[ # ] Lifetime is bringing back Highway to Heaven
June 17th, 2021 under Lifetime

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.
