Beaches

Aired on Jan 21, 2017

Friends are family that you choose to have for a lifetime. Tony® Award winner Idina Menzel (“Frozen”) and NAACP Image Award winner Nia Long (“The Best Man Holiday”) star as lifelong best friends in “Beaches,” premiering on Saturday, January 21 at 8pm ET/PT. “Beaches” is directed by Emmy® Award nominee, Allison Anders. It features new takes on the classic songs “Wind Beneath My Wings” and “The Glory of Love” and includes several other songs recorded specifically for the movie.

In this contemporary remake, “Beaches” 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 (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 (Long) 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.

“Beaches” also stars Gabriella Pizzolo and Grace Capeless as the young CC and Hillary along with Jodi Capeless, Sanai Victoria and Antonio Cupo.

“Beaches” is executive produced by Denise Di Novi (“Crazy Stupid Love”) and Alison Greenspan (“If I Stay”). Allison Anders (“Ring of Fire”) directs from a teleplay by Nikole Beckwith (“Stockholm, Pennsylvania”) and Bart Baker (“Honeymoon with Harry”), based upon the novel by Iris Rainer Dart. A+E Networks will also distribute the movie internationally.
