Country superstar Naomi Judd (of The Judds) will be starring in Ruby, a new Lifetime movie as part of best-selling author V.C. Andrews’ four-part series special.

The movie follows Ruby Landry, who after being raised by her loving spiritual healer grandmother (Judd) in the Louisiana bayou, is ensnared in a world of dark family secrets and betrayal, upon discovering that she has another family living in New Orleans.

The film also stars Crystal Fox, Gil Bellows, Deborah Cox, twins Raechelle Banno & Karina Banno, Lauralee Bell, Sam Duke and Ty Wood.

Ruby centers on Ruby Landry (Raechelle Banno), born in the Louisiana bayou and watched over by her loving Grandmère Catherine (Judd). Ruby is filled with hope as love blooms with her high school sweetheart Paul Tate (Duke), but lingering thoughts of her mysterious father and her mother’s death often creep into Ruby’s mind. As dark family secrets begin to reveal themselves when Paul’s parents forbid him from seeing Ruby, Ruby is further devastated when her beloved Grandmère passes away. Forced to flee to New Orleans from the bayou, Ruby searches for her estranged father (Bellows), one of the richest men in the city, as she clings to her memories of Paul and their forbidden love.

Ruby premieres on Saturday, March 20, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The four-movie V.C. event will also air consecutively over two weekends starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday, March 20 and Sunday, March 21, and then again at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday, March 27 and Sunday, March 28.
