LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Dean Cain will play accused killer Scott Peterson in USA Network's television movie, "The Perfect Husband."

Also cast are Dee Wallace-Stone, Tim Quill and David Denman, the Hollywood Reporter said, with Emmy-winning director Roger Young ("Murder in Mississippi") as director. Dave Erickson is doing the script.

"The Perfect Husband" will tell Peterson's story, beginning with the mysterious disappearance of his eight-months-pregnant wife, Laci, on Christmas Eve last year. It will chronicle the extensive search for the missing Modesto, Calif., woman and the grim discovery of the remains of Laci and her baby along the San Francisco Bay, ending with the arrest of a disguised Scott Peterson in April as he traveled to Mexico.

Peterson, charged with slaying his pregnant wife and their unborn son, is back in the news this week as a hearing opened to determine whether he must stand trial for murder.
