Fallen Angels Murder Club with Toni Braxton Returns To Lifetime For The Anthology Event Series


( ENSPIRE Entertainment ) Lifetime Movie Fallen Angels Murder Club’s All-Star Cast Includes Eddie Cibrian and Kelly Hu

This spring, GRAMMY® winner Toni Braxton returns to Lifetime to executive produce and star in the Fallen Angels Murder Club anthology movie series as Hollis Morgan, an ex-con turned amateur sleuth set out to investigate a series of murders at her book club. The first movie, Fallen Angels Murder Club: Friends to Die For premieres on Saturday, April 2 at 8/7c and will be followed by the second installment, Fallen Angels Murder Club: Heroes and Felons on Saturday, April 9. The movies are based on the books Fallen Angels Book Club by R. Franklin James.

In the first installment, Fallen Angels Murder Club: Friends to Die For, the members of the Fallen Angels Murder Club must have two things in common – a love for books and have a criminal record. Hollis Morgan (Braxton) meets both requirements. Left holding the bag in an insurance fraud scheme concocted by her ex-husband, Hollis served her time and now hopes the court will pardon her conviction so she can fulfill her dream of becoming a lawyer.

But when a member of her book club is murdered in a scene straight out of the previous night’s novel, Hollis becomes the subject of police scrutiny. Refusing to get stuck with another bad rap, Hollis sets out to investigate her fellow club members and after a second book-inspired murder, she races to identify the killer before she becomes the next victim. This movie also stars Eddie Cibrian (Northern Lights, CSI Miami).

In the second movie, Fallen Angels Murder Club: Heroes and Felons, the members of the Fallen Angels Murder Club must band together again as they search for answers surrounding the death of one of their own. Hollis finds herself at the center of the investigation when a journalist reporting on the murder also winds up dead. As bodies begin to stack up, and Hollis connects the dots, she must solve the murders before its too late. Kelly Hu (List of a Lifetime, Scorpion King) also stars.
