Hallmark Orders Drama 'Mistletoe Murders' Starring Sarah Drew

Hallmark has today given a series order to the original drama series Mistletoe Murders starring Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy, Amber Brown). Production on the first season will begin next month in Toronto.

When Emily Lane (Drew) isn't busy running her charming small-town Christmas-themed store, "Under the Mistletoe," she finds herself compelled to investigate local murders with the help of handsome local police detective and his teen daughter. On the surface, Emily is a perfectly lovely, good-natured mystery lover - but she is hiding a secret past that, if exposed, threatens to destroy the new life she has built in Fletcher's Grove.

Ken Cuperus developed the drama based on the Audible podcast of the same name. He will executive produce with Drew, Jocelyn Hamilton, Michelle Melanson and director Grant Harvey. Lionsgate Television, eOne Canada and Headspinner Productions will produce.
