Sheedy stars in film based on Court TV documentary
Ally Sheedy will star in "The Interrogation of Michael Crowe," to air Dec. 4.
The film is based on Court TV's documentary of the same name, which won an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award. It probed the interrogation and coerced confession of a 14-year-old California boy.
Sheedy will star as Cheryl Crowe, Michael's mother, who fought tirelessly to prove her son's innocence. The film tells the story of the Crowe family, whose son was forced to endure an excruciating police interrogation into the 1998 slaying of his 12-year-old sister, Stephanie.
