The Lifetime movie about Carlina White — the baby stolen from Harlem Hospital in 1987 and raised in Bridgeport by Ann Pettway — will make its debut Saturday, Oct. 6. Lifetime put out a release announcing the air date on Tuesday. The movie “Abducted: The Carlina White Story,” stars Aunjanue Ellis (The Help) as Pettway, and Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) as Carlina, whom Pettway raised as Nejdra “Netty” Nance. The movie also stars “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd.
Immediately following the movie, Lifetime will premiere the hour-long documentary, Beyond the Headlines: Carlina White, featuring interviews with Carlina telling her own story, as well as her birth parents and the family of her kidnapper as they offer their own perspectives about the case.
