The eerie new prequel Flowers in the Attic: The Origin premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, July 9, at 8:00 p.m. ET. It is based on the gothic Dollanganger books by V.C. Andrews, including the cult-classic best-seller, Flowers in the Attic. The show specifically focuses on one of the later books, Garden of Shadows. This limited series chronicles two generations earlier and what made the Dollanganers’ grandmother the cold, cruel woman in Flowers in the Attic. Here, we find Olivia Winfield (Jemima Rooper), a young woman, plain but kind, who finds herself mistress of Foxworth Hall after a whirlwind romance and marriage to Malcolm Foxworth (Max Irons). However, life in this family is less a fairy tale and more a nightmare than she could have ever realized.
Now part of one of the wealthiest families in the country, Olivia finds herself witness to the dark desires and secrets in rooms of Foxworth Hall, discovering her husband and his father eerily obsessed with youth and beauty, particularly within the girls in their own family. Is there any way for Olivia to save her children, or herself, from the dark web of the Foxworths? The four-episode mini-series spans several decades and co-stars Kelsey Grammer as the patriarch Garland Foxworth, as well as Harry Hamlin, Kate Mulgrew, Paul Wesley, T’Shan Williams, Hannah Dodd, and Alana Boden.
