Lifetime is once again bringing the popular and twisted V.C. Andrews stories to their network, with the four-part tale, Flowers In The Attic: The Origin. Here, viewers get to see the very dark, Gothic OG story of the Foxworth family.
This is a star-studded and opulent series. It stars Jemima Rooper (Lost In Austen), Max Irons (Condor), Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Harry Hamlin (Mad Men), Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), Alana Boden (I Am Elizabeth Smart), Hannah Dodd (Harlots), T’Shan Williams (The Color Purple), Callum Kerr (Four Weddings and a Funeral), Luke Fetherston (Pandora), and Buck Braithwaite (Fair Play).
This series is divided into four parts, aired on consecutive Saturdays. Here is what we know about Part 1.
What Are The Flowers In The Attic Series About?
According to The Futon Critic, Flowers in the Attic: The Origin features Olivia Winfield (Rooper). She is considered “headstrong and determined.”
Olivia adores her doting father, Mr. Winfield (Hamlin). The two work in harmony together. That is, until one of the most eligible bachelors in their nature, Malcolm Foxworth (Irons) begins to woo and pursue her.
Everything happens pretty fast, and soon, Olivia is the mistress of Foxworth Hall. However, although she first thought her life was now like a fairy tale, she finds herself thrust into a dark world.
The house is far from magical. It is cold and imposing. The same could be said of its master. Malcolm is as twisted and cruel. His charm had carefully hidden cruelty and evil that entraps Olivia.
Worst of all, Olivia now must protect her children. However, her measure is extreme. She is forced to lock her grandchildren in the attic.
How did an independent woman get to this point? you will have to watch and see!
