Keke Palmer Films Lifetime’s ‘Abducted: The Carlina White Story’
Production has begun on Lifetime’s latest original movie, Abducted: The Carlina White Story. The telepic, directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall, is based on the true story of Carlina White, a black woman who solved her own kidnapping mystery and reunites herself with her birth parents after 23 years.
Rising actress Keke Palmer (Joyful Noise) leads the cast as Carlina with Sherri Shepherd and Roger R. Cross playing her birth parents. Aunjanue Ellis (The Help) will play Ann Pettway, the woman who abducted Caroline from a Harlem hospital in 1987 and raised her in a nearby Connecticut town.
Abducted: The Carlina White Story will air later this year on Lifetime.
