Lifetime is bringing their original movie Return To Zero to the UK within 24 hours of its US broadcast. Lifetime UK has announced that the film, which features an A-List cast, will debut on Sunday May 18th at 9pm.
Return To Zero follows the story of Maggie and Aaron who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their first child. Just a few weeks before their son’s due date, Maggie and Aaron receive devastating news a heartbeat is no longer detectable in the womb. As the couple attempt to go on with their lives, they quickly discover they cannot escape their grief and their relationship is forever changed by their loss. With infidelity and separation at their heels, Maggie discovers she is pregnant again, and the two must reunite to face another turbulent and terrifying pregnancy that tests their strength and love. The film, based on a true story from writer and director Sean Hanish, is produced by Cannonball Productions and stars Minnie Driver, Paul Adelstein, Alfred Molina, Connie Nielsen and Kathy Baker.
The film’s premiere in the UK marks a first for Lifetime. This is the first time that A+E Networks has rolled out a global premiere for one of their Lifetime original movies. The film premieres state-side on Saturday May 17th, with the UK premiere following less than 24 hours later.
