Lifetime has released the first trailer for their original movie, Highway to Heaven, starring Jill Scott and Barry Watson

The film is a contemporary take on Michael Landon’s iconic 80s television series “Highway to Heaven,” the new movie follows Angela Stewart (Jill Scott), an angel who is sent back to earth to help others in need.  

In the premiere movie, Angela takes on the role of a temporary school counselor and finds herself working alongside junior high school principal Bruce Banks (Barry Watson) as she intervenes in the lives of a troubled student Cody (Ben Daon), his father Jeff (Robert Moloney) and his aunt Vanessa (Victoria Bidewell), who are grieving the tragic loss of Cody’s mother, Melissa (Ashley Ross). 

As Angela seemingly works miracles with Cody, Bruce is stunned when he learns of the divine nature of Angela’s work. 

Just like the original series, Lifetime wishes to retain the same messages of hope and encouragement for its audience, while exploring social and emotional issues with sensitivity, joy, and humor.

Highway to Heaven premieres on November 6, 2021.
