'The Killer in My Backyard' Full Cast List: Meet the stars of Lifetime thriller
'The Killer in My Backyard' stars Kristos Andrews, Brittany Underwood and Jacob Taylor in key roles
Lifetime's thrillers are crisp and entertaining. Over the years, it has produced countless films under the genre and they have all worked for them. Vivica A Fox's 'The Wrong' series was an instant hit and so was the network's 2021 summer slate that featured as many as six thriller films.
Titled 'Summer of Secrets', the theme takes on true stories of deception and betrayal. 'A Party Gone Wrong', 'The Secret She Keeps', 'Soccer Mom Madam', 'Gone Mom', 'Left for Dead: The Ashley Reeves Story' and 'Secrets of a Gold Digger Killer' are the titles released over two months. Even though Lifetime's latest 'The Killer in My Backyard' is not a part of the roster, but it deals with a similar subject matter. Let's find out more about it!
She is no stranger to Lifetime thrillers. 'The Killer in My Backyard' only gives her an opportunity to polish her acting skills further. Recently, she starred in 'Fatal Fiance' where the plot may have been different but the tropes were similar. The narrative was laced with fear and mystery.
Born on July 6, 1988, in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, Underwood has not only actively pursued acting but also music. Celebs Wiki Page reported: "On December 18, 2012, Underwood released a single called 'Flow'" and followed it up with 'Pull Me in Again', 'Black Widow', 'California Wild', 'Love Me Now or Let Me Go', 'Shine' and 'High Heels High Hopes' and 'Not Yet'.
She is known for her roles in 'The Bay' (Riley Henderson), 'Youthful Daze' (Sheila Edmundson), 'Hollywood Heights' (Loren Tate), and daytime soap opera 'One Life to Live' (Langston Wilde), among others.
At just 30, Andrews has achieved what most can only hope to. According to a Digital Journal report, he holds the record as the youngest to win 10 Emmy Awards. "I am extremely grateful," he told the outlet last year and added: "I never take a win for granted simply because it’s happened before, and it feels like the first time all over again, especially since the work continues to become a whole new ball game each year to continually rise to with sincere passion. I am thankful to have great material to work with and to be surrounded by great people."
Born on August 25, 1990, Andrews holds dual citizenship. He was raised in both the US and the UK. He is best known for his role in the crime-romance series 'The Bay'. However, over the years he has featured in interesting films and TV shows such as '2nd Chance for Christmas' alongside Fox and Tara Reid, a supporting role in the Netflix football drama 'The Last Whistle', and the lead role in the limited mini-series 'A Place Called Hollywood' on Tubi.
He appears in a supporting role in 'The Killer in My Backyard'. Taylor plays Eric, Allyson's (Underwood) fiance, who is equally gung-ho about renting out space to their 'perfect' new guest not knowing that it will land them in trouble someday. Andrews' Josh is simple and minds his own business but he has nefarious plans up his sleeves, which will unfurl with time. Unfortunately, by then it might be too late for the unwitting couple to save themselves from the 'killer'. In 2021, Taylor has had two releases: 'A Criminal Affair' and 'Fatal Memory'.
'The Killer in My Backyard' will premiere on June 17 at 8/7c on Lifetime Movies Network. Those who are not based in the US can use a VPN. Alternatively, one may watch it on Hulu, Fubo TV and Sling TV.
