  7. Hi, I'm Pam Stater. My husband and I love Lee's movie "Shadow on the Mesa". The story is terrific, as is the cast. This movie BEGS for a sequel to be written and a tv movie made! Please, Hallmark, give Lee the go-ahead to write it! We saw it on PIXL and are looking forward to joining everyone for Hallmark's premiere of this wonderful western on March 23rd.

  10. I have re-checked the Hallmark Movie Channel listings and according to the schedule on their site, "Shadow on the Mesa" is supposed to still air on March 23rd, 2013.

    I personally do not have the Hallmark Movie Channel - so I have no way of checking listings on my TV. I will contact HMC and see if I can get an answer on this for all of you. Are you for certain checking the Hallmark Movie Channel and NOT the Hallmark Channel listings? Shadow on the Mesa should be listed to air at 8 PM & 10 PM.

  11. Just wanted to let you all know - Shadow on the Mesa will air Saturday night, March 23rd, 2013 on the Hallmark MOVIE Channel. I have seen lots of press for it: including ads online, commercials, Twitter promotions, and interviews with Wes Brown and Kevin Sorbo on the Hallmark Channel daytime talkshow: Home and Family, to promote the movie.

    Hope this information is helpful to everyone who was looking for this new western movie.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Shadow on the Mesa will air March 23, 2013, twice, and 5 times on March 24, 2013, and it will be repeated later on, but only on the Hallmark Movie Channel at this time. I don't believe there will be a DVD until the movie has run on TV for at least a year, but if it's really, popular, they might do it earlier. The actors gave their all to this movie, which makes me humble but proud. I can't say enough about Larry Levinson's great production and editing. God bless, Lee Martin

  13. In the opening scene there is a pan out to a far hill. It's obvious there is a fence because it's green on one side and eaten pasture on the other. But the movie looks great otherwise except for this modern time error

  14. Uh oh I saw a white wind turbine in a scene ...

  30. For those who asked, Shadow On The Mesa was shot in most part on location at Big Sky Ranch, Simi California. Melody Movie Ranch in Newhall Ca. and two or three other So. Cal. spots. DSCsr (director)

  31. I luckily DVR'd this movie when it aired and have watched it several times since. This is a great movie that was fantastically done. All of the cast members are perfect for their roles, the acting is well done. It's nice to see so many well known stars in it. Well done, Lee Martin and Hallmark. We need more westerns just like this I agree, would love to see a sequel here. Can't wait to see this on DVD!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd like to know why the actor who played Chuck Eastman wasn't listed. He performed just as well as any of them and deserves his credit as well.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Chuck Eastman was played by Micah Alberti, he is listed in the end credits, not the ahead of the show credits, which is an agent deal.He is a fine young man to work with and one heck of a good actor.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to reply! It is good to hear he is as good of a person as he seems to be! Congrats on a job well done all around. This is a great western that I hope becomes a classic. We need more like this.

  34. Hi, love all the comments and the sharp eyed scenery viewers. As already noted above, Shadow on the Mesa was filmed at Big Sky Ranch in Simi Valley. Kevin Sorbo is married to a fine actress, and I believe they have 3 children. I based my screenplay on one of my unpublished novels, and the novel is now being marketed by an agent. Actors: Wes Brown (Wesley Rawlins), Kevin Sorbo (Ray Eastman), Gail O'Grady (Mona Eastman), Shannon Lucio (Rosalie), Micah Aloberti (Chuck Eastman),Greg Evigan (Pete Dowdy),Andrew Lawrence (J.T. Dowdy), Shane Johnson (Art Dowdy) Steve Bridewater (Jonesy), David Florek (Baldy), Barry Corbin (Jake Rawlins), Meredith Baxter (Emilie Rawlins), Deirdre Lovejoy (Sally), Jansen Panetieri (teen outlaw), Ronnie Gene Blevins (hapless prisoner), Dusty Sorg (Potluck), Tate Ammons (Clem Welsh), erik Aude (Thor Welsh) Rich Blanchard (bartender). Best, Lee Martin

  35. This is to also thank David Cass, Sr., the great director of Shadow on the Mesa for the added location information above. David added some great touches and stunts to the movie. His sure hand and dedication by the actors were a grand combination. Best, Lee Martin

  36. Have just been told that SHADOW ON THE MESA will again show on HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL in July of 2013. (I pay $5 a month more to Direct TV for this channel, and they have been also making free offers for a period of time, as has Dish.)
    Best, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi, to all. After being told it would be July, Hallmark emailed me again, and she said she had decided not to wait that long. She will show SHADOW ON THE MESA April 29, 2013 on the Hallmark Movie Channel (not the regular Hallmark channel) at 9 PM ET, 6 PM PT. She moved it up because of the continuing interest, for which we are grateful. Best, Lee Martin

  38. Thank you, Lee Martin, for sharing this Movie news here with us. I am happy for you and glad to know that "Shadow on the Mesa" was such a great success!!!

