In the TV movie Backstabbed, Shelby Wilson is a young housewife looking for a new career. She feels fortunate at first when she becomes the protégé of real estate agent Paulette Bolton. But when Shelby discovers how far Paulette will go to close a deal, she becomes scared for her own life — and there’s good reason.
Shelby is portrayed by Brittany Underwood. The 28-year-old New Jersey native is known for her roles on The Bay (Riley Henderson), Youthful Daze (Sheila Edmundson), Hollywood Heights (Loren Tate), and One Life to Live (Langston Wilde), among others. Underwood is also recognized for her roles in the films Game Change (as Sarah Palin’s daughter Willow) and Kenneth Lonergan’s legendary Margaret (Leslie). Backstabbed will premiere on Lifetime on Saturday, August 3 at 8pm.
