When you wake up in the morning, there’s no possible alarm that can give out the kind of warning that is necessary to hear this story.

Lifetime is gearing up for an upcoming original movie about the short and tragic rise to fame for R&B star Aaliyah, and they didn’t have to look very far to find their star.

Lifetime has unveiled a pretty intriguing sneak preview of their futuristic new series The Lottery.
