Lifetime has partnered yet again with Meagan Good (Harlem, Shazam! Fury of the Gods) to act and executive produce Buying Back My Daughter, which is based on real-life cases where mothers fight sex trafficking of their teenage daughters that go missing. Good, who has both produced and acted in Death Saved My Life and Love By the 10th Date, will work with Lifetime to bring this movie to light, driving the message behind the network’s Stop Violence Against Women campaign.
This movie follows the heels of the successful Black Girl Missing, Girl in the Closet and The Girl Who Escaped: The Kara Robinson Story. Currently under production, the movie features Ariana Madix (Vanderpump Rules), Roger Cross (Arrow), and Faith Wright (Riverdale).
The story is primarily focused on Dana (Meagan Good) and Curtis’ (Roger Cross) 16-year-old daughter, Alicia (Faith Wright). One day, Alicia sneaks out of her house to attend a party which results in a massive search operation led by her mother and the police. After fruitlessly searching for almost a year, Dana eventually discovers from online escort ads that her daughter has been sold into sex slavery. Together with Curtis, they desperately attempt to “buy back” their daughter to rescue her from the terrible situation that she has been put in. The movie also features Ariana Madix in the role of Karen, a police officer involved in the investigation, who shares a personal connection with the story.
Buying Back My Daughter is produced by Front Street Pictures for distribution by Lifetime. Produced by Charles Cooper. Executive producers are Orly Adelson, Allen Lewis, and Meagan Good with James Jope as co-executive producer. Troy Scott directs from a script written by Barbara Marshall.
Good is repped by The Gersh Agency, Atlas Artists, The Initiative Group, and Yorn, Levine, Barnes, Krintzman, Rubenstein, Kohner, Endlich & Gellman.
