Lifetime is joining the JonBenet Ramsey craze with the TV movie JonBenet, starring Eion Bailey as the detective who originally investigated the case.

Starting with the 911 call and investigation led by Detective Steve Thomas (Bailey), JonBenét will examine what happened in December 1996, when Ramsey (Payton Lepinski) was found beaten and strangled in the family’s basement.

JonBenet is produced by EveryWhere Studios and Brightlights.

Jason Lapeyre (Restless Virgins) directs from a script written by Brian L. Ross (Love by Chance).

The TV movie comes as the 20th anniversary of the former child beauty queen’s death is rapidly approaching. CBS is set to examine the case in the fall, with its limited docuseries helping to open the network’s new broadcast season. Investigation Discovery also is taking on the unsolved case with a three-night series due in September, and the feature film Casting JonBenet also is in the works.

Police found her body in the basement of the family’s home eight hours after she had been reported missing. The 6-year-old was found struck on the head and strangled. Colorado officials initially suspected Ramsey’s parents and her older brother of being involved in her death; the family was partially exonerated in 2003 when DNA taken from the victim’s clothing suggested they were not involved. Her parents were completely cleared in July 2008. A year later, the Boulder Police Department took the case back from the D.A. and reopened the investigation. After several grand jury hearings, Ramsey’s slaying remains unsolved.

They operate in a seemingly serene cosmopolitan city whose underside acts as a haven for drug barons, fugitives and covert financiers.
