Story


Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Rob Lowe stars in the new Lifetime Original Movie "Prosecuting Casey Anthony." Lowe portrays Jeff Ashton, the Florida prosecutor in last year's controversial Caylee Anthony murder trial and author of the best-selling book Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony, upon which the movie is based.

"Prosecuting Casey Anthony" reveals Ashton's inside story of the true crime drama that captivated and then shocked the nation when Caylee Anthony's mother, Casey, was acquitted of killing her daughter, despite what many thought to be overwhelming evidence of guilt. The movie is seen from Ashton's (Lowe) perspective and it takes viewers behind-the-scenes of both the investigation into Caylee's tragic death and the ensuing trial, shedding new light on the many questions of what happened to the two year-old girl, how Ashton and his fellow prosecutors built their case and why a woman so shrouded in suspicion was proclaimed innocent. With in-depth information about the case and the accused, "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong and why Ashton remains convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..while "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" does a decent job of re-creating the trial and media frenzy surrounding it, it fails to offer theories as to why the jury didn't convict her of murder..”
by Curt Wagner [RedEye]
“..a surprisingly revisionist take on one of the most controversial trials of the decade -- from someone (Ashton) you'd least expect revisionism from..”
by Verne Gay [Newsday]
“.."Prosecuting Casey Anthony" certainly isn't deep, with only flashes of profundity regarding what these sensational trials say about our culture..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
