LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- The Showtime premium network and the cable network Lifetime are simulcasting a movie for the first time.
Both networks will air the indie film "Speak," Monday about a high school freshman's attempt to reclaim her life after rape, Zap2it.com reported Saturday.
The film is based on an award-winning novel by Laurie Halse Anderson and star Kristen Stewart of "Panic Room," Halle Hirsch of "ER" and Eric Lively of "The L Word."
"Speak" was completed two years ago and well-received in several film festivals it was never released theatrically, Zap2it.com said.
After the movie, Lifetime and Showtime will air a public service announcement from the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, the nation's largest anti-sexual assault organization.
