Death of a Cheerleader (Lifetime 2 Feb 2019, Aubrey Peeples, Sarah Dugdale)



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

In a remake of the 1994 cult-classic, Death of a Cheerleader is inspired by Randall Sullivan’s Rolling Stone article of the same name about the real-life murder of a popular, affluent and beautiful Northern California high school cheerleader at the hand of a classmate.

Bridget Moretti (Aubrey Peeples) is a shy outsider from a lower middle-class background who aspires to be beautiful, popular and perfect in everything. Believing that a friendship with rich and pretty Kelly Locke (Sarah Dugdale), leader of the school’s most prestigious clique, will get her all that she desires, Bridget tries to forge a friendship with her.

When Kelly rejects Bridget’s attempts, it leaves her humiliated and feeling like a failure and ultimately fuels a jealous rage that will lead to murder.

Death of a Cheerleader explores the events leading up to and after the shocking crime that took place in this upper-middle class community. Kellie Martin, who starred alongside Tori Spelling in the original, plays the FBI agent who cracks the case.
