One week after the Lifetime channel will air Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret, the popular women's friendly network will premiere the biopic about late stripper-turned-model Anna Nicole Smith.
Lifetime's original movie The Ann Nicole Story on air on June 29, one week after the movie produced about the Arias murder trial.
Actress Agnes Bruckner, 27, will play Smith, whose birth name was Vickie Lynn Hogan. Martina Landau, 84, will star as billionaire J. Howard Marshall. The latter met Smith in a strip club and they later married.
Bruckner previously appeared in The Craigslist Killer and ABC's Private Practice. Virginia Madsen, Adam Goldberg and Cary Elwe will also appear in The Anna Nicole Story.
The film follows the story about the rise and fall of the small-town Texas woman who, as a single mother, worked in a strip club. At her job she met Marshall, an oil tycoon, and eventually married him when she was 26 and he was 89. Smith later became a successful fashion model and a poster girl for the Guess? clothing ad campaign. She was also a Playboy model, and her lifestyle and drug use made her a regular fixture in the tabloids until her death at the age of 39 from an overdose of prescription drugs in Hollywood, Fla.
Smith's death in February of 2007 took place less than six months after she gave birth to her second child. Her daughter Danielynn was born in September of 2006, the same month Smith's 20-year-old son Daniel died from drug use.
Since Marshall's death in 1995, his family has maintained an ongoing legal court battle to prevent Smith and now her estate from inheriting his fortune. On May 30, TMZ reported that a judge ruled that Smith's daughter is entitled to legal sanctions against Marshall's family. The value of the sanctions could land her a settlement up to $49 million.
