UPDATE via Hallmark Press Release:
Starring Katie Findlay, Wyatt Nash, Ted McGinley and Faith Ford
Based On The Book By #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Kingsbury, Production Underway on Part Two, Set to Debut Holiday 2016.
STUDIO CITY, CA - October 1, 2015 -- Hallmark Channel debuts the most anticipated novel adaptation of the season, Karen Kingsbury's The Bridge, based on New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury's beloved novel. The first installment of the contemporary romance debuts this December as part of Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas, with part two commencing production this week in Vancouver for an anticipated holiday 2016 debut. The Hallmark Channel original world premiere stars Katie Findlay ("How to Get Away with Murder"), Wyatt Nash ("Petals on the Wind"), Ted McGinley ("Hope and Faith") and Faith Ford ("Murphy Brown"). Karen

Kingsbury's The Bridge is the sweeping tale of Molly Callens (Findlay) and Ryan Kelly (Nash), two young students who share a profound friendship their first semester in college, a time that becomes the defining moment of their lives. At their favorite bookstore and coffee shop, The Bridge, they spend countless hours studying and inspiring the other to dream their 10-year goal. They bond with the owners of The Bridge, Charlie (McGinley) and Donna Barton (Ford), a couple who designed the bookstore as a place where people can connect and be part of an extended family. Can Molly and Ryan's unspoken love and future dreams survive the expectations of others as to what their lives should ultimately be?

"Karen Kingsbury's story of second chances has touched millions of people, illustrating the power of love, forgiveness and grace," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "The characters of 'The Bridge' are confronted with the same hard choices many people face daily, and they overcome the obstacles with empathy and love, an inspiring message this holiday season."

Karen Kingsbury is a #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, earning her the distinction of America's favorite inspirational novelist. With nearly 25 million copies of her award-winning books in print, Kingsbury's stories have resonated with readers worldwide. Her last dozen titles have hit #1 on national lists, including her recent Redemption series featuring Kingsbury's most unforgettable characters. Her novel The Bridge released in 2012 and debuted on the New York Times Bestsellers list. It has sold over 300,000 copies since the time of its release and is published by Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. Kingsbury is also a public speaker, reaching more than 100,000 women annually through various national events. Kingsbury lives in Nashville with her husband, Don, and has five sons, three of whom were adopted from Haiti, and an only daughter, Kelsey, an actress. She is represented by Rick Christian, President of Alive Literary Agency in Colorado Springs.

The screenplay for Karen Kingsbury's The Bridge is written by Jamie Pachino ("Franklin & Bash") and directed by Mike Rohl ("When Calls the Heart," "Smallville"). Emmy(R)-winning Executive Producers, reuniting their partnership after the success of "Door To Door" and "Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story," Everywhere Studios' Dan Angel ("Christmas In Canaan," "Goosebumps," "The Haunting Hour") and David Rosemont (2013's "Bonnie and Clyde," "The Gabby Douglas Story") have partnered with Kim Arnott, President of Vancouver-based Two 4 the Money Media and Fernando Szew, CEO of MarVista Entertainment, for the two-part movie.

CHESAPEAKE SHORES - a Hallmark Channel Summer Television Series



Featuring 'Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove' Star
Barbara Niven
Based on the Novels by New York Times Bestselling Author
Sherryl Woods

"Chesapeake Shores" To Become A Series of Movies
for Hallmark Channel Debuting in 2016

STUDIO CITY, CA -- September 24, 2015 -- Hallmark Channel announces the start of production on "Chesapeake Shores," a series of Hallmark Channel original movies debuting on the network in 2016. The film is based on the novels of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods. Jesse Metcalfe ("Dallas," "Desperate Housewives") stars alongside Meghan Ory ("Once Upon A Time"), Golden Globe(R) nominated actor Treat Williams ("Everwood," "Hair"), Academy Award(R) nominee Diane Ladd ("Wild At Heart") and Barbara Niven ("Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove") in this epic, multi-generational family drama.

