She researched and wrote the scripts for Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer and Terror in The Woods for the Lifetime network describing the events surrounding two real-life tragic murder cases. In fact, Amber is adding to her work for the Lifetime Network once again with A Murder To Remember adapting crime author Ann Rule’s book Empty Promises for the screen. Fans in the USA will have the opportunity to see its premiere on Sunday 2 of August 8PM ET on Lifetime.
In 2019 she got the chance to pen two fictional murder mysteries for the small screen first she wrote the teleplay for Morning Show Mysteries: A Murder In Mind. Then quickly followed this up by writing Morning Show Mysteries: Death By Design the second time Amber has written for this popular series both of which aired on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel in the USA.
The Morning Show Mysteries series centers on Billie Blessings (Holly Robinson Peete) a successful restaurateur who also hosts the cooking segment on Wake Up West Coast, a popular TV show. Billie was once suspected of murder but after clearing her name with the help of Detective Ian Jackson (Rick Fox) the two remained friends and are growing even closer as they find themselves at the heart of another mystery.
In Death By Design Billie’s best friend Marian is hired to redecorate the Wake Up West Coast studio. The decorating comes to a sudden and shocking halt when Marian’s twin sister is found murdered. So naturally Billie and Ian are hot on the trail of the killer.
The exciting news for Amber fans in the UK is that Morning Show Mysteries: Death By Design will have it’s UK Premiere on Friday, 7 August at 2:15 PM on Channel 5 and at 3:15 PM on Channel 5+1. Coming hot on heels of Morning Show Mysteries: A Murder in Mind which had it’s UK premiere just a few days ago.
There are different channel numbers depending on which digital TV platform you use I would check on-screen guides and any local channel listings for the correct channel numbers. Unfortunately, A Murder in Mind was not available on demand via the Channel 5 website and I don't anticipate that Death By Design will be either but I will check and post an update if it is available.
Just as with A Murder in Mind there isn't much information on the Channel 5 website about Death By Design click here to view the listing. I've also embedded the US trailer below so you can get a taste of the movie.
