Hallmark greenlights ‘Crew Nine’

Fire-fighting tale to star Cuba Gooding Jr.

Hallmark Hall of Fame has greenlit “Crew Nine,” a drama starring Cuba Gooding Jr. as a youth counselor who inspires troubled kids.

Pic will be helmed by Darnell Martin (“Cadillac Records”), from a script by Ligiah Villa-lobos (“Under the Same Moon”).

Project will be the third Hallmark telepic to air on ABC under the licensing deal the net signed earlier this year after CBS declined to renew the franchise. The first title to fall under that deal, “Mitch Albom’s Have a Little Faith,” airs Sunday.

“Crew Nine” revolves around a counselor at a youth detention facility who trains kids to battle forest fires and assist the public during other natural disasters. Production begins this month in Atlanta.
