Hallmark channels set original films

No plans announced for 'Martha Stewart' replacement

Crown Media Networks announced first- and second-quarter movie slates for Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel at TCA on Thursday. What still remains undecided is the future of the former network’s regular programming: “The Martha Stewart Show” will leave the airwaves in its current form at the end of the summer, and no plans for new programming have yet been announced.

The net’s movie slate is in more stable shape, however: Hallmark is set to air a Christmas cartoon, building on the success of previous years, and will run nine original telepics in the first half of 2012. Those include “A Taste of Romance,” a romantic comedy about chefs in competing restaurants starring Teri Polo and James Patrick Stuart and a second eatery-themed pic, “Operation Cupcake,” starring Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson.

As for Hallmark Movie Channel, the net has five TV movies ready to go, including Luke Perry starrer “Goodnight for Justice: The Measure of a Man,” a Western set in Wyoming; and “Hannah’s Law,” a Western starring Billy Zane and Danny Glover, among others. The former is the sequel to “Goodnight for Justice.”
