The Crystal Maze

The Wrong Housesitter

8 p.m. ET on LMN – Premiere

Dan has barely moved into the home of his dreams when his editor has to send him on an out-of-town assignment. Luckily for him, he’s just become friends with Kristin, who strikes Dan as the sort of stable, responsible person who would make a perfect house sitter. Dan is terribly, terribly wrong about that, and while he’s away, Kristin really makes herself at home in his house, with no plans for ever leaving it — or Dan. Vivica A. Fox, Jason-Shane Scott and Anna Dobbins star.
