Have room in your life for a bevy of Lifetime movies? You better.

Starting October 3 through December 21, Lifetime Movie Network is unleashing a three-month stunt of new flicks. Beginning with Shocktober in October, the new batch of movies then becomes Hateful & Grateful in November, ending with Slay Bells in December.

Need more reason to clear your DVR? How about the first project starring mother-daughter duo Jennie Garth and Luca Bella? The BH90210 star and her real-life daughter star in Your Family or Your Life. The flick, which premieres Friday, Nov. 1 on Lifetime Movie Network, follows Dr. Kathy Meyer (Garth) as her world is turned upside down when her husband is found dead in their home.

The apparent suicide should be an open and shut case, but because this is a TV movie, Kathy is suspicious of the suicide note and its hint of foul play. With the help of her daughter April (Bella), Kathy's investigation may make her and her daughter possible victims themselves. Josh Server, Angelica Bridges, Alexander Carroll and Alexandra LeMosle also star.

Also part of Hateful & Grateful block will be an all-day marathon of V.C. Andrews films airing November 10 in celebration of the release of the 40th anniversary edition of Flowers in the Attic.
