Per Lifetime, the film follows four friends — Karla Dodds (Denise Richards), Rebel Carron-Whitman (NeNe Leakes), Joli Symons (Kym Johnson Herjavec) and Sharell Bouvier (Melyssa Ford), who jet off on a girls trip to a spa retreat away from their busy lives. But the weekend getaway takes a horrifying turn, when the plane the women are on crashes in the wilderness.

With no knowledge of basic survival, the four housewives are forced to use their wits if they want to get home safely. Making matters worse, the women realize they’re not alone and are being hunted.

The movie is produced by Brain Power Studio in association with Nicely Entertainment for Lifetime. Beth Stevenson, Nancy Yeaman, Stan Hum and Vanessa Shapiro executive produce. Paula Tiberius wrote the script and Marco Deufemia directs.

Hunting Housewives is scheduled to premiere Saturday, March 9 at 8p/7c on Lifetime.
