Meanwhile, Lance’s ruse against his father, Webb, turns out to be a success. The Jones now have all the cards they need to defeat their enemies and keep prospering in wealth and reputation. Given the thrilling story of the movie, many are curious to know if it is inspired by real-life events. The movie’s visual side has also captured several hearts and has the fans asking about where it was shit. Well, here’s all that we know about the Lifetime movie.
Is The Wrong Inside Man a True Story?
No, ‘The Wrong Inside Man’ is not based on a true story. The movie is a part of the beloved ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses‘ franchise and continues the thrilling family drama. David DeCoteau directed the film’s prequels, and his presence helped maintain the seamlessness of the movie series, keeping the audience equally engaged.
The franchise’s name might ring bells in some minds due to its similarity with the title of the famous reality show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’ Interestingly, their name is not the only common factor between the two series; it is easy to see the parallels between the wealthy Jones family and the affluent Kardashians. Both families are led by smart and successful matriarchs, Robin Jones and Kris Jenner. While Robin’s daughters lead regular lives, the Kardashian and Jenner sisters are reality series stars. Obviously, the reality series is nowhere as cutthroat and thrilling as the movie franchise, yet the similarities are certainly intriguing.
‘The Wrong Inside Man’ may not be inspired by reality, but the theme of family-based drama gives it a relatable and realistic vibe. Shows like ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Medici,’ and ‘Downton Abbey‘ have garnered much love for the same reasons. ‘Downton Abbey’ in particular, focuses on the fictional Crawley family in Britain in the early 20th century. The historical show is full of drama, money, plot twists, and unexpected deaths and has a huge fan following.