    I appreciate you sharing the cast list and various movie details, including the next airing date of the movie. I'm sure many people will mark their calenders and set their dvrs! I've certainly heard a lot of positive feedback! Congratulations to you!

    Please keep us updated on any more "Shadow on the Mesa" movie news (many are hoping for a Sequel!) and news on your novel, as well!

    Is there any chance we could get "Shadow on the Mesa" to air on the regular Hallmark Channel, as well???

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi, you have a great system here. I'll try to paste in the Hallmark ratings press release (from the Internet):
    ----------------------------
    " HALLMARK PRESS RELEASE 3/25/13
    Hallmark Movie Channel's 2013 ratings momentum continues, with the Saturday, March 23 premiere of SHADOW ON THE MESA garnering a 1.1 household rating with nearly 1.1 million unduplicated viewers. The fourth movie in the network's expanded slate of 10 original movies for 2013, "Shadow on the Mesa" replaces "Our Wild Hearts" as the 2nd highest rated and 2nd most watched original movie in network history among households and total viewers."
    ---------------------------------------
    Viewers have all made this possible. God bless them. (I only know about the Hallmark Movie Channel.) Thanks for making this great site available. Best, Lee Martin

  40. I agree, thanks for the update on the new showing on April 29th and the details on the cast and movie. Looking forward to the book coming out (and maybe a sequel...)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I've been asked who played young Bates, who died in the barn.

    I'm hoping David Cass, Sr., the great director of this movie, has the answer and will supply it on your wonderful site.

    Thanks to all, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  42. The fellow who rode into the ranch and was drug into the barn (because the wind was blowing too hard to play the scene outside) was, JAMES Wleck...Lee, I have been called a lot of things to my face but never "great" nor a "director". dscsr

    ReplyDelete
  43. Shadow on the Mesa looks good, but I don't have HMC. Any word if they will ever play this movie on the regular Hallmark Channel. I don't know why they can't play all of the original HMC movies on Hallmark, too, like a week later as they do the Hallmark Hall of Fame Movies, which are first on ABC, then on the Hallmark Channel the next week. It would make sense. Anyway, I hope they put this on on Hallmark Ch or release it on DVD. Enjoyed reading all the comments.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yeah, please play this and all of the Hallmark Movie Channel Movies on the regular Hallmark Channel, too. I can't afford to pay more monthly for a different cable package and buy a new HD TV, too. I have noticed that they play all of the Hallmark Channel Movies on the Hallmark Movie Channel so why can't they do the reverse?

    ReplyDelete
  45. This was a great movie. Thanks for giving us a re-air date. I will definitely be watching.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi, David Cass, Sr: Thanks for the actor info. No worry, you are a great director. What you did with Shadow on the Mesa has made me very proud. It moved fast, sure and was entertaining. The jail escape is a classic. My brothers, both ranchers who rodeoed (one into his 80s), love what you did with the movie. I have told Matt I have another 20 plus Western scripts, and I hope someday, you'll do another. Best, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi, to those asking about the Hallmark channel as opposed to the Hallmark Movie Channel. I have no information on the former. I have noticed in the past year or so that the movies did appear on both, but I believe there may be some competition. Since Shadow on the Mesa was 2nd highest rated on HMC, they may not let it go for awhile. If I hear about DVDs, I'll post it on this really nice and easy site. Best, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi to all: Shadow on the Mesa (per my Direct TV) will be showing 6:00 PM April 29, 2013 and again at 6:00 AM, April 30, both on the Hallmark Movie Channel (not the regular Hallmark). It may show again after that but my TV only lists that far.

  49. Hi, Lee Martin. My mum has just watched this movie ( we are in England) and she really enjoyed it. She is wondering where the Rawlins family name inspiration came from? We are Rawlins you see, and it's not a common surname in England ( more Rawlings n Rawlinsons you see) Thanks Debs

