Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts is beginning her new venture on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
Roberts stepped behind the camera as a producer to help bring the ripped-from-the-headlines story of Kamiyah Mobley’s kidnapping to the screen. This fictionalized account stars Nicey Nash as Gloria Williams, who stole newborn Mobley from the hospital on July 10, 1998.
Williams stole the hours-old baby from the hospital when she was 33 and disguised as a nurse. Williams had suffered a miscarriage a week prior, and prosecutors believe that was her motive for stealing Mobley. Mobley found out in 2017 that Williams was not her biological mother. Mobley is played by Rayven Ferrell.
