In the TV movie Mommy’s Little Girl, a strange little girl named Sadie (Emma Hentschel) is raised by her controlling grandparents in a remote part of the country. When Sadie is reunited with her mother Theresa, sadistic Sadie – who is reminiscent of the heartless, pigtailed Rhoda in The Bad Seed – is “determined not to let anyone stand in the way of her newfound happiness.” That includes her grandparents.
Theresa is portrayed by Fiona Gubelmann. The LA native is best known for her roles on the TV shows Telenovela (Kelly), Wilfred (Jenna Mueller), and Parenthood (Sandy), among others. Gubelmann is also recognized for her roles in the films Blades of Glory (Woodland Fairie) and Employee of the Month (Amber). Mommy’s Little Girl premieres on Lifetime on March 19 at 8pm. It will air again on March 20 at 12am and 5pm.
