Law & Order did it — now its Lifetime’s turn. The Network for Women is planning a dramatization of the infamous teen “pregnancy pact” that made national headlines last year.
In June 2008, Americans watched in shock as 17 pregnant high schoolers in Gloucester, Mass. — none older than 16 — who supposedly had a pact to become pregnant at the same time and raise their children together.
Pregnancy Pact will be produced by Von Zerneck-Sertner films, the same people behind Lifetime’s Natalee Holloway movie. While the movie isn’t expected to replicate the events in Gloucester, the affair will be used as it inspiration, according to Variety.
