Cameron Mathison : 'Murder She Baked'

"Hallmark Movies & Mysteries announces its latest mystery movie series debut, “Murder, She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery,” based on the Hannah Swensen Mystery Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Joanne Fluke.

The film centers on free spirit Hannah Swensen, an expert baker who becomes a culinary detective when her shop, the Cookie Jar, becomes the scene of a crime, just as she is caught in a romantic mystery of her own." (via Hallmark Press Release)

Co-starring with Cameron Mathison in this all new "mouthwatering" mystery movie are Alison Sweeney (“Second Chances”), Barbara Niven (“Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”), and Gabriel Hogan (Christmas at Cartwrights).

Movie fans will certainly recognize actor Cameron Mathison from his Hallmark family films – ‘Along Came a Nanny ’, ‘My Gal Sunday’, ‘Window Wonderland’, and ‘The Christmas Ornament’.

TV viewers can look forward to seeing Mathison, in his new role as Detective Mike Kingston in the all new Mystery Movie Series ‘Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery’, a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original World Premiere Saturday, May 2, 2015 (9pm ET/PT, 8C).


First of all, thank you, Cameron Mathison, for joining me today, for a chat on “It’s a Wonderful Movie” on your upcoming Hallmark Movie project, ‘Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery’. I must say it sounds deliciously suspenseful and I appreciate you giving us all an insight into this all new mystery movie!

It's a Wonderful Movie: Hallmark has created many new Mystery Movie projects, with some well-known actors & actresses, including Eric Mabius, Lori Loughlin, Candace Cameron Bure, Dylan Neal, and Brooke Burns. How amazing is it for you to be a part of this fresh venture they call “Hallmark Mystery Wheel”?

Cameron Mathison: It's just fantastic. The fact that each installment is its own stand alone movie, yet ties into the "wheel" of movies is so unique. Great to really dig your teeth into a full movie script, in contrast with an episode in a TV series. Really really fun:)

It's a Wonderful Movie: Oh, it does sound fun!

Could you tell us a little about your character, Detective Mike Kingston, in ‘Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery’?

Cameron Mathison and Alison Sweeney
in "Murder She Baked"
Cameron Mathison: He is the big city detective that comes to the sleepy town in Minnesota to solve some mysterious goings on. Personally he is in need of some changes in his life, as his wife recently passed away. A new town, a new start for detective Mike. He definitely has a bit of the big city attitude, but Hannah quickly breaks that down:)

It's a Wonderful Movie: Hmmm, that sounds quite interesting.

What was it like working with Alison Sweeney, in this all new mystery series? Will there be a second ‘Murder She Baked’ movie, I understand it may become a potential on-going series…?

Cameron Mathison: Ali is so fantastic. We had crossed paths in the Daytime world, but never worked together. She is funny, smart, insightful, hard working and very very talented. Such a joy to work with. Man... I think I have a busy life, then I look at her:)

Yes, there will be several murder she baked movies!! Woo hoo!

It's a Wonderful Movie: Yay! That's great viewers can watch the first movie and look forward to more!

What does it mean to you – to create Hallmark movies that families can watch together?

"The Christmas Ornament"
Cameron Mathison: That is one of the best parts of working with Hallmark. Well, there are many great aspects of working with Hallmark, but I LOVE the fact that my kids can watch my movies and love them. One of my Hallmark movies, The Christmas Ornament is their second all time favorite Christmas movie. Second only to Elf. Not bad right?

It's a Wonderful Movie: That is so sweet! Many viewers (myself and my family, included!) enjoy your portrayal of Tim, the Christmas Tree shop owner in Hallmark's 'The Christmas Ornament', and that is so special, your kids love your movie, too!

By the way, speaking of something children typically love... Since your new movie is a "Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery", I just have to ask, what is your favorite cookie?

Cameron Mathison: nothing like a freshly baked peanut butter cookie


And, on that yummy note...

Thank you so much, Cameron Mathison, for taking the time to do this interview!

Congratulations on your home improvement shows ‘Game of Homes’ and ‘Cameron's House Rules’, as well as your hosting position at Entertainment Tonight and, of course, your ongoing detective role in upcoming 'Murder She Baked' mysteries!

Millions of TV viewers appreciate your Hallmark family movies – and many viewers (hopefully millions more!) will look forward to seeing you in ‘Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery’, premiering Saturday May 2, 2015 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

It has truly been a real treat for me and all my followers to hear from you!

God Bless!

  1. Awesome interview, Net! I love all those Cameron Mathison movies! Why haven't I heard of those building shows?

    1. Thank you! As for the Cameron Mathison "home improvement" shows, "Game of Homes" airs in Canada on the W Network and "Cameron's House Rules" is an exclusive web series. I haven't seen them, but I did see a commercial preview for Game of Homes and if anyone enjoys DIY shows, they would surely enjoy this one. I hope a station picks it up in the U.S.!

  2. This is great! I enjoyed reading it!

  3. You were right, he is so friendly. He's also like able and dreamy! ;) Will this air during or after WCTH on Saturday night?

    1. The next episode of When Calls the Heart will air at 8PM/7c. on the Hallmark Channel, Murder She Baked will air at 9PM/8c. on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and then an encore episode of When Calls the Heart will air at 11PM/10c. on the Hallmark Channel. So basically, the new movie is sandwiched between the new When Calls the Heart! You just have to turn the channel!
