On March 13, a brand new miniseries starring Eric McCormack (“Will and Grace”) will air on the Lifetime network, called “Who is Clark Rockefeller?”. Costarring Sherry Stringfield as his wife and Harvard MBA millionaire financial consultant, Sandra Boss, the movie traces the story of Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, who assumed the alias Clark Rockefeller, and managed to con his way into various careers and relationships before marrying Boss, whom with he had a child, whom he later abducted.
The real life tale finds its roots deep in Boston, as it was on July 27, 2008 that Massachusetts State Police issued an Amber Alert for Reigh Storrow Mills Rockefeller, their daughter, and a warrant for Gerhartsreiter’s arrest. After an exhaustive, week-long search around the Boston metro area, including Logan Airport, and parts of New York City, he was later arrested in Baltimore, Maryland. Reigh was safely recovered, and Gerhartsreiter was brought up on charges, and the full extent of Gerhartsreiter’s lifetime of lies was realized throughout his prosecution.
The movie’s premiere is at 9pm on March 13th, and will have subsequent airings on the Lifetime network. It costars Emily Alyn Lind as Reigh and Regina Taylor. Watch this 15 second preview to see all the faces of Clark Rockefeller:
