Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Although Tom Weston (Gerald McRaney) has nurtured a lifelong fantasy about having great power and influence over people, the bitter truth is that Tom has never become anything more than a Michigan truck driver. Nonetheless, Tom persists in his efforts to live out his ambitious dreams, leading him to betray his wife Nancy (Peggy Lipton) and inaugurate a torrid affair with impressionable Bobbi Gilbert (Jodie Bissett), a woman half his age. Entering into a bigamous marriage with Bobbi, Tom feels he has no other choice but to murder Nancy--in as savage a manner as possible. Inspired by a true story, the made-for-TV Deadly Vows was first seen over the Fox network on September 13, 1994.
