They're arguing over whether Jodi Arias will live or die on HLN.

But the Arias saga will play out next month. Lifetime on Thursday announced that "Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret" will debut at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 22.

Lifetime says the movie "dissects Jodi Arias' true crime story from gripping trial to murder conviction."


Arias was convicted last week of first-degree murder in the slaying of former boyfriend Travis Alexander. The trial, through heavy coverage on HLN, became one of the nation's most-examined cases in recent months.

Tania Raymonde ("Lost") will play Arias, and Jesse Lee Soffer portrays Alexander. The film is directed by Jace Alexander ("Law & Order," "Rescue Me") and written by Richard Blaney and Gregory Small ("Okavango: The Wild Frontier").

Lifetime will present the documentary "Jodi Arias: Beyond the Headlines" at 10 p.m. Wednesday. The hour program features Alexander's sister, brother and close friends, police detective Esteban Flores and criminologist Lawrence Kobilinsky. The program will repeat at 10 p.m. June 22 after the movie's premiere. CBS Eye Productions produced the documentary, which also draws on interviews with Arias.

Lifetime turned the Casey Anthony saga into a movie that debuted in January. "Prosecuting Casey Anthony" was based on prosecutor Jeff Ashton's book, "Imperfect Justice."
