PREMIERING IN JUNE ON HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES


‘THE DANCING DETECTIVE: A DEADLY TANGO’
Filmed entirely on location in Malta
Friday, June 2 (9 p.m. ET/PT)
Starring: Lacey Chabert, Will Kemp

Sparks fly when a no-nonsense detective (Chabert) must reluctantly team up with a charismatic British dance star (Kemp) in order to solve a murder, literally one step at a time, at a stunning luxury resort in Malta!



***********************





‘AURORA TEAGARDEN MYSTERIES: SOMETHING NEW’
Friday, June 9 (9 p.m. ET/PT)
Starring: Skyler Samuels, Evan Roderick, Marilu Henner

Aurora Teagarden (Samuels) is back home in Lawrenceton post-college near her mother, Aida (Henner). Working as a teacher’s assistant in a crime fiction class, Aurora is struggling to settle on a thesis for her post-graduate degree. To support her schooling and life, Aurora also waitresses at the local diner at night, where she shares her love of researching true crime with her friend Sally and police officer Arthur (Roderick). When Sally’s fiancรฉ doesn’t show up at their wedding rehearsal, Maid of Honor Aurora gets Arthur to help her search for him. When they discover a body, everyone assumes it is Sally’s tardy groom, but when it turns out to be someone else, Sally’s fiancรฉ becomes the main suspect.



My Quick Take:

It's nice to see familiar actresses Torrey DeVitto, Becca Tobin, Stephanie Bennett, and Eva Bourne starring in the 4 all-new June Wedding movies. I think of the four, ‘THE WEDDING CONTRACT’ sounds the most intriguing to me, thus far, but we'll see.

As for mysteries, I'll be skipping the new Aurora Teagarden. It's not possible to make those successful, in my mind, without Candace Cameron Bure. No one can take her place.

I will, of course, be most delighted to check out the all-new ‘THE DANCING DETECTIVE: A DEADLY TANGO’ starring Lacey Chabert and Will Kemp, who have been magical on screen together in Love, Romance, and Chocolate and Christmas Waltz. I can only imagine they will be wonderful in this new mystery, as well.

Be sure to note, the new mysteries now premiere on Friday night.

  1. June Weddings is back on Hallmark in 2023 since February 2015–2019 (June Weddings

    The June Wedding movies look pretty good. Just hope they are family friendly! Like you Net, I will be skipping Aurora Teagarden. Can't do that without Candace! As for The Dancing Detective I will have to think on that one. I think it will be good, but after what HMM did to Mystery 101 not sure I can get involved in another mystery with them. Plus the fact they canceled the Crossword Mysteries with Lacy and are now putting her in another one. Can't figure these people out! I hope GAF will start doing mysteries!!

  3. Oh wow. Hallmark actually deciding to bring back June Weddings with movies that all sound like they have forced diversity included in all of them. PASS!!

    Those 2 mysteries? MAJOR PASS!! 1, I absolutely hate what Hallmark has unfairly done to all their popular mystery franchises. 2, I'd rather see Lacey and Will do that Christmas Waltz follow up. 3, Candace is the only one who can play Roe! Anyone else trying to is an absolute disgrace and insult to every fan who loved that franchise!!

  4. Hallmark cancelled Mystery 101 and does a new mystery movie for Lacy that is not Crossword mysteries. To top it up they bring back Aurora Teagarden movie without Candace because she is with GAC. What is Hallmark doing? I will not be watching any of it.

  5. I am surprised to see Eva Bourne here since she missed last season of When Calls the Heart, but happy to see her star in her own movie. I loved her as Jennifer Shannon's daughter, Hannah as well as Clara.

    I know I said I was going to stick to the original mysteries, but after seeing Lacey and Will... I just have to try it!!!

    Still have mixed feelings over Aurora(fake) Teagarden. A big part of me says, "That's just wrong," but I can't help but be curious. I think I'll wait until I see reviews.

    1. I'm so excited to read about The Dancing Detective: A Deadly Tango with Lacy and Will!

  6. My main reaction on first read was - good grief doesn't Will Kemp look old (the first picture)!

    I'll certainly give The Dancing Detective a watch, Lacey and Will do have great chemistry together.

    The whole Paris Christmas Waltz scenario is shrouded in mystery - my feeling now is that it will only have a loose connection with the original movie and neither Lacey nor Will will actually be in it - we'll see.

    The four June Weddings movies could be either a triumph or a disaster - interesting that Hallmark are using what I would call mostly (until now) "B"- list actors most of whom I know.

    Wedding Season with Stephanie Bennett and Casey Deirdrick looks the most interesting to me - it might be a straightforward good old Rom.Com - I've liked both these actors in previous movies they've done.

    The leads are fine in Love's Greek To Me - it depends on the movie's plot.

    Make Me A Match is a case of wait and see.

    I'm a big fan of Jake Epstein and have liked Becca Tobin previously but I've never really gotten into these movies with meddling mothers - another wait and see.

    Of course the big question now is just how family friendly these movies are and for me personally although there is no mention of it whether any of these leads will have been previously married.

    While I couldn't say I was the biggest fan of Aurora I did watch and like them but a prequel? - no, I can't say that appeals to me - it seems a dodgy move by Hallmark.

    1. I don't care for suspense/murder mysteries, unless they have favorite actor(s) of mine in them, but a prequel? It seems to me that they are trying a last ditch effort to get Aurora Teagarden going again. Best wishes to them.

