The Jodi Arias saga will once again unfold on the small screen thanks to a made-for-TV movie, courtesy of Lifetime.

The network recently announced “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” will debut in June, starring “Lost” actress Tania Raymonde as Arias and Jesse Lee Soffer, of “The Mob Doctor,” as doomed boyfriend Travis Alexander.

Prosecutor Juan Martinez will be played by “Ugly Betty” actor Tony Plana and David Zayas, of “Dexter,” has signed on to play detective Esteban Flores.

On May 8, a jury found 32-year-old Arias guilty of murder in Alexander’s June 4, 2008 death at his suburban Phoenix home. Arias stabbed and slashed him nearly 30 times, slit his throat from ear to ear and shot him in the forehead in what prosecutors described as a jealous rage caused by Alexander’s plan to end their affair and head to Mexico with another woman.

In a press release, Lifetime described Arias’ drawn out trial as “grand theater,” that “[dominated] the cable news networks as she testified in her own defense and offered explicit insight into the sex, lies and obsession that led up to Alexander’s murder.”

The network has produced similar movies about Amanda Knox and Philip Markoff , “The Craigslist Killer.”

“Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” will premiere on Lifetime on June 22 and 8 p.m. ET.
