#FIRSTLOOK: W NETWORK WINTER 2023 LINEUP
Corus Entertainment’s top 10 specialty network* W Network unveiled today a sizzling hot lineup of drama programming to keep viewers warm all winter long; featuring six brand new and returning hit series, plus a four-part W Network original movie special event, all available to stream live and on demand with STACKTV.
All roads lead to home with the premiere of Hallmark Channel Original Series The Way Home on Sunday, January 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The Way Home is a family drama following the lives of three generations of women – Kat Landry (Chyler Leigh), her teen daughter Alice (Sadie Laflamme-Snow) and Kat’s mother Del (Andie MacDowell), who are all strong, willful and independent. More than 20 years prior, life changing events prompted Kat to move away from her small, Canadian farm town of Port Haven and she remains estranged from Del to this day. Alice has never met her grandmother and is unaware of the reasons for their fractured family. As the three generations of women slowly work on finding their footing as a family, they embark on an enlightening – and surprising – journey none of them could have imagined as they learn how to find their way back to each other.
This February, fall head over heels for The Love Club! These four W Network Original Movies will air as a four-part special event, with a premiere every Monday in February at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning February 6. At a New Year’s Eve college party, four women – Nicole (Brittany Bristow), Lauren (Chantel Riley), Sydney (Lily Gao) and Tara (Camille Stopps) – each dealing with their own dating disaster, take a vow to call on one another if they are ever in romantic crisis again. This vow that has them resurrecting their “Love Club” ten years later as each of them search for their unique happily ever after. Viewers will be able to follow the lives of The Love Club by watching the four-part movie event sequentially or as stand-alone movies, in which each woman is the lead in her own romantic journey, helped by the rest of her friends to find their one true love.
Highly anticipated limited series The Best Man: The Final Chapters premieres Thursday, March 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Based on the eponymous Universal film franchise written and directed by Malcom D. Lee (who also directed four episodes), the drama series will catch up with Harper, Lance, Murch, Quentin, Jordan, Robyn, Candace, and Shelby as relationships evolve and past grievances resurface in the unpredictable stages of midlife crisis meets midlife renaissance.
