Emmy® Award winner Vanessa Marcil (“General Hospital,” “The Nanny Express”) and James Denton (“Desperate Housewives,” "Grace Unplugged") star in the romantic tropical escape, shot on location in Puerto Rico, and follows the story of a driven executive whose disastrous business trip to a beautiful island turns into an unexpected new beginning.

Tess Nelson (Marcil) is a poised and confident human resources executive who is aiming for a well-deserved promotion.  But when her boss informs her she’s being laid off instead, Tess is furious and worried about letting down her demanding mother, Mona (Cindy Pickett).  Determined to use a business trip to an HR convention in Puerto Rico to score a new job, she is discouraged when the trip is a disaster from the start, and an approaching hurricane makes it impossible to fly home.  But after bumping into a handsome fellow traveler, Carter (Denton), Tess opens up to the possibilities beyond her desk job, and the couple’s adventures on the island bring them closer while the hurricane rolls in.  With help from a fearless and friendly local, Stella (Gladys Rodríguez), Carter and Tess take shelter, and Tess sees taking an unanticipated risk could lead her to a happiness she never dreamed of, and a love that goes beyond a week in paradise.

In the Season 2 finale, Olivia is determined to find out why her relationship with Jack suddenly feels so distant, while Justine attempts to smooth things over with Seth but ends up only making things much worse.

Sending you news on "Signed, Sealed, Delivered"!

The first season of Signed, Sealed, Delivered has come now to an emotional, intriguing, 'what will happen next?' end… but please don’t fret, I will give you a sliver of light...

I revealed to you last week that there will be a Signed, Sealed, Delivered Christmas Movie and now we also know when it will air on the Hallmark Channel – December 4th! *Updated now to November 23rd on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

I am personally so grateful for this news, and excited to see where the story will go following the finale episode. Shane watched as Oliver mailed that mysterious letter to Holly, but did it say – “I miss you”, “Come home”, or “Goodbye”. Oh, November 23rd seems like an awfully long time to wait. Guess that’s why they call it “snail mail”.

Thank you, again, Hallmark Channel for giving us this wonderful series from the brilliant writing talent of Martha Williamson. And, to whoever casted these diverse fabulous characters – you are incredible! I could never imagine anyone else as Oliver, Shane, Rita, and Norman. Eric Mabius, Kristin Booth, Crystal Lowe, and Geoff Gustafson are simply amazing! Thank you to the creators, cast, crew, and guest stars, too! I loved every minute!

If I get word on anything else, I'll be sure to keep you all "posted"!

Don't miss the last Delivery of Hallmark Channel's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" this Weekend!

Dear Signed, Sealed, Delivered fans,
Be sure to watch the First Season Finale Episode this weekend
on the Hallmark Channel, Sunday Night, June 22, 2014!

Eric Mabius as Oliver O'Toole,
Kristin Booth as Shane McInerney,
Crystal Lowe as Rita Haywith, 
"Miss Special Delivery"
Geoff Gustafson as Norman Dorman,

In this finale episode titled "A Hope and A Future," (via Hallmark) -- Norman meets a family member, potrayed by "Special Guest Star" Carol Burnett, who changes his life as the Postables make a delivery that transforms a family.

This will conclude the first season of this amazing Television series that has captivated the hearts and minds of so many viewers.

The next question, of course, is... "will there be a Season 2 of Signed, Sealed, Delivered"? I certainly hope so! I have been completely taken week after week with the intricate storylines weaved together by the wonderful screenwriter Martha Williamson, pictured here (below) with the equally wonderful cast.

Until we do receive word (hopefully!) on a Second Season, we have learned some wonderful news....

About a month or so ago I heard a rumor there might be something in the works and I just recently confirmed there will be a "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" Christmas Movie coming this Christmas Season to the Hallmark Channel! They will actually be filming it shortly.

So.... enjoy the Finale Episode this Sunday evening and we'll look forward together to the next scheduled delivery of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" this Christmas - that will surely give us all new mysteries & surprises!

Thank You to...
the Hallmark Channel, Creators, Producers, Cast, and Crew
for a truly Wonderful, Heartwarming, and most definitely Inspiring
First Season!
Until next time...
Yours Sincerely and Truly, Net

Disney Channel Original Movie: "Zapped"



Network: Disney Channel

Original Air Date: June 27, 2014


Zendaya ... Zoey Stevens
Chanelle Peloso ... Rachel Todds
Spencer Boldman ... Jackson Kale
Emilia McCarthy ... Taylor Dean
Adam DiMarco ... Adam Thompson


Synopsis via Wikipedia:

Zoey Stevens is a 17-year-old high school student who excels in dancing and academics. She has difficulties when she changes schools, including adapting to its inept dance squad, as well as her new stepfather and stepbrothers at home. A dog training app she downloads for her phone changes things when it lets her give commands to boys.

Synopsis via Disney:

Based on the popular book "Boys are Dogs" by Leslie Margolis, "Zapped" follows Zoey Stevens, a skilled dancer and straight-A student who is having a hard time adjusting to her new life once her mom remarries. Now she has to live with three messy and rambunctious step-brothers, a loud step-dad and an unruly dog. The Boys at school seem even worse, particularly the group of misfits who make up the JV dance squad that she is forced to join. Nothing seems to be going right for the savvy teen, until she discovers the dog training app on her smartphone can now somehow control boys. Convinced life would be better if the boys around her would change, Zoey uses her newfound power to command the boys in her life to behave better, all except Jackson Kale - the one guy at school who stands apart from everyone else. Now Zoey finds herself asking if the app is really the answer to fixing her family life, managing the boys in school and making her dance crew the best.
