The Eye will kick off the new season of “The CBS Sunday Movie” with a slew of faces familiar to viewers of the network, including Tom Selleck, Mary Tyler Moore and Candice Bergen.
“Twelve Mile Road” will bow Sept. 28, the first Sunday of the 2003-04 season. Pic features Selleck as a divorced farmer whose life takes a wild twist when his troubled daughter comes to stay with him for a summer.
After a bumpy couple of seasons, CBS is hoping to lure viewers back into the Sunday fold with a slate of pics featuring more traditional themes and actors.
Eye has also locked in airdates for three other original telepics:
- Scribe Anna Quindlen’s bestselling novel “Blessings” comes to the small screen Oct. 5. Moore stars, along with Kathleen Quinlan and Ralph Waite.
- Bergen plays a suspense novelist who gets caught up in her own life-threatening drama in “Footsteps,” bowing Oct. 12.
- Jackie Collins revisits familiar turf with “Hollywood Wives: The New Generations,” premiering Oct. 19. Farrah Fawcett and Robin Givens star.
CBS will serve up the broadcast premiere of “What Women Want” on Oct. 26. Two-part mini “The Reagans” is a possible November sweeps contender.
Eye’s Sunday movies all air from 9-11 p.m.
