The TV-movie remake starring Idina Menzel and Nia Long will air Saturday, Jan. 21 at 8/7c, the network announced Wednesday.

Beaches, you may remember, is the source of Midler’s hit ballad “Wind Beneath My Wings.” And yes, that song gets a fresh rendition here, along with several others from the original movie soundtrack. Allison Anders (Ring of Fire) is on board to direct the remake, and child actors Gabriella Pizzolo and Grace Capeless play the young CC and Hillary in the flashback scenes.
