Press Release via Hallmark:

HALLMARK CHANNEL GREENLIGHTS THIRD SEASON OF ITS HIT SERIES
‘CHESAPEAKE SHORES’
Chesapeake Shores Continues to be One of The Most Watched
Original Series in Hallmark Channel History

 

PASADENA, CA – January 13, 2018 – Hallmark Channel announces it has renewed the network’s hit, original series “Chesapeake Shores” for a third season. Airing on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ETPT, “Chesapeake Shores” was one of Hallmark Channel’s most-watched original series. Production on 10 episodes for season three is scheduled to commence this year for a season three premiere Summer 2018. The announcement was made today as part of Crown Media Family Networks’ TV Critics Association Winter Press Tour.

“Viewers have fallen in love with the heartfelt and compelling storylines as each character navigates the complexities of life, love and choices,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “We look forward to continuing and further exploring the multi-generational family journeys that people of all ages can enjoy and relate to, which makes ‘Chesapeake Shores’ a fitting series for our brand and the quality, family entertainment we provide.”

Based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods, the series stars Jesse Metcalfe (“Dallas”), Meghan Ory (“Once pon a Time”), Golden Globe® nominee Treat Williams (“Everwood,” Hair ), Academy Award® nominee Diane Ladd ( Wild a t Heart ), Barbara Niven (“Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”), Laci J. Mailey (“Falling Skies”), Emilie Ullerup (“Sanctuary”), Brendan Penny (“Motive”) and Andrew Francis (“Final Destination ”). Gregory Harrison (“One Tree Hill”), Victor Webster and Jerry Trimble guest starred in season two.

The multi-generational family drama “Chesapeake Shores” follows Abby O’Brien (Ory), a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to twin daughters, as she adjusts to life back in her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. Abby now balances a budding relationship with her former high school sweetheart, Trace (Metcalfe), working for a firm that does business with her uncompromising father Mick (Williams) and raising two young daughters. Returning to her hometown means engaging in the lives of her siblings: Jess (Mailey) a free-spirit trying to succeed as a bed and breakfast owner; Bree (Ullerup), a playwright who buys a bookstore in Chesapeake Shores after moving back home from Chicago; Kevin (Penny), a soldier adjusting to civilian life and new romance; and Connor (Francis), a new lawyer establishing his professional career. Having returned to Chesapeake Shores shortly after Abby, the O’Brien’s once-estranged mother Megan (Niven) strives to reestablish relationships with Abby and her siblings, though the O’Brien clan primarily looks to its wise grandmother Nell (Ladd) for guidance.

TCA WINTER 2018 - ALEXA PENAVEGA and CARLOS PENAVEGA to develop NEW MYSTERY MOVIE FOR HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES!!!

Press Release via Hallmark:

ALEXA PENAVEGA AND CARLOS PENAVEGA IN DEVELOPMENT WITH NEW MYSTERY MOVIE FOR HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES
Alexa PenaVega and Carlos PenaVega to Star in Their First Mystery Movie on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries


PASADENA, CA – January 13, 2018 – Hallmark Movies & Mysteries has greenlit development for a new mystery movie, starring Alexa PenaVega and Carlos PenaVega. The new mystery is written by Walter Klenhard, who also penned a number of movies from the “Garage Sale Mystery” franchise. The announcement was made today as part of Crown Media Family Networks’ TV Critics Association Winter Press Tour.

“We have been fortunate enough to work with the talented Alexa and Carlos PenaVega on some of our most successful projects,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “Bringing them together coupled with the mystery prose of Walter Klenhard is sure to be one of the next hit mysteries for the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries audience.”

Alexa’s character owns a photo studio where she creates the most beautiful portraits for engagements, business owners, real estate brokers, etc. in a formal studio setting. In addition to photography, she also conducts videography. Interestingly enough, mysteries have a way of finding her and she has a strong intuition and knack of solving them. Sometimes the mystery comes through the doors of the shop, sometimes it might be something she sees while shooting on-assignment, and sometimes she’ll spot something at a crime scene that everybody missed. Alexa’s character also uses her videography skills to start a part-time job – she gets a police scanner and begins to take the store van to breaking stories – could be a fire, could be an accident or even a murder. If her footage is good, she tries to sell it to local news stations for broadcast. While doing this, she finds herself running into Carlos’ character, who is a detective for the local police force, where they keep spotting each other at crime scenes. What Carlos doesn’t know is that Alexa’s character is a natural-born Sherlock Holmes. She has a laser-like focus that catches details others miss and a mind that can undo the most complicated puzzles. The more he lets her into his crime-solving world, the more unstoppable this crime-solving duo becomes.
