The movie, slated to debut in 2020, will dramatize the horrific murders of the young mother, 3-year-old Celeste and 4-year-old Bella by their husband and father, Christopher Watts. The creators of the television movie somehow hope to piece together Watts’s “mysterious motives,” which the local, state and federal authorities who worked the case for months were not able to definitely pin down.

Actors will portray the couple and Colorado Bureau of Investigation Agent Tammy Lee, according to a news release Wednesday from A+E Networks.

The announcement comes shortly after the year anniversary of the killings, which exacted a deep psychological toll on those who investigated. Shanann’s parents are still reeling from the grief of losing their daughter and granddaughters. Her father traveled to Colorado earlier this month and asked online harassers to leave the family alone.
