Produced by Studio Lambert and All3Media America, Spelling hopes to tell the story of this difficult time in her life rather than allow the media to do it.

Spelling, McDermott and Robert Sizemore of Big Country Entertainment and Greg Goldman, Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert of Studio Lambert/All3Media America will serve as executive producers. Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Paul Hardy will also executive-produce.