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi, Debs, I had no idea you could watch Hallmark Movie Channel in England! Glad your mother enjoyed it. I'm afraid my script, based on my yet unpublished novel, used a different last name for Wes. The producer has a department that reviews names in scripts to avoid repetition or conflict. They chose the name Rawlins. I like their choice of Rawlins as a name very much. As for England, I had my 17 Western novels (first published here by Avalon Books) reprinted by House of Ulverscroft in large print (Linford Western Library) under Lee Martin and with several pen names because they wanted to do them rather quickly. They were one of the nicest publishers I'd ever come across. Take care and God bless, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  51. David Cass, Sr., I confess, I don't normally keep track of directors for movies in general, but with all the interaction I've read for this movie your name will stick
    :-) I agree with Lee, you did a great job with this movie! It was a great script and had great acting, but the directing is what pulled both of those things together and made it into a fantastic movie. It flowed great and this movie should become a classic. One to be watched over and over and never tire of. I know I've watched it a lot already (via DVR) and I love it each time. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just watched this movie on the Hallmark Channel for the 2nd time. The movie is great! The acting is superb. Is the movie on DVD? If not.....it NEEDS to be!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi, everyone, I'm so glad you enjoy Shadow on the Mesa and also that you appreciate David Cass, Sr.'s great direction. What we saw on the set the day we visited was not only a well oiled machine, but also dedicated actors who took on their roles with enthusiasm. We were allowed to cool off in the barn, and all the actors on set introduced themselves. They were very gracious. We also enjoyed the "dead guys" who went out and laid down in place of the actors. We learned one of these young men had a master's degree from Harvard. The weapons man was a retired police officer. It was just wonderful to watch. And we shared a really great catered lunch. Thanks to all on the set and to all of you writing to this fine web site, Lee Martin

  54. Hi, everyone, so far it's still July for the next showings of SHADOW ON THE MESA. I did learn that when the music is a little too loud, it's because of the broadcast stations, not the movie itself. When it's out on DVD, maybe next year, if not before, you'll find the music is softer and does not interfere with dialogue. Best to all, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi, everyone, I just learned that the next showing of SHADOW ON THE MESA will be on the Hallmark Movie Channel August 26 at 11:00 A.M.
    Hope everyone DVRs/ watches to keep up the very high ratings. Thanks! Best, Lee Martin

  57. Hi, thanks for the tip. Is that the complete movie? Pixl is a great channel. SHADOW ON THE MESA has just won the prestigious Wrangler Award for 2013 as the best Western television movie. This award is given by the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. Best to all, Lee Martin

  58. Hi, Lee. Thanks for responding. Congrats on the Wrangler Award! SHADOW ON THE MESA runs for 87 minutes on http://www.youtube.com/user/pixlmoviechannel so I believe it is the complete movie. There are no youtube interruptions. I can watch the movie anytime, and I enjoy jumping to my favorite scenes, especially those involving Wes and Ray. Thanks for this beautiful story!

  59. Having found this thread regarding this really good and realising it has not got to DVD stage yet has anyone heard anything yet about whether a DVD will be released. It was shown today 17 August and I watched the first half but had to attend a function so missed it and do not have recording facilties nor does Channel 5 here in England have iplayer facility for this movie. I am gutted because the other time is showed the same thing happened so I have no idea how it ends though have a few theories. Does anyone know if there will eventualy be a DVD as I have other Kevin Sorbo moves which I really love. Thanks from England

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi, to both: So glad you like the movie SHADOW ON THE MESA. I heard it plays on Channel 5 in England. I don't understand YouTube. No DVD has been ordered as yet. The movie plays here again on August 26 in the morning on the Hallmark Movie Channel. I do hope you get to see the ending. The action is great. And Baldy doesn't die (the first versions where he died caused so much ruckus, they saved him in the final). My favorite scenes are when Potluck's friend finds him dead and turns to get clobbered by Wes, and when dynamite rolls into the jail so that Art rushes to the door to get clobbered by Wes. I confess those scenes were probably arranged by the great director David Cass or the stunt men. The novel on which I based my screenplay is still being marketed. It will have more story. Thanks so much for watching the movie! Best, Lee Martin

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi, to all. A fan of SHADOW ON THE MESA informed me on another site that she found the movie on YouTube where the Pixl Channel is available for $1.99 per month and she continues to watch it there. Pixl is owned by the producers who made Shadow on the Mesa. Best, Lee Martin

It took six years to get the movie made from the first option, and a lot of hands were in the kitchen, but I'm still proud of the movie.

  74. Hi, from Lee Martin. Net, you asked about the cover of the novel SHADOW ON THE MESA. It's a real John Ford type cover with rising red rocks. It's dark on the lower part with two riders above against a bright sunrise. Really pretty. And it says, "Retribution comes with a Bullet":. Happy with what they are doing with it. Late October, it should be in print.

  79. Hi, so glad you love the movie. Not sure if my previous comment was published. I believe rights to Shadow on the Mesa music and DVD belong to Crown Media. You might try them on the Internet or try Galam Vivendi Ent. shown with their address on the DVD. Would love to know if the opening music was a flute. Would also like to know if you find the music.

  84. HI, from Lee Martin, screenwriter, SHADOW ON THE MESA. As to the chance of a sequel, the way it works is, the producer makes the movie, owns it, and licenses it to the Hallmark Movie Channel for a number of showings. But the producer must know in advance the movie is welcome at Hallmark and tries very hard to please them in order to make sure it will be accepted. If Hallmark learns there is interest in a sequel and tells the producer to get with it, it could happen, so first Hallmark has to get the word from its viewers. Their website is www.hallmarkmoviechannel.com. Thanks to all.
