Lifetime has given the green light for “Manson’s Lost Girls,” an original telemovie about the teenage girls who fell for Charles Manson and helped him carry out his brutal murders in the late 1960s.
The film will star MacKenzie Mauzy (“Into the Woods”) as Linda Kasabian, Eden Brolin (“I Dream Too Much”) as Susan Atkins, Greer Grammar (“Awkward”) as Leslie Van Houten, Christian Madsen (“Divergent”) as Tex Watson, and Jeff Ward (“The Mentalist”) as Manson.
The story will primarily follows Kasabian when she first meets “the family” at the Spahn Ranch commune. She leaves them after the ‘Helter Skelter’ drug-fueled murder spree in August 1969. Kasabian turned herself in as a witness for the prosecution.
Leslie Libman (“NCIS”) directs a script written by Matthew Tabak and Stephen Kronish.
