Crown Media Family Networks recently announced that the Hallmark Channel’s original weekly scripted series, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, created and executive produced by Martha Williamson (executive producer of “Touched By An Angel”), will move to sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as a movie franchise consisting of a series of two-hour original films. The highly anticipated first movie in the franchise, Signed, Sealed, Delivered For Christmas, debuts this Sunday, November 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, 8 p.m. CT on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries with three more slated for 2015.
Signed, Sealed, Delivered For Christmas is a fresh reminder of classic Christmas movies in the tradition of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Miracle on 34th Street” – asking deep questions and finding joyful answers that reflect the miracle of Christmas. Williamson’s laugh-while-you-cry movie is being enthusiastically received in screenings across the country and applauded for unapologetically rejoicing in the true meaning of Christmas.
Jordan (special guest star Rob Estes) tells Oliver the story of the fourth wiseman:
“When Bill Abbott and Michelle Vicary asked if I can evolve the Signed, Sealed, Delivered franchise into a series of movies for the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, I was honored to continue the Hallmark tradition of quality family movies,” said series creator and executive producer Martha Williamson. “At the heart of Signed, Sealed, Delivered is Oliver, a modern day gentleman with old world values played brilliantly by Eric Mabius. He and his wonderful team of postal detectives will continue to surprise us and sometimes make us laugh as they work to solve mysteries behind letters, even mysteries of life.”
“We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Martha Williamson and to bring her brand of rich and poignant stories to viewers on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries,” said Michelle Vicary, executive vice president, programming and network publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “At their core, the narratives on Signed, Sealed, Delivered revolve around mystery and suspense, with compelling characters and dramatic storylines that will be enhanced by an extended format.”
Signed, Sealed, Delivered is a comedic drama that follows the lives of a group of postal workers who transform themselves into an untraditional team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow on time.
Returning as the “POstables,” Oliver O’Toole (Eric Mabius, “Ugly Betty”), Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth, “Orphan Black”), Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe, “Smallville”) and Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson “Primeval: New World”) will take millions of viewers on new adventures as they uncover the mysteries of lost missives, profoundly changing lives in the process. The movie features guest stars Marion Ross and Rob Estes.
Williamson’s production company, MoonWater Productions, is currently expanding her brand of inspirational entertainment into more television series and upcoming feature films.
Signed, Sealed, Delivered is a Muse Entertainment production in association with MoonWater Productions. Executive producers are Martha Williamson (“Touched by an Angel”), Joel S. Rice (“Cyberbully”) and Michael Prupas (“The Kennedys”). Harvey Kahn (“The Haunting Hour”) is the producer.
