Doris Roberts to Star in DEBBIE MACOMBER’S CALL ME MRS. MIRACLE

Doris Roberts and the holiday season are a winning combination, which is why the Hallmark Channel is planning a new holiday movie starring the Emmy award winning actress. It’s based on best-selling author Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle (the upcoming book will be out on September 28th), and is a sequel to the highest rated Hallmark movie of 2009, Mrs. Miracle.

Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle also stars Jewel Staite (Stargate: Atlantis, Firefly), Eric Johnson (Rookie Blue) and Lauren Holly (The Town That Christmas Forgot).

According to a release, “No one celebrates the holidays like Emily Merkle (Roberts) Mrs. Miracle as she is known by some – who is back to ensure that this Christmas is the most magical and meaningful of all. When Mrs. Miracle appears as a seasonal employee in the toy department at the financially troubled Finley’s Department Store, neither the store’s owners, nor the customers, have any idea of the saintly events that are about to unfold. None of them can even say who hired Mrs. Merkle or where exactly she came from, but her illustrious and angelic spirit will dispel gloom, drive away misery, and prove that miracles happen every day, especially on Christmas.”

Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle will premiere on Saturday, November 27th at 8pm on Hallmark.
