Sluti portrayal airs Sunday

EARNEY — The made-for-TV movie about the 2001 kidnapping of Anne Sluti of Kearney will air at 7 p.m. Sunday.

The 88-minute movie based on the true story of Sluti’s April 6, 2001, kidnapping will appear on the Lifetime Movie Network. The channel is available only to Charter digital customers on Channel 302.

Viewers with basic and expanded basic cable do not receive LMN because that channel is part of the digital view package.

The show will air on DirecTV Channel 253 and Dish Network Channel 109, depending on individual customer plans.

“Taken in Broad Daylight” focuses on Sluti’s six-day survival: how she outsmarted her captor, Tony Zappa of St. Paul, Minn.; how she left evidence for law enforcement along the way; and how she kept her wits to ultimately help negotiate her safe release.

A preview of the show can be seen by going to and typing “Taken in Broad Daylight” in the search engine.

Filming began Sept. 22 near Winnipeg, Manitoba, and wrapped Oct. 16.

Of the more than 100 law enforcement officers between Kearney and Montana involved in Sluti’s case, there are only two fictional characters portrayed in the drama: FBI Detective Reynolds and a detective and hostage negotiator, Mike Timbrook, who is played by actor LeVar Burton.

Sluti, now 24, is a quality engineer in Indiana at Boston Scientific, where urology medical products are manufactured. Zappa, now 38, is in federal custody near Tucson, Ariz.
