Lifetime Orders Nobody Dumps My Daughter

Lifetime has secured an intriguing drama for its upcoming slate! Moviedelic can announce that the network has ordered a television film titled ‘Nobody Dumps My Daughter.’ The project’s filming will start in Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 22. Stanley Brooks (‘Bad Romance: The Vicky White Story’ and ‘Cruel Instruction’) is helming the TV movie.

The plot of the TV film revolves around a mother coping with a significant personal loss. Conflicts arise when this trauma leads her to become excessively involved in her teenage daughter’s social life. When the daughter experiences a breakup, the mother’s interference escalates, transforming her from a concerned parent into an overbearing and unstable figure.

Lifetime’s rich history of producing engaging mother-daughter stories certainly sets the bar higher for the makers. Recent examples include ‘The Replacement Daughter,’ in which a teen daughter’s life is disrupted by a caretaker with sinister intentions after her mother ends up in a coma. Last year’s lineup also included ‘Buying Back My Daughter,’ a gritty portrayal of a mother’s struggle to find her daughter following her disappearance, and ‘A Mother’s Intuition,’ which focuses on a woman discovering her baby was swapped at birth.

Additionally, the network’s previous offerings include ‘Catfish Murder,’ which revolves around a mother who fights to prove her son’s innocence after he is wrongfully accused of murder. The 2020 drama ‘You Can’t Take My Daughter,’ in which a rape victim fights to protect her newborn from the rapist, is another narrative that explores similar themes through the lens of motherhood.

Vancouver is a favored location as far as Lifetime productions are concerned. The shooting schedule aligns well with Vancouver’s summer break — which lasts until early September — allowing for convenient filming at local high school campuses if needed. The city has long been a reliable hub for entertainment production, with notable Lifetime projects such as the true crime movies ‘The Killer Inside: The Ruth Finley Story,’ ‘Devil on Campus: The Larry Ray Story,’ and ‘The Girl Locked Upstairs: The Tanya Kach Story’ filmed in the region.

In addition, other upcoming projects aiming to take advantage of summer in Vancouver include the sitcom ‘Snotty Nose Rez Kids‘—featuring local rappers Darren “Young D” Metz and Quinton “Yung Trybez” Nyce—and the Hallmark movie ‘This Time Each Year.’
