Hallmark CHANNEL is pleased to announce that it is partnering once again with beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber to create its fourth Hallmark CHANNEL Original Holiday Movie World Premiere “Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle,” slated to debut Holiday 2014.
The movie and backdoor pilot will be part of the network’s hugely popular “Countdown To Christmas,” the #1 most treasured holiday destination by television viewers. Previously, Hallmark CHANNEL partnered with Macomber to bring the holiday movies “Debbie Macomber’s Mrs. Miracle,” “Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle” and “Debbie Macomber’s Trading Christmas” to the small screen. Audiences fell in love with the film adaptations of Macomber’s bestselling books, all of which were so successful that they became among the top rated holiday movies on the network. Of course, Macomber’s bestselling Cedar Cove novels are also the basis for Hallmark Channel’s highly successful first scripted dramatic series, “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove.” The novel, MR. MIRACLE, will be published as a Ballantine Hardcover in October 2014.
“We are so excited to extend our partnership with Debbie Macomber to develop yet another celebrated and beloved holiday movie we know our audience will want to see,” said Michelle Vicary, EVP, Programming for Hallmark CHANNEL and Hallmark Movie Channel. “We have such an incredible working relationship with Debbie and we are honored to collaborate with her to create another successful film that viewers will treasure this holiday season,” Vicary concluded.
“I feel blessed to enter into another television production with the wonderful team at Hallmark Channel, especially for a my new Christmas novel: Mr. Miracle, a book I am especially proud of,” adds Macomber. “The collaborative partnership Hallmark CHANNEL and I share is a reflection of what is important to us both– family, home and friendship — these are the qualities I strive for with each story, as they do with each program. I can’t wait to see Mr. Miracle on the screen!”
In “Debbie Macomber’s Mr. Miracle,” heaven and earth collide when angel-in-training Harry Mills, A.K.A “Mr. Miracle” is sent down to a community college during Christmas for his first assignment: to help an insecure student realize her true purpose in life. Harry, living as a literature teacher, is also schooled in lessons of life and love as he realizes that dealing with humans is not as easy as it looks like from the clouds.