"It is a true honor to bring to life Sherry Woods' captivating novel of family and forgiveness," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "This amazing, all-star cast will expertly portray Woods' emotional, poignant and romantically woven story. We know our audience will be as taken and swept away by 'Chesapeake Shores' as we are."

Ory portrays Abby O'Brien - a high-powered career woman, divorcee and mother to two young daughters. After years away from her family, she takes a trip from New York City to her hometown of Chesapeake Shores. The visit brings her face to face with her past, including her high school sweetheart Trace (Metcalfe), her undemonstrative father Mick (Williams), her daring sister Jess, and her beloved grandmother Nell. This trip also makes Abby notice the toll her career has taken on her ability to be a hands-on mother to her daughters. As she spends more time in her charming hometown, Abby begins to consider a permanent move to the town she once called home -- Chesapeake Shores.

Metcalfe portrays Trace Riley, a handsome musician who was Abby's first love. After high school, Abby abruptly left Trace and Chesapeake Shores without warning, an action he has never forgiven her for. Trace eventually follows his dreams to become a musician, only to return to Chesapeake Shores years later and find that Abby, too, is back in their hometown. The two remember what they once had, sparking deep and unresolved emotions.

Williams portrays Mick O'Brien, the commanding patriarch of the O'Brien clan. Mick's wife walked out on him years ago, leaving him a single father working hard to provide for his family. Unfortunately his work took precedent, which made him emotionally unavailable to his children. When his daughter Abby returns home, it marks a new beginning for Mick and Abby as they work to reconnect and repair their strained relationship.

Ladd portrays Nell O'Brien, the beloved matriarch of the O'Brien clan and Mick's mother. She is a warm, maternal and wise woman -- with a lovely Irish lilt - who took over rearing of the O'Brien brood when her son's wife, Megan, abandons the family. Through the decades, she is the glue that keeps the fractious, fractured family together.

Niven portrays Megan, Mick O'Brien's estranged wife.

Dan Paulson is the executive producer. Martin Wood is the director and executive producer. Vicki Sotheran and Greg Malcolm are the producers. Nancey Silvers is the writer and executive producer, based on the books by Sherryl Woods, who also serves as an executive producer.

------------------ END of PRESS RELEASE ------------------
My thoughts... This is wonderful casting news! I'm delighted to see Hallmark bringing Treat Williams back in this series. Williams co-starred with Patricia Heaton in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "Front of the Class". He is such a great actor (liked him in Everwood) and I can't wait to see him in "Chesapeake Shores", alongside Jesse Metcalfe, who was fantastic in the Hallmark romantic comedy, "A Country Wedding". It's also a delight to see actress Barbara Niven in this - she's such an effervescent, cheerful character in Cedar Cove, and Diane Ladd, who is a lovely, veteran actress. Two more actresses you may recognize from previous Hallmark movies are also starring in this series - Meghan Ory (The Memory Book) and Laci J. Mailey ("Signed, Sealed, Delivered Premiere Movie"). Thank you Hallmark for continuing to bring fascinating movies and series to our TVs!

Both Actresses will be on the Hallmark Channel lifestyle show Home & Family to promote their upcoming Hallmark movies!

First... Kellie Martin ("The Christmas Ornament", "So You Said Yes") will appear on Home & Family's Thursday morning show, September 24th, at 10am/9c. to promote her new original movie "Hello, It's Me", which will air, for the first time, Sunday night at 9pm/8c on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. (The Home & Family's show repeats the next day at 12noon/11c.)

Kellie Martin in "Hello, It's Me"

*UPDATE: (September 24th, 2015 @ 10:30AM) - Kellie Martin was, as expected, the first guest today on Home & Family and she announced that she and her husband Keith, along with their nine year old daughter Maggie, are welcoming a new baby girl into their family! Kellie is expecting! She is 5 months along now and looks wonderful! You can see below!

Here's a couple pictures from Kellie's appearance:

Could Alison also mention her upcoming Christmas movie, "Murder She Baked: A Plum Pudding Mystery"? Possibly. She may. But, I'm sure the focus will be mainly on "Love on the Air", this time... and perhaps she'll be back sometime within the Christmas season to promote it, as well!
