The two-hour backdoor pilot film Signed, Sealed, Delivered that will debut on the Hallmark Channel on Saturday, October 12 has official been ordered to series for next year.
This new series, from ‘Touched By An Angel’ showrunner Martha Williamson, received a 10-episode order from the network and will follow a quartet of civil servants who transform themselves into an elite team of lost-mail detectives. Their determination to deliver the undeliverable takes them out of the post office and into an unpredictable world where letters and packages from the past save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but always miraculously on time.
Michelle Vicary, the Executive Vice President of Programming at Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel, had this to say about Williamson, “We are making history at Hallmark Channel by joining forces with Martha Williamson, one of TV’s great storytellers, as she returns to television making the kind of series we know tens of millions of viewers are yearning for. This marks a significant milestone in our growth into scripted programming, and we couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to work with the very gifted and talented Martha Williamson, who brings her trusted name in family entertainment to our network”.
The cast of ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’ will include Eric Mabius (‘Ugly Betty’), Kristin Booth (‘The Kennedys’), Geoff Gustafson (‘Primeval: New World’), Daphne Zuniga (‘Melrose Place’) and Crystal Lowe (‘Primeval: New World’).
Again, ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered’ will debut on October 12 at 9/8c on the Hallmark Channel with the weekly series set to debut sometime in 2014.
