People Editorial Guidelines Published on August 24, 2014 02:45 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: Courtesy A+E Networks Lifetime released its trailer for the network’s upcoming biopic The Brittany Murphy Story Friday – and it’s dramatic. Flashes of Murphy (played by Grey’s Anatomy‘s Amanda Fuller) struggling with pill bottles and harassed by paparazzi and reporters in her face pass quickly in the footage, while words like “paranoid” and “targeted” flicker between scenes – all set to a haunting, slow-burning cover of Haddaway’s “What Is Love” by Canadian import Kiesza. The clip ends with a distraught Simon Monjack (Murphy’s husband, played by Eric Petersen) telling reporters, “You all killed her!” The late actress, best remembered for her turn in Clueless, died from cardiac arrest at the age of 32 in 2009. Five months after her death, Monjack was found dead in his apartment. The Brittany Murphy Story airs Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime. Want more stories like this?
