birthday-wish

The new Hallmark Channel movie The Birthday Wish will debut on January 21 at 9 PM.

With her thirtieth birthday approaching, Gwen Turner (Jessy Schram from Falling Skies), a young TV commercial director who plans every detail of her life, hopes her boyfriend, Alex Stone, will finally propose and fulfill her goal of being engaged by the time she’s thirty. Gwen meets Dave McKinley (Luke Macfarlane from Killjoys), a charming commercial director with a spontaneous approach to life, when an upscale ad agency pairs them to work together.

When Alex does not propose, a disappointed Gwen makes a birthday wish: to see what her life will look like in ten years. The next morning, her wish miraculously comes true when she sees a vision of her future in which she is a happily married mom. But to her surprise, the man she’s married to in her vision is Dave, not Alex.

Here is a trailer for The Birthday Wish.

beaches

On January 21, the small screen adaptation of the box office film Beaches will air on Lifetime at 8 PM.

This version of the film follows the serendipitous meeting of two young girls on the Venice Boardwalk, who, though worlds apart in lifestyle, embark on unexpected and lifelong friendship. CC (Broadway star Idina Menzel) is an aspiring singer trying to make it in Los Angeles until she is discovered by a director who gives her her first big shot. Hillary (Nia Long from House of Lies) is the daughter of a prominent civil rights lawyer who struggles to find her own destiny. Their friendship – even with its ups and downs – sustains them for decades.

The cast includes Antonio Cupo (Bomb Girls).

Here is a trailer for Beaches:
