Burglar Bunch

Sneaking Into Your Televisions

6/2/2011 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's the one thing the Burglar Bunch hasn't stolen ... your TV time ... but that's about to change ... because a made-for-TV movie about the infamous thieves is already in production.

A rep for Lifetime tells TMZ, the wheels are in motion for a movie called "Bling Ring" --  which chronicles a group of teens in 2009 who pilfer $3 million in cash and jewelry ... from celebs like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Orlando Bloom. The flick is being produced by Silver Screen Pictures.

But don't expect to hear the names Nick Prugo, Rachel Lee, and Alexis Neiers in the flick -- we're told the burglars' real names had to be changed for "legal reasons."

And get this -- "Dirty Dancing" star Jennifer Grey will take a lead role as the mother of the Prugo character. 

The movie should be on TV in late summer.

It would be a better movie if it was about how all these s***bags have avoided going to trial. When, if ever will the California justice system try these clowns?

Anyone who thinks celebrities get special treatment from the courts should look at these thieves, they got caught stealing millions of dollars of stuff and have never faced a judge.

If your a low life drug taking trailer park s***bag California is the promised land!!!

The one in the upper right corner looks like that Russian Mel Gibson had a baby with. Or maybe Octomom. Maybe all three of them are the same person.

Emerson Go **** yourself. The people that comment on these things are plain ignorant. Take it from someone whos in the case. Dont believe everything you read, the press is 90 percent bull****. HAHA. Its so pathetic. Random people making snap judgments about people they have never met. Spewing vulgar comments like a child would. now i feel like I have no life like the rest of you people who comment on these articles. Did you get robbed? Are you pictured above? Then shut the **** up because nobody cares what you little pissers think. You have no idea. and do yourselves a favor, stop commenting on gossip sites. I mean why the hell are you? Go outside and get some sunlight.
