Former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sarah Drew is set to take on a new role in the murder-mystery film “How She Caught a Killer.” After her unexpected departure from the popular medical drama in 2018, Drew found a new home at Lifetime, where she initially signed a two-film contract. Their collaboration has been successful, leading to her fifth movie with the network. In this upcoming thriller, Drew will portray Linda Murphy, a rookie detective who embarks on a personal mission to investigate a chilling case involving a serial killer targeting sex workers. Despite her limited experience, Linda chooses to go undercover in her pursuit of justice and to apprehend the murderer. The movie, described as a gripping tale inspired by real events, sheds light on a distressing issue that has been explored in other films, such as the acclaimed Iranian drama “Holy Spider.”
Joining Drew in the cast is Eric Keenleyside, known for his role in “Superman & Lois,” who portrays Linda’s superior, Detective David Goodman. Jamall Johnson from “Firefly Lane” takes on the role of Linda’s FBI partner, Neil Carter, while Delilah Hamlin from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” plays an aspiring nurse with a troubled past, serving as the catalyst for the investigation. Additional cast members for the movie have yet to be announced, but Drew is also involved as an executive producer for the thrilling story.
Drew’s collaboration with Lifetime has not only allowed her to continue working with the network beyond the initial two-film deal but has also provided her with the opportunity to contribute creatively to her projects. This indicates that the actress has gained a level of creative control over the movies she stars in. Prior to her involvement with Lifetime, Drew spent nine seasons on the set of “Grey’s Anatomy” from 2009 to 2018. She has also appeared in other notable shows such as Apple TV+’s family series “Amber Brown” and Freeform’s thriller series “Cruel Summer.” Her previous work includes roles in “Mad Men,” “Glee,” and “Everwood.”
Further details about “How She Caught a Killer,” including the trailer and release date, are yet to be announced by Lifetime. In the meantime, fans can watch a clip from Drew’s previous Lifetime movie, “Reindeer Games Homecoming,” for a taste of her recent work.
