Get the tissues ready to watch the Highway to Heaven trailer

Lifetime recently announced that they were bringing back Highway to Heaven as several telemovies starring Jill Scott. Today, they released the trailer for the first movie, and I am crying like Barry Watson is during it.

It is just as wholesome and cheesy as the original. Because of that, I can’t wait to watch it on November 6th. Will you be watching?


Lifetime is bringing back Highway to Heaven

Lifetime announced today that they will be doing movie specials as a sequel to the Highway to Heaven series. Jill Scott will play the angel, and Barry Watson will play a junior high school principal who helps her out.

“The original Highway to Heaven was appointment viewing for millions and in a time when we need those messages of hope the most, we are excited to bring back the iconic series in a new way,” said Tanya Lopez, Executive Vice President, Scripted Programming, Lifetime & LMN. “Having worked with Jill previously for some of Lifetime’s most celebrated movies, we know she is the perfect actor to bring her passion and brilliance to this role. I just love her…Jill amplifies everything she touches in ways that make her pop off the screen. And the addition of Barry was just icing on the cake. I believe we have assembled a dynamic new duo with both Jill and Barry at the helm.”

There is no f*cking way you could get me to do this. No way in hell. I believe the original is cursed because both Michael Landon and Victor French died young from short battles with cancer. French died in 1988, three months after being diagnosed with lung cancer. Landon died in 1991, less than three months after being told he had pancreatic cancer. I believe if you do a project that is too close to the reality of the afterlife, it will kill you. There was Poltergeist, Exorcist, Ghost, and Highway to Heaven, to name a few.


Cousin Oliver reunites with his Brady Bunch cousins for a Lifetime Christmas movie

Since so many of us are getting the vaccine, Lifetime is giving us a Christmas present early. Today they announced that they have a Christmas movie coming out this year with several cast members from a show we grew up on, along with some other sitcom legends.

Blending Christmas stars Barry Williams (Greg), Christopher Knight (Peter), Mike Lookinland (Bobby), Susan Olsen (Cindy), and Robbie Rist (Cousin Oliver). Yes, for all of us who wondered what happened to Cousin Oliver, we will find out in a few months! That is enough reason to tune in.

If the Bradys are not enough for you, then Greg Evigan, one of My Two Dads, is on it, along with Beth Broderick, who is one of Sabrina the Teenage Witch’s aunts. They will be joined by Telma Hopkins, who was bosom buddies with the Bosom Buddies and Nell on Gimme A Break.

For Gen Xers, this is like getting a White Christmas on December 25th in Los Angeles or Miami.

What is the telemovie about? “The holiday season is in full swing when Emma (Haylie Duff) learns that the resort where she used to spend Christmases with her family is being redeveloped. Her boyfriend Liam (Aaron O’Connell), hatches a plan to bring her to the resort one last time to propose! He secretly invites both their families to join them and Emma is delighted when she arrives to find the whole family bunch there. Of course, no holiday gathering is complete without drama, and soon the families are bickering over every detail! The added stress from trying to blend the two families eventually takes a toll on Emma and Liam, who start questioning their own relationship. Now just days before Christmas, the two families realize that they’re going to have to work together in order to reunite Emma and Liam!”

So this what it means when we sing Joy to World during the Holiday Season because I am feeling it now!


Reba McEntire is getting a Christmas movie at Lifetime

Reba McEntire and Lifetime have teamed up for a two-movie deal. The first movie will be coming this holiday season.

Christmas In Tune tells the story of Belle, a marketing executive who is worried she may lose her job. She decides to reunite a singing duo for a charity Christmas concert in order, but the problem is – the singers are actually her parents and they have not spoken to each other in years! Soon the at-odds couple is helping Belle get her life in order and she begins her own romantic duet with the new man in her life. McEntire will sing and star in this film.

Then sometime in 2022, she will be back with another movie that is not related to Christmas.

Lifetime is a good home for Reba because her old sitcom used to air on their network. Therefore, viewers are used to her fiery personality that matches her hair color.


The trailer for KFC’s Lifetime movie is finger licking good
December 8th, 2020 under Fast Food, Lifetime, Mario Lopez. [ Comments: none ]
Yesterday, Lifetime and KFC announced that they made a 15-minute film together with Mario Lopez as Colonel Sanders. Today, they released the trailer for the minimovie, and it is even better than we could have imagined.

There is more cheese in that promo than is in their mac and cheese. Because of that, I cannot wait to see it on December 13th at 12n. I bet it will be an instant classic like KFC’s fried chicken has been since 1930.

While we might never find out what the 11 herbs and spices are, at least we will find out what happened in Colonel Sanders’ love life on Sunday.
