TJ Maxx signs on as a returning advertiser for Cinematherapy: Get the Look, providing women with tips to put together an elegant outfit, without breaking the bank. The tips will air as wraps around the film The Audrey Hepburn Story (2000), starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. Both advertisers receive brand presence both on air and online at WE.tv.
