The TV movie reportedly chronicles the true life story of the late Playboy model and actress, who grew up in a small Texas town before rising to fame and ultimately passing away from an apparent overdose of prescription drugs.

Bruckner, perhaps best known for her roles on 24 and Private Practice, will also star opposite Billy Bob Thornton and Eva Longoria in The Baytown Outlaws.
