The following is a real promo I saw on Lifetime tonight as I was watching The American President. It was an ad for a made-for-television movie called The Governor's Wife and it ran pretty much every commercial break until I eventually memorized it.
An ominous voice begins, “She fell in love with the governor’s son...”
There’s a shot of a young man -- ostensibly the aforementioned governor’s son -- slipping an engagement ring onto a young woman’s finger, chirping, “I guess this makes it official!”
The voiceover continues, “...and into the trap of...the governor's wife.”
The next scene shows a glowering Marilu Henner saying, “You will never fit in!”
The young girl is seen running through a field at night looking panicked. Then Marilu Henner is climbing up some stairs calling, “Come out, come out, wherever you are!” The young girl is trapped in a room, banging on the door sobbing.
The voiceover intones, “Tomorrow at 8 p.m...”
I am so Tivo-ing this.
