With 40 Lifetime movie titles at launch in August, TVNZ will continue to add four new titles each month from Lifetime’s library of TV movies throughout the first year. The available slate of Lifetime Original Movies includes College Admissions Scandal, the adaptation of V.C. Andrews’ Flowers in the Attic franchise, the Jane Green series, the Wrong franchise, and Harry and Meghan: Becoming Royal (pictured).

We are thrilled to partner with them in launching a dedicated Lifetime digital channel featuring original, premium, high-quality and award-winning movies, which New Zealand audiences will love.”
