Two media companies face a multi-million dollar lawsuit by Natalee Holloway's mother over what she calls a farce of a TV series.

Beth Holloway says the two media companies came to her under a premise of new evidence about her daughter's 2005 disappearance in Aruba.

Holloway says the companies used false pretenses to get her DNA -- claiming they needed it to confirm the discovery of her daughter's remains.

The teenager went missing on a trip with fellow Mountain Brook High School graduates and her body was never located.

Now, Beth Holloway is suing Oxygen Media and Brian Graden media over their 6-part series last year.

She says the series made outrageous claims about what happened to her daughter and now she wants them to pay.

Holloway's lawsuit asks for a trial by jury, as well as compensatory damages of no less than $20 million dollars and punitive damages no less than $25 million dollars.
