‘The Forgotten’ buying a baby leads to murder


A WOMAN’S PLAN TO BUY A BABY LEADS TO HER MURDER. “Mama Jane” – The Forgotten Network sets out to ID a 40-year-old woman found murdered in a local bar.

One of the primary suspects is a superstar basketball player (guest star Baron Davis, LA Clippers), who had an altercation with Jane Doe days before. As the team follows several leads, they learn that Jane Doe had paid to adopt a baby right before she died. But if that’s what led to her death, what happened to all the money?

Where is the baby? And who was willing to kill her for it, on “the forgotten,” TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Starring in “the forgotten” are Christian Slater as Alex Donovan, Michelle Borth as Candace Butler, Bob Stephenson as Walter Bailey, Anthony Carrigan as Tyler Davies and Rochelle Aytes as Grace Russell. Elisha Cuthbert is recurring as Maxine Denver.

Guest Cast: Gathering Marbet as Jane Doe/Wendy Scott, Baron Davis as Terrence King, Tania Raymonde as Sarah Poole, Michael Arden as James Poole.
