CBS Relaunching Sunday Night Movies With Indiana Jones & Mission Impossible
Indiana Jones, Titanic, and more iconic movies are heading to TV to fill an empty schedule.
With the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic shutting down TV production throughout the entertainment industry, many TV networks are being forced to get creative with their programming schedules. That includes CBS, which is looking to the past to fill some holes in its schedule.
Beginning May 3, the network will begin presenting blockbuster films on Sunday evenings, much like it did for decades under the CBS Sunday Movie banner. In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS executive vice president of program planning Noriko Kelley said the event is "a five-week programming event with epic films, iconic stars and brilliant stories that viewers love...and love to watch together."
You can see the movies that will be presented below.
- May 3: Raiders of the Lost Ark
- May 10: Forrest Gump
- May 17: Mission: Impossible
- May 24: Titanic
- May 31: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
It's worth noting all of the titles being presented as part of this new block of movies are Paramount Pictures releases. Paramount, like CBS, is part of ViacomCBS. It remains to be seen if CBS will continue the Sunday night movie programming beyond the initial five-week schedule.
