Ali Liebert has over 85 acting credits on her impressive resume, including many movies on Lifetime and Hallmark Channel, but this weekend we will see something new from her with the premiere on Lifetime Movie Network of Amish Abduction, which marks her network directorial debut. “Truthfully, I've been thinking about how to start my directing career for years now,” she told MediaVillage in an exclusive interview. “I've been shadowing other directors on set for a while, but with my acting schedule being what it is, it just never seemed to work out. Last year brought the perfect storm of opportunity, and things lined up, and I was so excited to start. Amish Abduction has a very special place in my heart and always will because [as a director] it is my first [movie of the week].
