On June 13 at 8 PM is the world premiere of I Killed My BFF: The Babysitter. The movie was inspired by a true crime story that was part of the I Killed My BFF series.

The movie keeps the viewer guessing until the end.
Also inspired by a true story, Lifetime presents the world premiere of Perfect High on June 27 at 8 PM. A dancer who is a star in her high school injures her knee and finds herself sidelined. Trying to cope with the pain, she starts taking prescription pain killers and when she finds herself feeling isolated, she ends up adopted by a popular group. The group leads to her not only sharing her pills, but also taking part in “pharm” parties. When she runs out of pills, the group turns to buying pills, only to learn that their classmate has been selling them heroin, rather than the cheap pain killers they thought they were getting.
