Back to School Mom enrolls on Lifetime!

Back to School Mom Lifetime

If doing extra credit is wrong, I don’t want to be right!

Back to School Mom features a woman returning to college only to find out that the child she gave up long ago is one of her new best friends! It’s like getting a bonus diploma or something! No clue yet if there is some sort of crazy twist, like incest or the son is nuts or anything. It looks like it’s just a straight forward nice story of unexpected things happening. At least we know something good came from all those “Obama wants moms to go back to school” ads that littered the web a few years back!

Mary Thomas, a free-spirited musician, has spent the past two decades traveling the world, but at age 41 she decides to go back to college and finish her degree so that, for once, she can finally finish something she started. Back at her old university, she becomes close friends with her popular and charming “peer tutor”— only to learn that he is actually the son she gave up 20 years earlier.

Back to School Mom stars Kimberly Elise (John Q), Loretta Devine (Waiting to Exhale), Rick Fox (He Got Game), Garcelle Beauvais (NYPD Blue), Harry Lennix (The Matrix Reloaded), and Denzel Whitaker (Warrior).

The movie is directed by Christopher Erskin (Johnson Family Vacation), with Gerald Olson (The Bug Movie) writing the script. The movie filmed in South Africa.

Back to School Mom premieres Saturday, February 14, on Lifetime!

A Day Late and a Dollar Short pays its dues on Lifetime!

A day late and a dollar short lifetime tv

The network that watches you back!

Lifetime’s latest original movie is A Day Late and a Dollar Short, and it’s yet another cool-looking black cast family dramedy. Whoopie Goldberg and a bad wig star as Viola Price, the Price family matriarch who will probably be dead by her next asthma attack, leading her to try to fix all her family’s problems as soon as possible. Note that all solutions involve listening to what Viola says to do! And don’t worry, her family has a lot of problems. Luckily, they’re all played by awesome actors, so it will be an entertaining time. The only bad thing is the Tyler Perry movie they chose to make this a double feature with. So instead watch the Gabby Douglass movie that airs before, then watch A Day Late and a Dollar Short at 8 (7 central), then quickly change the channel before Madea’s Family Reunion airs. Or watch Madea’s Family Reunion if that’s what you are in to. It doesn’t bug me, really.

A Day Late and a Dollar Short stars Whoopi Goldberg, Ving Rhames, Anika Noni Rose, Tichina Arnold, Kimberly Elise, and Mekhi Phifer. It premieres April 19th at 8 pm Eastern/Pacific.

In “A Day Late and a Dollar Short,” when irascible matriarch Viola Price learns that her next asthma attack will likely kill her, she is determined to fix her fractured family before she leaves this world, from her relationship with her husband to the lives of her four children and grandchildren. While on this quest, she must contend with sibling rivalry, teen pregnancy and drug addiction – and that is only one child. Additionally, her jailbird son needs to learn how to be a better father, her granddaughter is in bigger trouble than her daughter is willing to admit and Viola’s estranged husband needs saving from his scheming younger girlfriend. It’s the kind of meddling that the Price family hasn’t experienced from Viola in decades, and she won’t have an easy time bending her loved ones to her will.
