ALTTalk about deep cable worlds colliding. On Thursday, Lifetime Movie Network gave the green light to Nancy Grace's Eleventh Victim — an original movie based on the former prosecutor's debut novel The Eleventh Victim. 90210 — and Jennie Garth has signed on to star.

This bit of guilty pleasure TV will center on Hailey Dean (Garth), an Atlanta Assistant DA whose fiance is murdered. After managing to convict Clint Burrell Cruise for the murder of 11 prostitutes, Dean leaves the DA's office and starts a new career as a therapist in Manhattan. However, her past comes back to haunt her when Cruise is released from prison on appeal and starts murdering her patients.

Grace is the Executive Producer of the movie with Ted Bauman and Josh Sabarra. There's no word yet on how she'll work in the Natalee Holloway and Casey Anthony references.
