Hallmark Gives Series Order to Drama 'The Way Home' Created by Heather Conkie and Alexandra Clarke

Hallmark has today given a series order to the original drama series The Way Home created by the mother-daughter team of Heather Conkie and Alexandra Clarke. Production will begin this summer in Ontario, Canada for a 2023 premiere.

The family drama will follow the lives of three generations of women within the Landry family that spans the years through a time travel twist. Kat Landry, her 15-year-old daughter Alice and Kat's estranged mother Del are all strong, willful and independent. More than 20 years prior, life-changing events created a chasm in their family that time has yet to repair. Kat and Del still aren't on speaking terms. Alice has never met her grandmother and is unaware of the reasons for their fractured family. When the three generations come together under one roof for the first time in more than two decades, a surprising discovery unexpectedly sets the trio on a path toward healing and helps them find their way back to each other.

Conkie and Clarke will executive produce with Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer, Fernando Szew, Arnie Zipursky and Marly Reed. MarVista Entertainment and Neshama Entertainment will produce.

"One of my passions is developing series and it's beyond thrilling to spearhead the development of The Way Home and others for Crown Media," said Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President of Programming, Crown Media Family Networks.

"I can't wait to share the emotional story of the Landry women so beautifully and creatively imagined by Heather Conkie and Alexandra Clarke and that is sure to become appointment TV for our viewers," added Laurie Ferneau, Senior Vice President of Development, Crown Media Family Networks.
