Lifetime announced world premiere dates for a pair of mystery films based on the work of bestselling author Patricia Cornwell on Tuesday. ‘Patricia Cornwell’s At Risk" will debut on Saturday April 10 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) and "Patricia Cornwell’s The Front" will hit screens a week later on Saturday April 17 at the same time.

The television network has attracted some moderately big names, let’s call them B minus list, for the pair of Cornwell inspired films it that will begin airing in April, including Andie MacDowell, Annabeth Gish and Diahann Carroll.

In "At Risk" a rising star of the Massachusetts State Police, Win Garano (Daniel Sunjata), is sent by his boss D.A. Monique Lamont (MacDowell) to investigate a Tennessee murder that’s been unsolved for more than 20 years before. In the sequel, "The Front," Lamont and Garano reunite to investigate a decades-old murder of a young blind woman.
