A quiet Saturday sees a mix of new made-for-tv movies, reality, choice repeats and what may be Netflix's answer to a Gen Z American Pie (by way of... Romania?). Here are the highlights:
TV MOVIE PREMIERE: Following Christmas at Graceland (Hallmark’s highest rated film of 2018), Wedding at Graceland kicks off the network’s month of June Weddings, with new wedding-themed films premiering every Saturday night. Stars Kellie Pickler and Wes Brown, who reunited at Elvis Presley’s Graceland over the holidays, will now hold their nuptials at the legendary estate, complete with a cameo from none other than Priscilla Presley herself. Fans can look forward to a third film in December. 9:00 PM ET on Hallmark
ENCORE PRESENTATION: NBC is giving viewers a second chance to catch this week's premiere of their new summer reality music competition, Songland. The new series gives songwriters a chance to have their songs recorded by the likes of John Legend, the Jonas Brothers, Will.i.Am, Charlie Puth, Macklemore and Meghan Trainor. While the debut episode took a drubbing from some critics, pointing to difficulty applying The Voice's format to songwriting, viewers took to it, and the show’s catchy first single ("We Need Love," recorded by John Legend and released Tuesday Night), immediately cracked the top ten at iTunes. 8:00PM ET on NBC
MOVIE PREMIERE: Hitting Netflix by way of Romania (where it broke box office records), the raunchy teen comedy Oh, Ramona! debuts on the streamer today. Adapted from the bestselling book by comedian Andrei Cioanu, the coming-of-age story was shot in English with an international cast. (Watch trailer) Streaming on Netflix
SERIES PREMIERE: The latest addition to OWN’s Saturday night unscripted series lineup, To Have and to Hold: Charlotte follows five interconnected African American couples as they navigate the ups and downs of love, marriage and intimacy with all the drama we’ve come to expect from the Real Housewives genre. (Watch Trailer) 10:00PM on OWN
