Casey Anthony’s murder trial could be turned into TV movie

The project is based on prosecutor Jeff Ashton’s book Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

According to reports, Fox TV Studios has purchased the rights to develop Ashton’s memoir for Lifetime.

The script will be written by Emmy winner Alison Cross of Roe vs. Wade, who will co-produce the film with Jean Abounader, a veteran of TV movies, and Michelle Manning of 16 Candles.

Jeff Ashton’s 336-page book arrived on shelves Tuesday.

The memoir focuses on the three-year trial and preparation that the prosecution went through in the trail of Casey Anthony. The prosecution asked for the death penalty in the case, but Anthony was eventually acquitted of the murder charge.

In the book, Ashton comments on Anthony’s defense lawyers and jurors, calling lead defense attorney Jose Baez “smarmy” and criticizing the jurors.

“There is an unearned air of arrogance about the man that is incredibly frustrating to witness,” Ashton writes about Baez. “The word I used in describing Jose is smarmy: somebody who is slick, underhanded and doesn’t shoot straight.”

During an interview on NBC’s Today, Ashton advised people to forget about Anthony.

“My advice to people who are angry about this is to ignore Casey, and I hope that’s what they do,” he said. “I hope that someday, and I know this probably won’t happen, the name Casey Anthony will invoke a ‘Who’s that?’ ”
