Lifetime is finishing a movie about Lori Vallow Daybell called "Doomsday Mom" based on the true story of her and what happened to her Idaho kids. The movie is set to air June 26th. To be honest with a crazy plot like this I am surprised a bigger network didn't swipe this up before Lifetime.

According to the networks description: "As investigators learned of Lori and her husband Chad Daybell’s involvement in a doomsday-prepper group, a trail of mystery was revealed spanning five states and numerous questionable deaths, before the bodies of JJ and Tylee were found in the backyard of Chad’s home in June 2020."

According to CBS 2, Chad and Lori are being held on $1 million bonds for concealing and conspiracy to alter evidence related to the bodies of JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan being found on Chad's property in Salem.

So who will portray Lori and Chad? Lauren Lee Smith is set for Lori and for Chad, it will be Marc Blucas. I hope they have enough crazy in them to pull it off. Linda Purl and Patrick Duffy also star.

If you are just catching up on the outrageous case here are some clips and tidbits from Wikipedia to catch you up: "Tylee Ashlyn Ryan and Joshua Jaxon "J. J." Vallow were two American children from Rexburg, Idaho, who went missing in September 2019 and were found deceased in June 2020. In November 2019, police questioned their mother, Lori Vallow Daybell, about the children. Her and her new husband, Chad Guy Daybell, claimed that J.J. was staying with a family friend in Arizona, which turned out to be a lie. Police then found out that J.J's older sister, Tylee Ryan, was also missing."

Long crazy story short the investigation turned up other suspicious deaths. Multiple ones were linked to Lori's, most of them being her ex's. Also Chads ex had strange things around her death. In February 2020, Lori was arrested in Kauai and brought back to Idaho. She and Chad have been through over a year of trials in the gem state. It should make for one crazy movie.
