Garth Brooks #1 hit "Unanswered Prayers" will be transformed into a two-hour Lifetime TV movie. I know what you are thinking, because I thought it, too. Lifetime movies are the schmaltziest pieces of entertainment on TV but it is intriguing to see how a four-minute song is translated onscreen into a much longer film. The song is changing length, speed and medium, as it inspired the film.
Samantha Mathis and Eric Close have been cast in the lead roles. The will play a happily married couple whose love is tested when his former high school love, played by Madchen Amick, hits town. Yep, that's a classic Lifetime movie plot if I've ever heard of one. Love is born. Love is tested. Love prevails. The movie will air in November.
"Through his music, Garth Brooks is one of the greatest American storytellers ever, and we couldn't be more excited to be working with him on adapting 'Unanswered Prayers' into a major original movie," said Tanya Lopez, senior VP original movies at Lifetime. "The huge popularity of 'Unanswered Prayers' is proof his work touches so many people."
