The three will co-star in a Lifetime production “Abducted: The Carlina White Story,” a film based on the true life story of Carlina White, a girl who solved her own kidnapping mystery and reunites with her birth parents 23 years later.
A woman who pretended to be a nurse abducted White from a Harlem hospital in 1987. She then raised her 45 miles outside of Manhattan in Bridgeport, Conn. under the name Nejdra ‘Netty’ Nance.

Her story made national headlines in January 2011 when she finally reunited with her birth mom, played by Shepherd.
