CATHERINE BELL AND CHRIS POTTER TO STAR IN 'THE GOOD WITCH'S WEDDING,' A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE AND SEQUEL TO 'THE GOOD WITCH,' HALLMARK CHANNEL'S SECOND-HIGHEST-RATED ORIGINAL MOVIE EVER

"The Good Witch's Wedding" Has Begun Production in Toronto, Canada; Will Premiere on Hallmark Channel in 2010

Catherine Bell ("Army Wives") and Chris Potter ("The Pacifier") are set to reprise their roles from "The Good Witch," Hallmark Channel's second-highest-rated original movie ever, with "The Good Witch's Wedding," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie. It has begun production in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and will premiere on the network in 2010.

In the new movie, Jake Russell (Potter) is looking for the perfect Christmas gift for his fianc�e, Cassie Nightingale (Bell), and decides, with just six days left, to give her the perfect gift -- a wedding on Christmas Eve � but neither are prepared for all the obstacles that get in the way.

Almost as soon as Jake and Cassie decide to get married on Christmas Eve, complications arise. An ex-con, Leon Deeks (Graham Abbey, "The Border"), arrives in town, and Jake is asked by the Mayor to make him his top priority. At the same time, Jake's having trouble securing the wedding license since he can't find Cassie's documents proving her existence. There's also the difficulty in finding a wedding cake at the last minute. Last but not least, Jake's kids are upset: Brandon (Mathew Knight, "Candles on Bay Street") wants to spend time with his new girlfriend, and is feuding with his sister, Lori (Hannah Endicott-Douglas, "Samantha: An American Girl Holiday.") Meanwhile, Lori manages to lose Cassie's wedding ring.

It's up to Cassie to work her magic with her family and the community in order to fix all the obstacles in time to turn the wedding into a perfect holiday celebration.

"The Good Witch," which premiered Jan. 19, 2008 with a 3.8 HH rating and nearly 3.2 million homes, is the story of a mysterious and mystical woman who moves into a small town, lives in a reputed haunted house, and has everyone wondering if she's a witch because of the magical changes she begins to make in everyone's lives. The first sequel was "The Good Witch's Garden" which premiered Feb. 7, 2009.

"The Good Witch's Wedding" is being produced by Good Witch Weds Productions, Inc. Frank Siracusa ("Trojan Horse," "The Good Witch"), Orly Adelson ("Ruffian," "The Good Witch"), and Jonathan Eskenas ("Codebreakers", "The Good Witch") are the executive producers; Andrea Raffaghello ("Turn The Beat Around", "The Good Witch's Garden") is the producer. Craig Pryce ("Double Wedding," "The Good Witch") will direct from a script by Rod Spence ("The Good Witch") and G. Ross Parker ("Code Breakers").
