Lifetime/Odyssey/Original True Movies

Everyone loves movies that are based on a true story, because it means you can say things like: "What a great movie... and it's based on a true story!" For some reason, we human beings like it when we know that things have happened in real life at some point - if said "true story" ended in a happy way, it helps us to inject a little hope into our lives; if it ended in a bad way, well... we've all got a morbid fascination with the sick and perverse, too, right?"
