Now there's a trailer for the new Lifetime movie starring Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig.

As you may know, there is a real, actual Lifetime movie coming out that stars two of the funniest SNL alums, and it's basically completely making fun of Lifetime movies. Earlier this week, we got to see the billboard. The movie is called A Deadly Adoption, and the tagline is "The birth of a plan gone wrong."

It's about a married couple who take in a pregnant woman with hopes of adopting her unborn child. Which leads to some gun-pointing, an attempt to run over Will Ferrell in a speeding car, and probably a lot of other drama. It looks kind of like a mix of the season of Parenthood when Julia wants to adopt the office coffee cart girl's child, every actual Lifetime movie, and Anchorman. That is definitely not a combination I've seen before.

My favorite part of this trailer is the end, when Will Ferrell, empty of context and in a super creepy voice, tells the pregnant woman, "You really are a strange girl." I hope when the full-length movie comes out, that is the entire scene.

Is it me, or is Lifetime being really cool lately? With that Shiri Appleby show that's supposed to be really good and now this, whatever marketing scheme they're up to is completely working on me.
