[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]

FROM THE CREATIVE FORCE BEHIND "TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL" HALLMARK CHANNEL BRINGS MARTHA WILLIAMSON'S "SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED" TO THE CHANNEL AS THE NETWORK'S NEWEST PRIMETIME SERIES

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" Premieres With A Two-Hour Backdoor Pilot, Saturday, October 12; One-Hour Primetime Series to Debut in 2014

Hallmark Channel, the nation's leading destination for quality family programming, announces today the coming together of two trusted brands of family entertainment with the series pickup of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" from Executive Producer Martha Williamson. Series debuts in Q2, 2014 with 10 one-hour episodes. The Original Series is Created, Executive Produced and Written by Martha Williamson, acclaimed as Executive Producer of the long-running hit series, "Touched By An Angel" and marks Williamson's return to television. The movie pilot for "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" stars Eric Mabius ("Scandal," "Ugly Betty"), Kristin Booth ("The Kennedys") and Daphne Zuniga ("Melrose Place") and has its World Premiere, Saturday, October 12 (9 p.m. ET/PT, 8C). "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" follows 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.

"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," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. "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," Vicary concluded.

Martha Williamson made television history when her CBS series "Touched By An Angel" set a new standard for an inspirational family drama when it grew to a weekly audience of 25 million viewers during its initial nine year run. As Executive Producer of the ground-breaking series, she was the visionary who guided the series into previously uncharted territory with her unique brand of storytelling that produced more than strong ratings; it changed lives. She went on to seal her place in history when she became the first woman to solely executive produce two one-hours simultaneously with "Promised Land," which aired for three years on CBS. Her work has been inducted into the Television and Radio Hall of Fame and honored with numerous awards, including the Edward R. Murray Responsibility in Television Award, the Templeton Prize Epiphany Award and nine Emmy(R) nominations.

"As much as the television landscape has changed, the audience for positive and inspiring programming hasn't gone anywhere," said Martha Williamson. "It is a privilege to work with Michelle and the great team at Hallmark Channel on a series that I know will bring viewers inspiration and hope," Williamson concluded.

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is a Special Delivery TeleProductions in association with MoonWater Productions and Muse Entertainment. Executive Producers are Martha Williamson, Joel S. Rice, Michael Prupas and Scott Smith. Scott Smith directed from a script written by Martha Williamson. Muse Distribution International is handling worldwide distribution.
