Lifetime’s newest drama is sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats: My Best Friend’s Secret Life. The plot revolves around the girl’s naive trust in her new friend. Originally titled Friends in Deadly Places, the Lifetime film’s title was modified to My Escort Best Friend before finally settling on its current name. Maggie, our protagonist, falls victim to a trafficking network after trusting her new best friend, Laurel. Her work with the latter sends her to upscale nightclubs where she may network with potential customers. Maggie learns the truth after it’s already too late. Maggie is excited when she meets stylish, edgy Laurel. Maggie, however, recognizes that she is being prepared for something far worse than a best friend, and it is up to her mother, Kate, to save her.
