SundanceTV's Ultimate Mother's Day Marathon; Networks Gearing Up for Upfront Week

SundanceTV

SundanceTV celebrates Mother's Day with its "Ultimate Mother's Day Marathon," beginning Sunday, May 14 at 6 AM ET/5 AM CT. The programming event will feature back-to-back episodes of The Mary Tyler Moore Show in addition to four films that tug at the heartstrings or bring a smile to one's face. The "Ultimate Mother's Day Marathon" begins with The Mary Tyler Moore Show, created by James L. Brooks, in celebration of Moore's life’s work. Immediately following is Susan Sarandon's Golden Globe® nominated performance in the heartwarming family film Stepmom, and Jane Fonda in the comedy Monster-in-Law alongside Jennifer Lopez. The day-long programming event is rounded out by two heartwarming romantic comedies, Sweet Home Alabama starring Reese Witherspoon and the network premiere of Jennifer Lawrence's Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winning performance in Silver Linings Playbook.


Marvel's The Gifted

With the upfront week approaching next week, we have more upfront news with some pickups, renewals and cancellations. First at Fox, they have canceled dramas Rosewood and Sleepy Hollow, but picked up new series Marvel's The Gifted. The series focuses on a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Series stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Marcos Diaz, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White. Moving on to ABC, ABC is bringing back American Idol. The network has closed an agreement with producers FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment, a division of CORE Media Group. Together they will revive television's most successful and recognized music competition series for the 2017-2018 season, bringing back the fan-favorite and making more dreams come true. A host and judges will be announced at a later time. And finally, NBC has renewed drama Taken for a second season and has upped its episode order to 16 (as the first season only had 10).
