Lifetime delivered a ratings double knockout thanks to TD Jakes Enterprises, which acted as the producer for two movies for the women’s network:  ‘Lust’ (starring Keri Hilson) and ‘Envy’ (starring Serayah).

Both productions served as film adaptations of Victoria Christopher Murray books of the same names and launched back-to-back weekend premieres as part of the channel’s ‘Seven Deadly Sins Story’ franchise.
