Two men on a road trip find themselves bonding just like their Vietnam-veteran dads once did in “Faith of Our Fathers,” a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment, let alone a moving and powerful testimony about the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Amazingly graceless as it veers from broad situational comedy to stiff, po-faced military drama, this latest dubious cinematic sermon from Pure Flix (which also produced the 2014 faith-based hit “God’s Not Dead”) seems likely to appeal strictly to that segment of the audience that would seem to require it least — namely, believers who have trouble telling the difference between art and propaganda, or understanding why the difference matters.

The phrase “Lifetime movie” has become synonymous with a certain breed of made-for-tv melodrama. Lifetime is looking to harness that built-in branding with the launch of an Svod service that will offer a package of about 30 original telepics for $3.99 a month.
The Lifetime Movie Club app bows today on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch platforms to start. It will expand to other platforms, likely Android, in the fall. The movies will be available without commercials, and the assortment of titles will be refreshed weekly.
In recent years, Lifetime has expanded the focus of its original telepics to everything from high-end Emmy-nominated adaptations of “Steel Magnolias” and “The Trip to Bountiful” to kitschy behind-the-scenes looks at pop culture favorites such as “Saved by the Bell” and the upcoming “unauthorized” movies revisiting “Full House,” “Beverly Hills, 90210″ and “Melrose Place.”
But the perception of the “Lifetime movie” brand has been hard to shake. »

As if it wasn’t bad enough that Melrose Place has been dropped from Netflix (as of July 1), the iconic Fox drama is about to be dragged through the mud by Lifetime.
The network — already responsible for spinning the “unauthorized” tales of Full House and Saved by the Bell — is preparing to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the Darren Star-created series, which ran for 226 episodes from 1992 to 1999. (That’s where the saga ended, by the way. Despite what you’ve heard, there was never a short-lived »
Break out the chokers and miniskirts! Lifetime has now greenlit “Unauthorized Melrose Place Story.”
The TV movie plans to be a tell-all of the Darren Star-created Fox sudser (not to be confused with the short-lived revamp that aired for a season on CW). It will cover early casting dramas and the famous arrival of Heather Locklear, who came on board to “save” the series, as well as the actors begging the “Melrose” writers for even wilder storylines to make them fan favorites.
The project is executive produced by Michael Larkin (“Secrets in the Walls”) and Howard Braunstein (“The Informant!”), produced by Christian Bruyere (“A Girl’s Best Friend”) and written by Dana Schmalenberg (“Single Ladies”). Mark Griffiths (“A Novel Romance”) will direct.
The “Melrose Place” story continues Lifetime’s trend of developing gossipy depictions of what went down on and off screen in 1980s and 1990s programming. Tell-alls of »

In the 1990s, there was no bigger prime time soap than "Melrose Place" and now Lifetime has chosen it for the subject for its fourth 'unauthorized' tell-all film.
Starting life in 1992 as a more adult-centric spin-off of the popular teen soap "Beverly Hills 90210," 'Melrose' became a smash in its own right as the Aaron Spelling series explored the lives of twenty somethings in Los Angeles over the course of seven seasons and over two hundred episodes.
Courtney Thorne-Smith, Andrew Shue, Grant Show, Doug Savant, Marcia Cross, Daphne Zuniga, Laura Leighton, Jack Wagner, Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett, Rob Estes, Brooke Langton, Jamie Luner, Alyssa Milano, Lisa Rinna, Vanessa Williams, Kelly Rutherford and Heather Locklear starred.

Aunt Becky's still got it! Lori Loughlin took to Instagram on Sunday to show off her workout regimen. The actress looked stunning while striking the perfect yoga pose as she enjoyed the sunny weather outside. In the photo, the 50-year-old beauty looks toned and tanned rocking a pink sports bra and black leggings. "Strike a pose! #yoga," Loughlin captioned the cute candid. Perhaps the actress is getting in shape for the new "Full House" spinoff, "Fuller House," which is set to hit Netflix in 2016. Lori confirmed that she will be reprising her role as Aunt Becky while chatting with "Good Morning America" in May. "Officially, I am going to be part of the spinoff 'Fuller House,'" the actress revealed on the show. The series will follow DJ Tanner (Candace Cameron Bure), Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber) in their adult lives as they try to »

It seems that at the current time, we are being swept away by a torrent of rebooted television shows. The X-Files is filming six brand new episodes, and David Lynch has finally signed on the dotted line to deliver a new season of Twin Peaks. We will soon be seeing resuscitations of Full House, Coach, Mr. Show and The Muppet Show, too, as well as some more Arrested Development. This determination to return to the familiar gives TV networks and streaming channels something of an air of nervousness, but when audiences are given the opportunity to revisit old favourites, is that such a bad thing?
For as long as there has been television, there has been dedicated television fandom. In today’s society, this fandom often takes the form of co-ordinated campaigns that try to keep dying productions on the air – a notable trend that seems to demonstrate our inability to let things go. »

Voyeuristic sex scenes, unprintable dialogue and morally reprehensible decisions: not exactly the type of content you’d expect from Lifetime.
But the network’s UnReal, which goes behind-the-scenes of a Bachelor-type reality series to expose the manipulation and dirty deeds that make the show, has been surprising and provoking viewers since its premiere in early June.
“[Lifetime] wanted to prove a point that they wanted to rebrand themselves,” says star Constance Zimmer, who plays Quinn, boss of Shiri Appleby’s morally conflicted producer Rachel. “With this kind of show, »

It’s been nearly 20 years since Jackée Harry and Tahj Mowry shared a scene on ABC/The WB’s Sister, Sister — and as you’ll see during their reunion on Wednesday’s Baby Daddy (ABC Family, 8:30/7:30c), a lot has changed in that time.

It’s probably safe to say the whole “no second acts in American life” axiom by Fitzgerald really no longer applies to modern culture. From Robert Downey Jr. to Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, "Full House" and more, American culture and media loves tales of redemption. But not every comeback story has to crawl out of ruin, some talents just fade into the background and then rise again for their second kick at the can. Actor Lily Tomlin hasn’t really gone anywhere over the last few years — she had a memorable role in David O. Russell’s “I Heart Huckabees” a few years back, but the comedienne is currently having a moment. Her Netflix show “Grace and Frankie” in which she stars opposite Jane Fonda appears to be a big hit after just a few weeks of release and the internet subscription service has just renewed the series for a second season. »

Fagerbakke joins original star Craig T. Nelson in the TV revival, which is slated to debut midseason.
Michael “Dauber” Dybinski was an assistant coach, along with Jerry Van Dyke, who played Luther Van Dam. Dybinski was a stereotypical dumb jock who never graduated from Minnesota State, where he was an athlete. Despite being known as a silly sidekick, the character would often lend valued help to the team.
Since “Coach,” Fagerbakke has found success behind the screen as the voice of Patrick on Nickelodeon’s long-running “SpongeBob SquarePants.” He also appeared in “How I Met Your Mother” and “Growing Up Fisher.”
