'House' Actress Makes Lifetime 'Delivery'
Lisa Edelstein, Brenda Song star in movie
Edelstein, who plays Dr. Lisa Cuddy on the FOX series, will star with Brenda Song ("The Suite Life of Zack and Cody") in "Special Delivery," which will premiere on the Lifetime Movie Network. It's slated for a late-2008 debut, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film centers on Edelstein's character, a courier named Maxine who regularly shuttles between the West Coast and Asia. Her latest run finds her transporting not a thing but a person -- snotty teenager Alice (Song), who's traveling from her father's home in China to her mother's in the United States.
Along the way, Maxine realizes that bad things await Alice when she lands, and a "Midnight Run"-style action-comedy ensues as she tries to protect her charge and ensure Alice's safe arrival.
Matt Dearborn, the creator of "Even Stevens" and a former "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Early Edition" writer, penned the script. Michael Scott, a veteran of several Lifetime movies including "Her Sister's Keeper" and "Murder on Pleasant Drive," will direct.
