This weekend on TV: Lifetime obsesses over
It's not quite all-Warren Jeffs, all the time Saturday on Lifetime. It just seems that way.
First up, it's the premiere of the TV movie Outlaw Prophet: Warren Jeffs (6 p.m., Lifetime). Which is pretty ridiculous from the get-go, what with the very handsome Tony Goldwyn ("Scandal") playing the not-so-handsome Jeffs.
That's followed by the documentary Warren Jeffs: Beyond the Headlines (8 p.m., Lifetime). All this might be news to anyone who doesn't live in Utah; not so much to anyone who does.
Oh, and "Outlaw Prophet" repeats at 10:02 p.m. and 12:02 a.m.
