Drew Peterson legal team responds to reports that actor Rob Lowe will play Peterson in ‘Lifetime’ movie

Urges public to remember that movies are not 'real life.'
(PR NewsChannel) / June 15, 2011 / CHICAGO 
Drew Peterson’s criminal defense team today responded to reports that actor Rob Lowe has been cast to play Peterson in an upcoming made-for-TV movie to air on Lifetime cable.

Peterson is accused of killing his third wife and is implicated in the disappearance of his fourth.  He has vehemently denied any wrongdoing and is currently in jail awaiting trial.

“People need to remember that movies are not real life.   This is a made-for-TV movie:  It’s a story and entertainment.  It’s not fact,” says Joel A. Brodsky, Peterson’s lead criminal defense attorney.  “All that matters is Drew Peterson’s right to a fair trial and the only opinion that matters is the jury’s.”

“Every story must have an ending.  We hope and caution any company producing a movie about the Drew Peterson case to wait for the only ending that matters, the jury verdict, before broadcasting the Drew Peterson story.”

Authorities arrested Peterson, a former decorated Bolingbrook (Ill.) police sergeant in 2009.  His third wife, Kathleen Savio, died in 2004 and at the time was ruled an accidental drowning.

Peterson who has not been convicted of any crime is being held on $20-million bond.

STATEMENT FROM DREW PETERSON’S LEGAL TEAM:

“People need to remember that movies are not real life.   This is a made-for-TV movie:  It’s a story and entertainment.  It’s not fact.  All that matters is Drew Peterson’s right to a fair trial and the only opinion that matters is the jury’s.  Every story must have an ending.  We hope and caution any company producing a movie about the Drew Peterson case to wait for the only ending that matters, the jury verdict, before broadcasting the Drew Peterson story.”
