEEP WITH DANGER? is getting a remake for its 20th anniversary as Lifetime has teamed up with James Franco for a new version of the film, complete with vampires (no, seriously).

Here’s how Lifetime describes the new film: “When theater major Leah (George), brings home the special someone in her life to meet her mom, Julie (Spelling), the family is met with a surprise when Pearl (Meade) comes to the door. Julie tries to embrace the idea of Leah’s new love interest, but she can’t shake the feeling that something is very wrong. Julie’s suspicions lead to a startling discovery about Pearl that puts Leah in serious danger. Will Julie be able to save her daughter from an eternity of heartache before it’s too late?”

The film stars Franco and reunites Tori Spelling and Ivan Sergei from the original film and also features Leila George (THE LONG HOME), Emily Meade (BROAD CITY) and Nick Eversman (WILD).

MOTHER, MAY I SLEEP WITH DANGER? will premiere on Saturday, June 18 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
