Well, this is one way to do a Garry Marshall tribute. Lifetime has announced that it is remaking the classic Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey tearjerker Beaches with Idina Menzel playing CC, Midler’s role. In the TV version, Menzel will perform the classics “Wind Beneath My Wings” and “The Glory of Love,” as well as some new songs written especially for Lifetime’s production. Now, we know the ages aren’t right, but can we get Lea Michele to play Hillary, just for the sake of it? The new Beaches will premiere in 2017.
