from Hallmark Press Release:
Based on the popular series of books by best-selling author Debbie Macomber, "Cedar Cove" the movie serves as a back-door pilot to a potential primetime series in 2013. Family court judge Olivia Lockhart is a single mother and respected leader in Cedar Cove, Washington. She makes news when she denies the divorce petition of Cecilia and Ian Randall, deciding the young couple is still very much in love with one another and that they have not tried hard enough to make their relationship work. This gets the attention of local newspaper editor and newcomer to town Jack Griffin. As Jack and Olivia try to heal the Randall's broken relationship, it brings the two of them together in a way they never expected. Romance, mystery, and lessons of the heart are the threads that weave this tight-knit community together.
More, from Hallmark Press Release:
In "Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove," Golden Globe(R) winner Andie MacDowell plays Judge Olivia Lockhart whose Cedar Cove Municipal Court is the professional milieu and social microcosm of issues the judge will face in her own day-to-day life with family and friends. Veteran actor Dylan Neal plays Jack Griffith, the new editor of the Cedar Cove Chronicle and budding love interest for Judge Lockhart. The series is based on the bestselling book series Cedar Cove by #1 New York Times bestselling author, Debbie Macomber. In the two-hour pilot, Judge Lockhart is overjoyed to hear that her name is being put forth for appointment to a Federal judgeship in Seattle by her longtime friend, Senator Pete Raymond. Olivia asks that her family keep the news a secret. In the meantime, Jack Griffith, desperate for a meaningful news story, corners Olivia's mother who inadvertently tells the editor about everything in her daughter's life - including the possible appointment. Suddenly, Olivia (much to her chagrin) is front page news. In the courtroom, Olivia rejects Cecelia and Ian's petition for divorce, because she is convinced the young couple still loves each other. In the meantime, Olivia's feelings about daughter Justine's suitor couldn't be colder.
