Lifetime's formula for "original" films

Many Lifetime Original movies feature a woman as protagonist. Many of these made for television movies were part of a series that labeled them A Moment of Truth Movie. These movies can sometimes be alarmist, formulaic tales, such as Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life. Often the movies are fun, adventurous, thoughtful, creative, caring about people, loving, teasing, sensitive about subtleties and engaged in how to alleviate suffering in the world by portraying real events that have happened to real people, often still living such as Martha Stewart.[citation needed] The protagonist or main character is the central figure of a story. ...

Good Girl
this is the innocent girl and usually the protagonist of the story who falls victim to one of the following situations: kidnapped, murdered, corrupted by drugs and/or alcohol, gets raped, becomes a gambler, becomes a prostitute, is being stalked, gets pregnant, or a variation of these themes.
Bad Molly
the "friend" who corrupts the Good Girl and urges her to have sex, drink, stay out late, lie, etc. The Bad Molly is sneaky, manipulative and is usually at odds with the Good Girl's Mom.
Good Molly
the friend that tries to help the Good Girl but is ignored in the beginning and middle of the movie. (see Good Boy)
Bad Boy
the cool older guy in high school who has sex with the good girl, rapes her, gets her pregnant, stalks her, threatens her or a variation of the above. But in the beginning he seems really nice, she really likes him and he always cons the parents. This type of character is meant to caution female viewers on the less than honorable intentions of many high school boys.
Good Boy
the friend or lame dude who tries to help the Good Girl but is ignored until the end of the movie when the heroine realizes he is the one for her. In some extremely clever Lifetime movies the Good Boy is secretly the Mean Man (see below), only to be revealed as such after the heroine's epiphany and right before the end of the story.
Mean Man
this character is a completely scary guy in appearance and behavior. He plays the part of the kidnapper, stalker or murderer, usually in a plaid or flanel shirt.
Weak Mom
the mother who can't control her kids because she is naive or has her own issues going on.
Dad
Yells a lot, tries to control his daughter's antics. But sometimes he can be involved in something shady himself.
Mistress
Has an affair with husband and causes drama at home. Aka "Home Wrecker".
Religious Mom
Preaches religion but does not realize her daughter breaks most of the 10 commandments on a weekly basis. This role was played perfectly in She's Too Young.
Younger Sister
she looks up to the Good Girl but is slowly becoming a Bad Molly because of the drama she is influenced by.
