Casey Anthony is getting the silver screen treatment with her own E! True Hollywood Story.
Her story will broadcast Wednesday night on the Entertainment network among other famous individuals who appear on the popular American documentary series.
Time magazine described Anthony’s six-week televised trial as the “social media trial of the century”. A Florida spokeswoman called Anthony "one of the most hated women in America".
Her True Hollywood Story includes interviews with a number of people close to the case that engrossed the nation into the story of 25-year-old Anthony who dominated U.S. headlines this year before she was acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter, Caylee who went missing in Orlando, Florida in July 2008.
In the immense media glare surrounding the case, Anthony was found not guilty of murder, aggravated child abuse and aggravated manslaughter of a child. However, the soon-to-be E! Hollywood Star was charged with four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
Throughout the trial, her defense lawyer Jose Baez said baby Caylee had drowned in the family swimming pool. That revelation contradicted Anthony’s accounts which she had provided to the police, which stated her belief that her daughter had been taken by nanny Zenaida Gonzalez.
The hour-long show will include exclusive interviews with journalist who reported on the case, ex-boyfriends, school friends and her defense lawyers. The show also includes a scene with Gonzalez, a woman with the same name as the fake nanny Anthony said had kidnapped her daughter.
Last week the former murder suspect gave video evidence in a defamation lawsuit brought by Gonzelez, disguised in a wig, baseball cap and sunglasses.
The show – "E! True Hollywood Story: Casey Anthony" airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET. The documentary series began in 1966. Typically, the show features courtroom footage, dramatic re-enactments and in-depth interviews.
