Meagan Good returns to Lifetime with the latest in the Ripped from the Headlines film franchise for a new film that she’ll star in with Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix.
Buying Back My Daughter (working title) is inspired by actual events of mothers who have fought to save their daughters from sex trafficking. Good will star and executive produce. The film will also continue the network’s Stop Violence Against Women campaign.
The film marks the third time the Harlem star has partnered with Lifetime, having starred and produced Death Saved My Life and Love By the 10th Date.
Buying Back My Daughter follows a family whose teen daughter never comes home after going out for a party. Good and Roger Cross star as the teen’s parents, with Faith Wright playing their daughter. Madix stars as a police officer investigating the case while dealing her own personal connections to the story.
According to the official description:
When Dana (Meagan Good) and Curtis’ (Roger Cross) 16-year-old daughter, Alicia (Faith Wright), sneaks out of the house to attend a party, a bout with teenage rebellion quickly escalates into a widespread search party spearheaded by Dana and the police. After almost a year of searching for her missing daughter, mother’s intuition leads Dana to the salacious world of online escort ads where, to her horror, she finds her Alicia listed for sale. Dana and Curtis spring into action and attempt to “buy their daughter back” in order to rescue her from the trafficker who abducted Alicia and subjected her to unspeakable harm.
The film is produced by Front Street Pictures for distribution by Lifetime with Charles Cooper also producing. Executive producers alongside Good include Orly Adelson, Allen Lewis with James Jope as co-executive producer. The film is written by Barbara Marshall and directed by Troy Scott.
