Escaping My Ex: Filming Locations and Cast Details

With the advent of social media making it easier to follow others’ lives, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that stalking has become the new smoking. The troubling activity has become so commonplace that Netflix’s ‘You’ finds itself to be cashing in on the relatability of its stalker protagonist in order to rake in high levels of viewership. Either way, that is not the only production about a stalking character. Lifetime’s ‘Obsession: Escaping My Ex’ is another thrilling example.

Lifetime proves to be the aptest network to present such a story. After all, the two main kinds of television movies that the channel showcases are cheesy romcoms and disturbingly dark thrillers. ‘Obsession: Escaping My Ex’ functions as a sequel to ‘Obsession: Stalked My Lover,’ another Lifetime TV film.

‘Obsession: Escaping My Ex’ picks up the story of Madison and Blake Collins. It turns out that Collins manages to escape a prison van, thereby being free to haunt Madison, the woman he loved and betrayed once again. His next plan is even more harrowing than what he did previously. He kidnaps Madison! Madison desperately attempts to free herself from Collins.
