I hope you and yours had a Happy Thanksgiving! It’s been great to have a few days off from work to be thankful with family, friends and loved ones. And I intend to savor today as it’s the last day before the rat race begins anew! Tonight, I plan to put aside my guilty pleasure of watching “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” to watch Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got To Do With It, The Matrix, Boyz n the Hood, Akilah and the Bee), in “Have a Little Faith.” The Hallmark Channel Hall of Fame movie airs tonight on ABC at 9 p.m. EST.
Based on the latest best-selling book by New York Times Best-Selling author Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie, The Five People You Meet in Heaven), the movie features Fisburne as Henry Covington, a former drug addict who becomes a preacher to the homeless in Detroit. The movie also features Anika Noni Rose (The Princess and The Frog, Dreamgirls & HBO’s The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency), Mykelti Williamson (Bubba in Forrest Gump) and Martin Landau!
Let’s watch this movie to demonstrate that television movies with faith-themed messages can have huge ratings! Check out the trailer above…
