Well, we knew it would happen, we just didn't know how quickly it would happen. Lifetime Television announced yesterday that they are producing a new movie about Keith Raniere and NXIVM. It will be called NXIVM Cult: A Mother's Nightmare, and it's based on actress Catherine Oxenberg's story of trying to get her daughter India out of the cult that was based here in the Capital Region. In the movie, actress Andrea Roth of “Rescue Me” will play the role of Catherine Oxenberg, and Jasper Polish of the “Devil’s Whisper” will portray India, according to Lifetime, which is producing the flick with Sony Pictures Television. Actor Peter Facinelli of “Twilight” will play Raniere and Sara Fletcher of “Secret Girlfriend” will portray Raniere right-hand Allison Mack, of “Smallville” fame. (see pictures above). According to Lifetime, this is the description of the movie: “When Catherine learns about a leadership seminar from a new organization called NXIVM she decides to take her 20-year-old daughter India to the professional development meeting. Led by the extremely enigmatic Keith Raniere, Catherine can’t help but shake the feeling there’s more than meets the eye with the self-help organization,” Despite Catherine’s best efforts, India is drawn deeper into the cult, eventually joining a secret sorority of female members who are branded with the cult leader’s initials, ordered to maintain a restricted diet and forced to recruit other women as sex slaves…[It] tells the story of a mother who will stop at nothing to get her daughter back.” Lifetime announced the movie less than 14 days after Keith Raniere was found guilty for running the cult.
