In other Candace movie news... she just recently finished filming the third movie in the Aurora Mystery series... "3 Bedrooms 1 Corpse: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery"! And a fourth one "The Julius House" is in the works next! (*Thanks so much for the movie info H.R. Jafael!)

Candace Cameron Bure shared this on-set pic below via Instagram:

It's great to see the usual cast back for this new Aurora movie: "3 Bedrooms 1 Corpse", including Marilu Henner, but there's also a new face pictured here on the left! That is actor Yannick Beeson, best known from two mystery series, "Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye" and "Murdoch Mysteries". Interesting, huh!?!?!

And, one more exciting Candace Cameron Bure Movie Reveal... (*Special thanks to Shirley S. for finding and sharing this news!)

  1. What a wonderful way to start off the weekend by saying, "Happy Birthday" Net, Doris, Jennie, Debbie and Candace!! May the Lord bless all of you and grant your inner most desires!! Love, Peace, Joy, Ladies!!

  2. Happy Birthday Net!!! I don't really want to correct you, but is name is Yannick Bisson. He also played a wonderful show called Sue Thomas, F.B. EYE. It came out in the early 2000's and was great family show. My entire family loves it and it is one of the only shows that we all agree on. (Meaning that we all like it and don't mind watching it over and over.)

  3. Sorry about adding the Sue comment I read the post quickly which I have a bad habit of doing sometimes and totally missed that you had Sue there. The rest of the comment is accurate though, my entire family does love the show.

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! Hope you enjoy a wonderful birthday.

    Yay for an Aurora DVD too - oh, and I spotted My Boyfriends Dogs coming to DVD too. :)

  5. Happy Birthday, Net! Hope you have a wonderful day! Thank you for all you do to keep us updated on these great movies.

  6. Happy Birthday Net!! Thank for always sharing yourself with us, as well as the new movies and shows!!

  7. Happy Birthday Net!!!!

  8. Happy Birthday! My kitty Joy, a long haired orange tabby cat will celebrate her 4th birthday on Sunday April 3rd too.

  9. Happy Birthday, Net! I hope you get to spend a wonderful day with your family and that they shower you with much love (and maybe even a few gifts)!

  10. I wish another channel besides TCM would have the Doris Day movies. I do not get that channel. Happy Birthday.

  11. What a fab posting today! Happy Birthday girl, and leave it to you to also include not one, but two new tidbits of Hallmark movie information, "A Time to Dance" casting, which I'm glad to see is officially being made after all and "A Bone to Pick: An Aurora Teagarden Mystery" new to DVD. Hope this means we can expect more Hallmark Movies & Mysteries originals to come on DVD.

    Thankx for all the movie info! (I'm such a broken record, but I always mean it!) Happy Birthday Net!!!

    I think I'll pop in an old Doris Day movie and think of you!

  12. Happy Birthday

  13. Oh my goodness... such heartfelt, beautiful Birthday Messages! You may not know it, but to me, you are all a precious gift! :) Thank You ALL so much... from my heart to Yours!!!

  14. Happy Birthday Net! My son's birthday happens to be April 2nd, so we too have been celebrating a birthday this weekend! Also, I love Yannick Bisson as William Murdoch in the Murdoch Mysteries series; I have watched that show from the original TV movies, and have seen every episode. It's one of my favorite shows with some fascinating characters, though it does sometimes show autopsies and violence, so you might want to hold off on young kids watching it with you. William Murdoch is, I think, a very worthy role-model however, so parents will have to balance that out for themselves.

  15. Happy Birthday, Net!

    Thanks for the heads up for the Aurora Teagarden mystery DVD being out!

  16. Happy Birthday! Thanks for all the great information you always give us... Enjoy your day!!! Virginia

  17. The annoying background music really bothers me, and anyone with a hearing aid would not be able to watch, I love the movie channel, but this is so annoying, I can hardly watch it anymore!
