‘Highway to Heaven’: Lifetime Offers a New Take on the Original Drama

Viewers may remember the iconic ’80s television series Highway to Heaven, starring Michael Landon as Jonathan, an angel on Earth helping those in need.

‘America’s Most Wanted’ Returns With New Technology, New Suspects — And a New Host

What makes this new version of the show different from the original? Elizabeth Vargas: Well, just the […]
