Charmed fans, get ready to see Alyssa Milano in a very different role. She places Grace Miller in this thriller based on Brazen Virtue by Nora Roberts. Grace is an author, but she turns detective when her sister is murdered and she learns her sister had a double life.

Kathleen moonlighted through a webcam business, and she was gaining in popularity. Who would want her dead? Was it her ex-husband? One of her clients? That’s something Grace wants to help the police to figure out.

Check out the thriller on Thursday, Jan. 13.

Riverdance: The Animated Adventure

The Royal Treatment

Want romance that isn’t quite as steamy? The Royal Treatment is going to be the movie to pick. It’s pretty much like A Christmas Prince and all the other fairytale royal romance movies. So if you love them, you’ll love this one.

This time, we follow Izzy, a New York hairdresser who is given the chance to work at the wedding of a charming prince. Of course, sparks fly, and the prince realizes that maybe he doesn’t want to marry his betrothed. His duty to the kingdom is put to the test.

The last of the Netflix movies is a comedy starring Kevin James. He plays Sean Payton, an NFL head coach who is suspended. Two years later, he heads back to his hometown and coaches his son’s football team.

This is one of those heartfelt comedies. Get ready to see a dad who realizes how much he’s missed in his son’s life, and how sometimes dreams aren’t worth losing everything else.
