Murphy's 'Clueless' day, her drug issue, wedding and death are all captured in the sneak peek for the Lifetime biopic.

Lifetime doesn't hit the brake in promoting "" despite an objection from 's parents. The network has just released the first trailer for the TV movie, which captures the ups and downs in the star's life.

From her rise to stardom through "Clueless" to her drug issue, and from the pressure she got for being under the spotlight to her wedding, all are depicted in the biopic. The TV movie will also tackle her sudden death at a young age of 32.

Amanda Fuller is cast in the title role, with as her mother, Sharon Murphy. Joe Menendez directed it with the script provided by Peter Hunziker and Cynthia Riddle.

Both Murphy's mother and father Angelo Bertolotti said they had not been consulted for the movie. Bertolotti told Radar Online earlier this month, "Lifetime has not been authorized to produce the true story of Brittany Murphy. I should have been consulted. I intend to litigate Lifetime in a court of law."

The biopic will debut Saturday, September 6 at 8 P.M. on Lifetime.
