Lifetime;s Buried in Barstow is just the first in a series of movies, the network confirmed.
The channel revealed that development on a second film is already underway, and has plans for more, and star Angie Harmon opened up about bringing more of Hazel King’s story to viewers.
“This is actually a new experience for me,” Angie shared with press. “I kind of didn’t really understand how we were supposed to do this and then film it and then how much of the original script we’re supposed to put in this one. So it was kind of a learning experience for me.”
She added that she’s “thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m curious to see how the audience responds to it. But then I just sort of justified it in my head as we go to the theatre or we watch movies that are two hours long, and then there’s a sequel, and then there’s a third. So I was just like, oh, well, they’ve been doing this since the beginning of filmmaking.”
Here’s the logline for Buried in Barstow: “Plucked off the streets of Las Vegas at 15, Hazel was trained as a hit woman until a surprising pregnancy drives her to leave it all behind. Now over a decade later, Hazel is the owner of a BBQ diner in Barstow, CA, whose past eventually catches up with her as a stranger Elliot arrives and Hazel discovers mixing business with pleasure as she’s pulled back in for one more hit.”
Buried in Barstow will be back on Lifetime TONIGHT, June 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT with an “enhanced” version.
