Drink, Slay, Love’s novel is riveting, and Lifetime’s movie should make a great accompaniment. Steeped in comedy, fantasy, and romance, Drink, Slay, Love is another teen flick Lifetime premieres this weekend. This one is directed by Vanessa Parise. It’s scripted by Eirene Donohue and based on the novel by Sarah Beth Durst. Drink, Slay, Love, stars Cierra Ramirez, Zack Peladeau, Gregg Sulkin, McKaley Miller, and Angelique Rivera.
Lifetime’s movie, Drink, Slay, Love is about Pearl, a 16-year-old teen vampire who’s allergic to the sun. Pearl always has evil on her mind, but this time her world of fright dissipates when she is assaulted and left in the sun.
To Pearl’s surprise, she survives the episode in the sun, which gives her a new outlook on life. However, Pearl’s parents have something else in mind. With Pearl’s new ability to tolerate sunlight, it’s the perfect chance for them to send her to a brand new high school where she can target new victims for the “King.”
In Drink, Slay, Love’s next scene, Pearl acclimates to her new surroundings at school. She meets new friends and a hot new guy. Meanwhile, pressure mounts at home as her parents push her to fulfill her family obligations.
Looks like Pearl has had a change of heart and is now unwilling to betray her new classmates. Turning inward, she calculates her next move. It’s a choice between family and a promising new romance.
Lifetime teases the Drink, Slay, Love movie this way.
“Pearl is a typical sixteen-year-old vampire, until everything changes. Pearl’s powerful family soon finds a way to take advantage of her new ability, but Pearl is starting to grow a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends? What’s a sun-loving vamp to do?”
Drink, Slay, Love is produced by Sepia Films and worldwide distribution is provided by A&E Television Networks and Just Singer Entertainment. The executive producers are Bella Thorne and Sheri Singer.
