Anne Heche

With Anne Heche fighting for her life in a Los Angeles hospital, there had been conversations at Lifetime about what to do with her newest film, Girl in Room 13. On Friday, Heche had been driving a vehicle that crashed into a house, starting a fire that destroyed the home and severely injured Heche. While Heche had been alert and speaking with first responders, she fell into a coma shortly after the incident and has not yet regained unconsciousness. She remains in “extreme critical condition,” her rep says.

Per Variety, Lifetime presented a panel for the film at the Television Critics Association press conference on Thursday. The network’s executive VP and head of programming, Amy Winter, confirmed that the plan is still to release the movie as scheduled, even with Heche’s current struggles. Because the idea behind the film was to shine a light on a very serious issue, Winter says that it was very important to Heche along with the rest of the Girl in Room 13 that this movie would be released.

Director Elisabeth Rohm was also present at the panel and said that Girl in Room 13 will debut on Lifetime in September. Rohm also praises Heche’s performance in the movie.

After the accident, it had been reported that Anne Heche was on the mend and that she was in “stable” condition. A subsequent statement released by her rep clarified that Heche has been in a coma and has yet to regain consciousness. Her condition is grave and has not improved almost one full week after the accident. The statement reads:

Many have been sending well wishes to Heche hoping for her to get better. This includes Rosie O’Donnell, who recently expressed how badly she felt for joking about Heche in the past, now joining others in calling for a healthy recovery.
