Andie MacDowell starring in Hallmark's 1st series
Associated Press – NEW YORK (AP) —
Andie MacDowell will be a pioneer for the Hallmark Channel, starring in the network's first prime-time series.
Hallmark said Wednesday that MacDowell will portray municipal court Judge Olivia Lockhart in "Cedar Grove." It will start with a two-hour movie airing later this year and continue with a 13-episode series early in 2013.
The new series is based on books by author Debbie Macomber. Movie adaptations of Macomber's books have been among the top-rated programs that Hallmark has shown over the past three years.
MacDowell's movie credits include "Groundhog Day" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral."
What do you think? Is it a good choice for the Olivia Lockhart character? I've always liked Andie MacDowell and her Southern accent. I can hear her voice in those Loreal ads talking about grey hair and she says in her Southern way- "As if I ever had any!"
Anyway - I think Andie seems smart and sassy - a great character combo, if you ask me. However, I haven't read the book series - so what do you think - if you've read them or not?
