Roark Critchlow (ex-Mike Horton, “Days of our Lives”), Josie Bissett (‘Melrose Place’) and Zoe De GrandMaison (“Orphan Black”) star in “Pregnant at 17,” a Lifetime thriller premiering Saturday, February 20. The movie tells a tale of infidelity with a twist.
Bissett plays Sonia, a veterinarian, married to Jeff (Critchlow), a successful, but self-involved businessman. She desperately wants to have a child, but after suffering a miscarriage finds out she will never be able to conceive. Hoping to find comfort from her husband, she instead discovers he is having an affair — with 17-year-old Chelsea (De Grand Maison), who’s pregnant.
Using a fictitious name, Sonia tracks down her husband’s mistress and develops a friendship with Chelsea. To Sonia’s surprise, she actually likes the young woman she expected to hate. So she files for divorce, so Jeff can marry Chelsea.
When Chelsea informs Sonia that Jeff ended their affair and wants nothing to do with her or the baby, Sonia becomes her ally. Things take a twisted turn when a sinister figure from Chelsea’s past comes back into her life, and the two women have to bond together to fight for their lives and the life of the baby.
Pregnant at 17 airs Saturday, February 20 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT on Lifetime.
