Will they be as good as Lifetime's originals?!
Probably not if you hate country.
Country Music Channel has established a new division that will produce CMT Original Movies for the network.
First up for the network are two films premiering on TV in late summer.
To the Mat is a southern wrestling drama starring Ricky Schroder and actress-singer Laura Bell Bundy about an ex-wrestler who’s trying to keep his family’s down-and-out southern wrestling school above water.
New In Town Reel Love stars Renee Zellweger LeAnn Rimes as a successful, big city girl who returns to her small town roots after a family emergency.
She then embarks on a soulful, comedic journey to reconnect with family and friends and find meaningful romance along the way.
Wait, we thought these were supposed to be originals? Ha!
Are U excited to see LeAnn in her CMT Original Movie this summer?
