BABY SELLERS: ICE to be featured in Lifetime made-for-TV movie

Baby sellers

Mystery, intrigue and suspense are just some of the things that viewers can expect from Lifetime’s new two-hour made-for-TV original movie “Baby Sellers,” set to air Aug. 17, at 8 p.m. EST. In the movie, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent Nic Morrison, played by Jennifer Finnigan, stumbles upon an international human trafficking ring, which specializes in selling infants. According to Lifetime, Baby Sellers exposes “the dark international crime enterprise of infant trafficking…” Carla Huxley, played by Kirstie Alley, is “a well-respected, influential owner of a major U.S.-based adoption agency… Morrison… believes Huxley is fueling a global business that stops at nothing to find the right child for the right owner – at the right price – and goes undercover to bring her sordid operation down.”

ICE has stated that it is serious about ending human trafficking, and considers it as one of the most heinous crimes that it investigates. In its worst manifestation, human trafficking is akin to modern-day slavery. Victims can find themselves forced into prostitution, involuntary labor and other forms of servitude. Much like the movie Baby Sellers, in certain cases, the victims are mere children. They find themselves surrounded by an unfamiliar culture and language without identification documents, fearing for their lives and the lives of their families. ICE relies on tips from the public to dismantle these organizations. ICE encourages the public to look and listen for suspicious activity. Trafficking victims are often hidden in plain sight, voiceless and scared.

Baby Sellers is Executive Producer Robert Halmi Sr.’s follow-up to his 2005 Lifetime movie “Human Trafficking,” which starred Mira Sorvino, Donald Sutherland and Robert Carlyle, and also featured ICE. Baby Sellers was produced by Reunion Pictures; executive produced by Halmi, Sr. and Matthew O’Connor; directed by Nick Willing; and the screenplay was written by Suzette Couture and William Gray.
