Beaches remake air date: Idina Menzel hits high note in promo
The sun rises on the Lifetime movie on Jan. 21
The “Glory of Love” continues…in Lifetime’s Beaches.
As fans can hear in the exclusive promo above — which announces the movie’s Saturday, Jan. 21 premiere date — Idina Menzel is following in Bette Middler’s musical footsteps while putting her own spin on the heartbreaking ’80s classic. She won’t be alone on the boardwalk, though: Nia Long will also star in the remake of the Midler-Barbara Hershey flick.
Much like the original the film follows the story of CC (Menzel), an aspiring singer, and Hillary (Long), the daughter of a civil rights lawyer, who become lifelong best friends despite coming from two different worlds.
The film is executive-produced by Denise Di Novi (Crazy Stupid Love) and Alison Greenspan (If I Stay).
Beaches premieres Saturday, Jan. 21 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
