Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere
Saturday, June 1 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C)
Starring: Danny Glover, Austin Stowell, Kayla Ewell
Acclaimed artist Norman Rockwell is a celebrated 20th century prolific painter and illustrator who is renowned for his idyllic small-town American scenes that were featured on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post, including his 1950's painting, Shuffleton's Barbershop. When Rockwell's painting fades into the world of Charlie Shuffleton's (Glover) barbershop, the classic piece of Americana becomes the center of a small town in North Carolina where friends gather. Peering in the window, famous country singer Trey Cole (Stowell) is finally returning home after abandoning the town many years ago and never looking back, even when his brother died serving in the military, leaving sister-in-law, Norma (Ewell), to care for her son by herself. Now, realizing he's lost himself along the way, Trey remembers his first haircut in the brown leather chair as a young boy at age ten in Charlie's shop and hopes to find guidance from the man who was a father to him when his own dad was coldly absent during his childhood.

Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere
Saturday, August 24 (9pm ET/PT, 8C)
Starring: Lori Loughlin, Andrew Dunbar, Rick Ravanello, Cameron Bancroft
Jennifer Shannon (Loughlin) can always find a diamond in the rough - when it comes to garage sales, that is! Whether it's a new antique to sell at her consignment shop, an Atari game for her son or a piece of furniture for her handy husband Jason (Ravanello) to refurbish, she has made a career out of her treasure hunting prowess. When a string of burglaries hits her town, Jennifer's keen eye for detail and her natural problem solving instincts even help her see the connection between these burglaries and the garage sales she frequents. Jennifer works with Detective Adam Iverson (Dunbar) to investigate her theory that the perpetrators of the burglaries are fellow garage sale regulars. However, the case escalates to dangerous levels when Jennifer discovers the dead body of her friend, and suspects that her death may be related to the burglaries. The deceased's husband, Ben Douglas (Bancroft) finds nothing missing in their house, however, and the police label the death as accidental. Even when the case seems to have hit a dead end, Jennifer follows her instincts and tries to prove that her friend's death was no accident.

Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere
Saturday, August 17 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C)
Starring: Diane Neal, Travis Schuldt, Alaina Huffman, Vincent Spano, Charles Shaughnessy
When Hollywood star Helena Harris (Neal) films her newest movie, "This Magic Moment," in the small town of Stone's Throw, she strikes up an unlikely friendship with local video store owner Clark Gable (Schuldt). Helena, who recently broke up with co-star Roberto Molinez (Spano), asks her new friend Clark to pretend to be her love interest in order to make Roberto jealous. Clark agrees and in exchange, Helena helps him pursue his screenwriting career. While this agreement benefits both Clark and Helena, it also complicates the relationship between Clark and his former high school sweetheart, Emily (Huffman). As Helena and Clark's fake romance successfully brings out the green monster in Roberto, the jealous Roberto decides to win Helena back and give Clark a taste of his own medicine by pursuing Emily. Despite the real romantic spark that the fake romance ignites between Helena and Clark, Helena has doubts about their relationship as Clark faces his own doubts about his lingering feelings for Emily. But as the director (Shaughnessy) begins to wrap production, Helena and Clark must decide if they are meant to live happily ever after together, or if there are happier endings elsewhere for their love stories.