  7. Jake Epstein and Becca Tobin are the WORST pairing ever. I would have never put them together as a pairing. They're just not going to make a believable couple. Becca would match better with someone like Ryan Rottman in Sister Of The Bride or Niall Matter in Love At First Dance or Kevin McGarry in A Song For Christmas. For me, those were all good pairings. I dont feel like Becca and Jake will have chemistry whatsoever. If you look at the pictures of the two of them together you can just tell they dont have any. Jake would have even better paired with Eva Bourne more than Becca. So super bummed about this pairing.

  8. That’s interesting they are bringing June Weddings back. Not sure why they’ve never been able to figure anything out for May, between Mothers Day, graduations, Memorial Day, etc… there’s surely some title that would fit.

    June Weddings was always the best suited title for the month of June. Last year it was called Summer Nights, and it’s not really Summer til the end of June and then it flips to Christmas in July about a week later. Countdown to Summer was okay. Not sure why they didn’t keep that. CJ

  9. Re Aurora Teagarden I’m more interested in the background to Sally’s character. Aside from a fix up we’ve never seen her dating anyone throughout the series.

  11. Hello All.
    Good comments and info.

    Sorry I am underwhelmed with the movies presented. CCB is Aurora and can not be replaced. I have little faith in Hallmark delivering family-friendly movies so I am even apprehensive about the Lacy & Will movie.

    GAF please develop some mystery movies.

  13. My wife and I have all but given up on Hallmark. The channel we used to watch the most we rarely watch anymore. They have taken away so many of the good mystery movies. And going woke sure didn't help them any. Plus it seems as though they are not releasing very many movies on dvd anymore. Been waiting for some time now for Return to Christmas Creek, Christmas Bow, Love in Paradise and others. Haven't seen any of last years Christmas movies out yet. Yes it used to be our favorite channel, but now we've all but given up on them. Guess they have chosen the wide road.

    1. Thank you for sharing your thoughts; I completely understand how you both feel about Hallmark. It is hard to navigate watching the channel these days. If you watch something older that you know you've enjoyed previously, you have to always be aware of what will be on next. We used to leave our TV turned there often throughout the day, but we no longer do that.

      The only Christmas movies released from last year, so far, are the ones from Christmas in July in a 6-film collection. Unfortunately, one of them contains woke content.

      Hopefully, more Christmas movies will eventually be released on DVD individually.

      Delete
    2. You haven't seen any Hallmark Christmas movies that premiered Christmas 2022 out on DVD yet because they don't come out until this October/November. The Hallmark Christmas movies from the year before always get released the following October and November after they premiere the Christmas before. They've done that for years. Amazon always uploads the movies for pre order 3 months before they come out on DVD so the 2022 Hallmark Christmas movies that come out in October will be uploaded for pre order on Amazon in July and the movies that come out in November will show up on Amazon in August.

  14. June Weddings were never my favorite. but good to see Hallmark is going back to some traditions.

    I dont watch any new mysteries, so wont watch any of these. I am sorry but Dancing Detective looks straight up stupid. We had perfectly great mysteries before Wonya took over, but Dancing Detective just looks plain stupid.

    Not sure how young aurora is, but she didnt know Arthur that long in the books. And they didnt date that long either.

    Only good thing may be that HOPEFULLY, Christmas movies start in June on HMM. But likely it will only be for a week on HMM and likely they will be all new movies so I likely won't be happy. More of the old movies will be pushed out for new, woke movies.

  15. I’m watching Murder, She Wrote when I notice The Jane Mysteries: Inheritance Lost will air on HMM on May, 12, 2923 instead Sunday, May 14, 2023


    No wonder why Hallmark didn’t add Jane’s last name as in Jane DeSilvia Mysteries: Inheritance Lost

    Net, Can you tell Hallmark to drop the & add Jane’s last name is DeSilvia

    Jane DeSilvia Mysteries: Inheritance Lost just like, Emma Fielding Mysteries , Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, Ruby Herring Mysteries, & Hannah Swensen Mysteries

    1. Thank you for mentioning this. When they first shared the new June mysteries would premiere on Friday nights, the new May mysteries were still scheduled for Saturdays, so this must be recent change for May, as well. It's makes one wonder if the different premiere night is an attempt for higher ratings; although, I've heard Friday nights are notoriously difficult to reach a high number of viewers.

      Should be interesting to see how their ratings do with this change. It may be hard for viewers to get used to the idea of new mysteries on Friday nights.

    2. And, I like the idea of using the full name in the title, too, but I doubt they would change it again.

  17. It looks like Christmas is only 1 week for HMM and starts on Sat 6/24 and Sat and Sun the festivities start at 11 am and end 11p, and then mon thru fri, its only 7p to 11p. Wish it was for longer. Not many older movies, but they did add back Northpole Open for Christmas with Lori Laughlin.

    1. Sabrina, Yay! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at HMM!!! I love seeing the Christmas movies in their Movie Section again!

      I hadn't caught the addition of Northpole: Open for Christmas with Lori. So glad you mentioned it! That will be fun to see that movie again. I have it on DVD, but haven't watched it for awhile.

      Wonder if it's too soon to add them all to the Christmas schedule? ...or if there will be several changes or additions?

      Thank you for sharing the exciting news! :)

    2. Net, same thing GAFAM - Christmas in July starts in June just before new Christmas in July movies. Last year Christmas movies

    3. I would say, go ahead and add them, Net. We all are aware that, with Hallmark, changes are inevitable! But it gives us a starting point.
