Story:  Marion “Mad Dog” Casey (Lester Speight) is one of the biggest, baddest and most outrageous names in professional football, but lately his mouth has been outpacing his performance on the field. When Marion’s contract isn’t renewed and no one else rushes to sign him, he’s not happy.

Meanwhile, his wife Holly (Wendy Raquel Robinson), who has spent many years being a stay-at-home mom for their 10-year-old daughter Lacy (Skai Jackson), sees this as an opportunity for her to pursue her career ambitions in interior design. After chauffeuring Lacy to ballet and theatre class – activities she really doesn’t like, Marion discovers that she has a knack for soccer. He signs her up and begins his new life as a Soccer Dad – the only 300-pound, overbearing, ex-football player in the group!

As he navigates the trickiness of being a hands on parent with soccer mom Lori (Tracey Gold) and the other moms, Marion discovers the joy of his new relationship with his daughter. Source: UP TV.

        Story:  According to the official site:

The inspirational true story of a woman who decides to bake 100 apple cakes and sell them at $40 each in order to save her home – and how this idea completely changes her and her family.

Angela is a single, working mom with three teenage boys.  She juggles various jobs and helps with employment counseling at the local Mission. While thrilled to be in the family home where she learned to bake, the house is falling apart, with sections deemed uninhabitable by inspectors after storm and flood damage. Plus, the car just decided not to start – and the boys all still need shoes, books and food.

She has always made due until now – when her lender calls in the mortgage loan and puts her into foreclosure. Angela has 10 days to come up with $4000 or she loses her home. This is the true story of a woman who decides to bake 100 apple cakes and sell them at $40 each in order to save her home – and how this idea completely changes her and her family.

Word of her “bake sale” soon spreads to the news, locally, nationally and internationally. Orders fly in from all over the world. Angela is taken off guard by the overwhelming support. But soon, this fiercely independent woman learns to depend on the kindness and love of others that comes her way, particularly when the community and local businesses rally around Angela to help her finish and ship the initial stack of orders.  Source(s):  uptv, official site; IMDB.
