Lifetime's Winter Ripped from the Headlines; PIX11 Holiday Lineup

Lifetime Winter Ripped from the Headlines

Off the heels of Lifetime's Fall Ripped from the Headlines slate which reached 16.4 million Total Viewers, Lifetime has ordered three new original movies to join the network's Winter 2020 Ripped from the Headlines slate of five movies centered on true-life events. Starring Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominee Nia Vardalos, Poisoned Love: The Stacey Castor Story follows the tale of a woman whose black widow tendencies are revealed with her murder plots to take down her ex-husbands and daughter. Also greenlit is the psychological thriller The Neighbor in the Window (wt), the story of a suburban wife who finds herself and the security of her family threatened by another seemingly friendly neighborhood mom, starring Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jenn Lyon. The slate includes You Can't Take My Daughter, an inspiring story about a young woman who fought to keep her rapist from gaining custody of her daughter, starring SAG nominee Lyndsy Fonseca and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Kirstie Alley.

These movies join previously announced films, Robin Roberts Presents: Stolen by My Mother: The Kamiyah Mobley Story, executive produced by the award-winning journalist Robin Roberts, and stars Emmy® Award winner and Critics' Choice nominee Niecy Nash (When They See Us) and Chris Watts: Confessions of a Killer, based on the tragic true story of a doting father who murdered his wife and kids starring Ashley Williams, Sean Kleier and Brooke Smith. The movies begin on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2020.


Yule Log

PIX11 (WPIX in NYC) is pleased to announce its holiday lineup for December. 'Twas the Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve at 11pm, PIX11 News Anchor Kaity Tong hosts a holiday reading of the Clement Clarke Moore poem A Visit from Saint Nicholas: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas from the Church of the Intercession in Manhattan. 'Twas the Night Before Christmas will also be available for viewing at 11pm on PIX11’s Facebook page and PIX11.com. On Christmas Morning from 8-9am The Yule Log (1966) will air. In the original 1966 version of the Yule Log, which until 2016, had not been seen on air since 1969. The 1966 version of the Yule Log, filmed at Gracie Mansion, aired each Christmas Eve through 1969 until the tape degraded. A new Yule Log was filmed in 1970 as a replacement and has aired ever since. Will also stream on PIX11.com and Facebook Live (on PIX11 News, PIXYuleLog and WPIXArchives Facebook pages). Then from 9am-1pm The Yule Log (1970) will air.

Then on New Year's Eve, it is the annual The Honeymooners marathon. From the Gotham Bus Company depot to the Raccoon Lodge, since 1958 PIX11 has been NY's home for The Honeymooners. New Yorkers have been ringing in the New Year with Ralphie Boy and PIX11 when The Honeymooners Marathon began airing on New Year's Eve in 1996. This year, the PIX11 Honeymooners Marathon of classic episodes begins Tuesday, December 31 at 11pm and runs through 5pm on Wednesday, January 1.
