Dying to Be Loved is a Lifetime conspiracy!

Dying to be Loved Lifetime

What gas stations do to protect their bathroom keys is getting worse all the time

[adrotate banner=”7″]Lifetime returns to its roots with another Original Movie about Evil Men, in this case a boyfriend so evil that he convinces his teenage girlfriend to pretend to commit suicide with him so they can avoid him getting arrested for abusing him. Be he didn’t count on the fact that his girlfriend’s mom was a woman! Dun dun DUN! So this woman is now hot on the trail to take down the Evil Man! Go get him, mom! Dying to Be Loved (aka A Mother’s Suspicion) shows us the length a mom will go to to prove that her daughter didn’t kill herself, which I guess is a good thing to believe if you live in a Lifetime movie.

Jill Yates’ teenage daughter Emily starts dating bad boy Gary, whose violent behavior lands Emily and him in trouble. To avoid prison, Gary and Emily appear to commit a double suicide, but Jill sets out to prove that Gary has gone on the run… and has taken Emily with him.

Dying to Be Loved stars Lindsay Hartley, Paloma Kwiatkowski, Dan Payne, Jedidiah Goodacre, James Pizzinato, and Jay Brazeau. Its written by Stephen Lyons (Lone Star Struck) and directed by Paul Shapiro (Spring Break Shark Attack)

Dying to Be Loved premieres Saturday, April 16th on Lifetime!

Zapped Disney Zendaya

Disney’s Carrie!

Disney Channel blasts out another original movie with Zapped, wherein a teenage girl discovers her cell phone has the power to control boys. Chaos ensues as things go inevitably wrong, and soon young Zoey Stevens (Zendaya) learns a valuable lesson about family and not mind controlling vast amounts of people.

Overall, the characters are charming and well cast. Zendaya seems far more comfortable reacting to all the weird things going on around her than participating in them herself. She spends so much of her interaction with gross boy antics stretching out her muscles making disgusted faces, it starts to become hilarious. You can tell she’s just having fun as everyone acts crazy all around her. Chenelle Peloso is one of those perfect talky best friend characters who wears a hat that’s in almost every teen movie (yet I’ve never seen one in the wild). Spencer Boldman is far too cool for school, someone who already learned everything, so spends his day playing the faux rebel. Special performance bonus go to Emilia McCarthy as the villainess Taylor Dean, who just hates that darn Zoey Stevens for stealing her man and her dance reputation and basically everything. McCarthy spends the whole film chewing the scenery being fun to hate and it’s awesome. She’s joined by sidekick Yuki (Louriza Tronco), Taylor’s toady who thinks she’s her BFF, and Taylor constantly slams her for saying ridiculous things (sometimes deservedly, sometimes not!)

Yes, we were hanging out in this bathroom for hours waiting for you to come in!

Young Zoey Stevens (Zendaya) grew up with it just being her and her mom for so long that she barely remembers anything different (the reference to her father is he once gave her a castle music box, it’s implied he passed on). She lives most of her life on her cell phone, using apps for everything. We open with her mother’s wedding to her new husband, Ted Thompson, who comes complete with three rowdy boys and a dog (Adam, Zach, Ben, and the dog Humphrey). Things hit a full Brady Bunch as the boys repeatedly cause huge messes, starting with splattering Zoey while she’s giving her maid of honor speech.

They Live the App!

Things don’t get better at her new school, as the boys there are all pre-divided up into cliques: the gamers, the skateboarders, the stinky guys, the shirtless muscleheads. Special consideration given to a guy known as The Tripp (Jedidiah Goodacre), who refers to himself in the third person in between farting on people. The only people not insane is her new BFF for life, Rachel Todds (Chenelle Peloso), and the single non-disgusting boy in the school, with the neo-leftist name Jackson Kale (Spencer Boldman). Think James Dean crossed with Edward the vampire, with Jackson Kale wearing his sunglasses inside, in the dark while watching a film strip. Of course he’s the love interest, calling Zoey “Smart Phone” as he quickly picks up on her habit.

[adrotate banner=”1″]TVLine dropped a cast photo for the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants, the film where the offspring of the great Disney movie villains all go to high school together with the kids from the Disney princesses and it goes all High School Musical. The cast is packed with awesome players and it will be entertaining and possibly quite awesome.

Below is Dove Cameron as Maleficent’s daughter Mal, Booboo Stewart as Jafar’s son Jay, Cameron Boyce (Jessie) as Cruella De Vil’s son Carlos, and Sofia Carson as the Evil Queen’s daughter Evvie.

Other cast members include: Kristin Chenoweth as Maleficent, Maz Jobrani as Jafar, Wendy Raquel Robinson as Cruella De Vil, Kathy Najimy as the Evil Queen, Mitchell Hope as Belle and Beast’s son Ben, Brenna D’Amico as Fairy Godmother’s daughter Jane, Zachary Gibson as Dopey’s son Doug, Jedidiah Goodacre as Cinderella’s son Chad, Sarah Jeffery as Sleeping Beauty’s daughter Audrey, Dianne Doan as Mulan’s daughter Lonnie, Stephanie Bennett as Snow White, and Dan Payne as Beast.

In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic Beauty and the Beast) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters. These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?

Kenny Ortega, the Emmy Award-winning director and choreographer of Disney’s record-setting High School Musical TV movies and feature film, returns to Disney Channel to direct Descendants.
