Lifetime’s Buried In Barstow is an instant hit! Angie Harmon (Rizzoli & Isles, Law & Order) and Kristoffer Polaha (Jurassic World Dominion, Mystery 101), knocked it out of the park. This is a steamy ride, filled with secrets, shocks, and surprises.
However, the movie ended with a major cliffhanger. Now viewers want to know if Lifetime making a sequel to Buried In Barstow. Polaha fans are especially a little nervous, considering the unresolved Mystery 101 cliffhanger.
Don’t worry folks, this is Lifetime. They are not leaving anyone hanging. Here is what we know.
Will There Be A Sequel To Lifetime’s Buried In Barstow?
Yes, Lifetime has greenlit a sequel to Buried In Barstow. They did that back early in the year, months before the premiere. However, it has not been filmed yet. Kristoffer Polaha recently told the Deck The Hallmark podcast that they are ready to go with a second movie. Moreover, they have planned for four movies.
What I’m saying is I signed a contract with four movies. We’ve already got number two again penned. It’s ready to go, and so we’re going to start shooting that one. I don’t know exactly when, but a couple of dates have been kicked around. So, we are going to make more movies of these. But, I think they’re always waiting to see how well…like if people watch them.
It is not clear why Lifetime is waiting for viewership numbers. Perhaps this is budgetary and good viewership could mean more money? If they greenlit the second movie, it doesn’t seem likely that there are issues with the stars or story.
Buried In Barstow Was Rejected For Three Years Before Lifetime Picked It Up
Over three years ago, Angie Harmon saw the script for Buried In Barstow and knew she wanted to make this movie. However, she never imagined that she would have to fight so much rejection in the process.
Back in February, Harmon spoke to Fox News during the CTAM virtual winter press tour about this “humbling” experience. “There are just so many different facets that go into getting a project done. And this is a real learning experience. And to be very honest, I’m comfortable with the word, no. I’m just not really used to hearing it.”
However, she persisted and her tenacity paid off. Lifetime picked up the movie and made something really great.
Hazel King ‘Meaner’ Than Jane Rizzoli
In Lifetime’s Buried In Barstow, Angie Harmon portrays Hazel King, a former hit woman who is forced to return to the business for “one last hit.” TV Insider asked the actress how this character is different than her other iconic kick-butt character, Jane Rizzoli. “She’s just flat-out meaner than Jane Rizzoli.”
However, it is Hazel’s devotion to her daughter that is key to her toughness.
Her devotion to her child. Being a mom myself, when your kids get hurt, it’s difficult not to just go absolutely bonkers. Hazel got to do all the things that I’ve really wanted to do. She’s trying to be on the right path. It’s just every time she turns around, something new is happening.
