You Can't Take My Daughter is telecast Sunday, 6 p.m. on Lifetime. Lifetime continues the 30th-anniversary celebrations of Lifetime Original Movies with a carefully curated Independence Day Marathon. Starting July 4 at 11 a.m. a slew of favorites begin airing and culminates Sunday with the premier of Driven to the Edge at 8 p.m. The marathon will also revisit You Can't Take My Daughter, starring Lyndsy Fonseca (pictured above) and Kirstie Alley, which originally premiered in February of this year. Inspired by the real-life story of lawyer Analyn Megison, the film stands as an important piece of television as Megison's ordeal would eventually change archaic State laws regarding rape victims and parental rights after an attack results in a pregnancy. "I'm so thrilled that this is a part of the marathon," said Fonseca in an exclusive MediaVillage interview. "We really poured our hearts and souls into this and worked so hard on making something we could all be proud of. For it to be chosen as a part of the marathon makes me happy for everyone involved."
