Lifetime has announced that it will on March 4 the legal drama film, ‘Custody,’ executive produced by Viola Davis and starring Davis, Hayden Panettiere, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Raul Esparza, Dan Fogler, Ellen Burstyn, Nicholas L. Ashe and Tony Shaloub.

Written and directed by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner James Lapine, the film had its world premiere at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

Ashe) just off to college.
