A week after Lifetime brought us The Wrong Crush, the network brings us The Wrong Bed: Naked Pursuit. The new film, based on the book Naked Pursuit by Jill Monroe, debuts on Lifetime at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, July 8. Read on for a preview of the film and to meet the cast.
The Wrong Bed, which aired on Lifetime Movie Network last month, stars Jewel Staite (Stargate: Atlantis) as Stella Williams, who wakes up to find herself handcuffed to firefighter Owen Michaels (Corey Sevier, Immortals) in a hotel room. They find messages on their phones that drop hints about how they ended up in this mess and learn their lives are in danger. While trying to escape, we see flashbacks that reveal how Stella got there. Unfortunately, the danger is right on their tails so they have to piece together their memories as soon as possible.
The film is based on Jill Monroe‘s book Naked Pursuit, which is part of her The Wrong Bed series. The script was written by Angela Russel and Roma Roth. This is Russel’s first credit, but Roth is an experienced writer of made-for-TV movies, having also written Deadly Secrets By The Lake, The Stepchild and The Toyman Killer.
Monkia Mitchell directed The Wrong Bed. Her other credits include the TV movies Revenge Porn, Pretty Little Addict, All Yours and Mother of All Lies.
