If Drew Peterson gets his way, the TV movie in which Rob Lowe is playing the accused murderer will cease production immediately, reports Reuters.
Peterson’s lawyer sent a cease and desist letter to the people involved in the Lifetime film "Ladykiller: The Drew Peterson Story," naming Lowe, Lifetime, A&E Television, Disney/ABC Television Group, Hearst Corp. and others.
Walter Maksym, the attorney, complained that potential jurors for Peterson’s trial could be influenced by the film. Peterson will be tried for the death of his third wife, Kathleen Savio, who he claims died from an accidental drowning in the couple’s bathtub. Peterson has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from her 2004 death.
Maksym sent the letter on Wednesday, writing that the film was based on suspect material, "an extremely opinionated, blatantly biased, less than seriously researched and defamatory book."
Peterson’s fourth wife, Stacy Peterson, reportedly disappeared in 2007 in a case that remains unsolved. Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory” is lined up to play Stacy Peterson in the film.
