Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) is set to star in a new Lifetime movie, called Girl In Room 13.

The movie is another ripped-from-the-headlines pic inspired by true events.  Girl In Room 13 explores the dark underworld of the multi-billion-dollar human trafficking industry.  Elizabeth Rohm will direct.

Heche takes on the role of Janie with When Calls the Heart’s Laurissa Dias as her daughter, Grace who is abducted by human traffickers.

According to Deadline, the log lines share: “Girl in Room 13 examines the story of Grace (Dias), who was addicted to opioids after her doctor prescribed them for a sports injury at a very young age and after three stints in rehab, she is finally ready to turn her life around. Under the watchful eye of her mother, Janie (Heche), Grace takes on a job at her family’s restaurant. But her past will not let her go and when her friend coerces her into meeting her former love interest and drug dealer, Richie (played by Max Montesi), she finds herself imprisoned in a hotel room with no way out. Held captive, Richie repeatedly violates Grace, forces her to consume drugs and alcohol, and starves her — all to break her down so that she becomes compliant and can be sold into human trafficking. Refusing to give up on her daughter even when her husband and the local police believe Grace has returned to a life of using, Janie starts an all-out hunt to find Grace. Stopping at nothing, Janie discovers the dark world of human trafficking and the shocking statistics about its widespread victims and its unexpected accomplices.”

Girl In Room 13 is the next movie in Lifetime’s “Girl In” franchise which includes: Girl in the Basement, Girl in the Shed, Girl in the Box and Girl in the Bunker.

Yes I will watch Anne Heche in practically anything. I especially love her Christmas movies, ONE CHRISTMAS EVE, LOOKS LIKE CHRISTMAS, and SILVER BELLS. She’s a wonderful actress who gets a bad rap for some strange behavior back in the 90s. Who cares? She’s always good and this storyline is compelling and timely. Sometimes I lament living in a world where I know what “human trafficking” is. What horror!

I like Anne Heche too but after reading the details above it’s too much for me. I saw her in a series a few years ago I enjoyed, Men In Treees and loved her co-star too, James Tupper, whom I also loved in Revenge.
As far as the 90s you mentioned , it didn’t help her image being with one of the people she was with, no offense I hope, I can’t keep my mouth shut.
