Lifetime has greenlit the new original movie House of Chains, inspired by the disturbing true story of a troubled married couple who imprisoned their six children within their home due to an intense religious ideology.

The film also stars Natalie Jane, Carina London Battrick, Callum McAllister, Aias Dalman, Madeleine Kane, Isla Grimes, Owen Irvin McCullough, Hudson Wurster, Joey Carson and Grayson Taylor-Day as the children at various ages and will debut this fall on Lifetime.

House of Chains tells the story of a seemingly normal, suburban family whose dark secrets remained hidden for years. Following their own set of strict religious beliefs, parents Laura and Tye keep their children separated from the outside world. As the children grow older and begin to ask questions Laura and Tye’s authoritarian ways grow stronger leading them down a path of child abuse, neglect and imprisonment. In order to keep their younger siblings safe and to free themselves from the shackles their parents have created the older children band together and risk a harrowing escape to alert authorities and save their family.

House of Chains is Executive Produced by Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer, and Fernando Szew for MarVista Entertainment (MVE) in association with executive producers Arnie Zipursky and Bonnie Zipursky at Neshama Entertainment.
