Kidnapped: The Hannah Anderson Story (8 p.m., Lifetime) – This Lifetime movie tells the harrowing true story of the 2013 abduction of Hannah Anderson. At 16 years old, Hannah was abducted when leaving cheerleading practice in a San Diego suburb and later that same day the bodies of Hannah’s mother and brother were found in the burned home of family friend James DiMaggio. A frantic multi-state manhunt for Hannah was launched. while for a week, the increasingly unstable DiMaggio kept Hannah prisoner as they made their way out of town. Without giving away more specifics about how things unfolded, let’s just say the ordeal left many questioning the relationship DiMaggio had with Hannah and how something like this could have happened. Was Hannah purely a victim of a deranged adult, or was there more to the story that led to these tragic events? “Gilmore Girls” fans may want to skip this one, since Scott Patterson (Luke) plays the creepy killer. Jessica Amlee plays Hannah.
