Decades Network Celebrates Made for TV Movies; Dancing with the Stars Season 24 Has Mr. T

Decades - Made for TV Movies

Decades Network, the multicast TV network from Weigel Broadcasting Co. and CBS Television Stations, announces Made for TV Movies in March. Decades will celebrate the universal nostalgia of made-for-TV movies all-month long. Decades' Made for TV Movies in March begins Monday, March 6, and continues through Sunday, April 2. Every weekday the made-for-TV movies begin at 9:00 am ET, and on Saturdays, begin at 1:00 pm ET. Decades is proud to present the classic made-for-TV movie, returning to its roots on broadcast television with dozens of memorable titles. Spanning several decades of TV entertainment, the four-week event features the best of the genre, from series television to the dramatization of the biggest headlines in American history. The lineup includes full days dedicated to Diagnosis Murder, featuring Dick Van Dyke, his son Barry and daughter Stacy; The Brady Bunch, including Brady's Go To The Whitehouse with Shelly Long and Gary Cole; a full day featuring Gunsmoke made-for-TV movies starring James Arness; and a weekend binge of Perry Mason TV movie cases. Viewers can also tune in to see TV movie reunions of The Odd Couple, The Love Boat, Wild Wild West, The Streets of San Francisco and Walker, Texas Ranger. The headline TV movies portray the events of September 11th, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the 1987 earthquake in San Francisco and the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan.

The made-for-TV movie has long been a hit with television fans. In recent years, the format has been reimagined on pay TV. Now, Decades is proud to bring these classic titles back to the broadcast airwaves. For fans, Decades Made for TV Movies In March is great way to enjoy a thrilling range of titles. Some feature great television characters like Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Matt Dillon and Carol Brady. Others relive the stories that swept the headlines, offering performances by a variety of actors, including Richard Dreyfuss, Cybill Shepherd, Madeleine Stowe, Courtney B. Vance, Tim Daly, Martin Sheen, Rosanna Arquette, Jean Smart, Scott Glen, Brittany Murphy, William Devane, Valerie Bertinelli and Mandy Patinkin. The event also honors a few actors who we recently lost — Debbie Reynolds, Richard Hatch and Florence Henderson.
