CROWN MEDIA FAMILY NETWORKS ANNOUNCES 'SIGNED, SEALED, DELIVERED' FROM MARTHA WILLIAMSON, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF 'TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL,' MOVES TO HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES WITH NEW EXTENDED FORMAT

Franchise to Include Multiple 2-Hour Original Movies; First Film, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered For Christmas," Premieres November 23

Crown Media Family Networks announced today that Hallmark Channel original weekly scripted series, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," executive produced and written by Martha Williamson (Executive Producer of "Touched by an Angel"), will move to sister network Hallmark Movies & Mysteries as a movie franchise consisting of a series of two-hour original films. Debuting on November 23 at 9pm ET/PT, 8C, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered For Christmas" will be the first movie in the franchise, with three more slated for 2015.

"We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Martha Williamson and to bring her brand of rich and poignant stories to viewers on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries," said Michelle Vicary, executive vice president, programming and network publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "At their core, the narratives on 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered' revolve around mystery and suspense, with compelling characters and dramatic storylines that will be enhanced by an extended format."

"When Bill Abbott and Michelle Vicary asked if I can evolve the 'Signed Sealed Delivered' franchise into a series of movies, I was honored to continue the Hallmark tradition of quality family movies," said series Creator and Executive Producer Martha Williamson. "At the heart of 'Signed Sealed Delivered' is Oliver, a modern day gentleman with old world values played brilliantly by Eric Mabius," she added. "He and his wonderful team of postal detectives will continue to surprise us and sometimes make us laugh as they work to solve mysteries behind letters, even mysteries of life."

Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will introduce viewers to the "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" franchise by airing a marathon of the series on Saturday, October 11 from 11am - 11pm ET/PT, 10C.

Returning as the "POstables," Oliver O'Toole (Eric Mabius, "Ugly Betty"), Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth, "Orphan Black"), Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe, "Smallville") and Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson "Primeval: New World") will take millions of viewers on new adventures as they uncover the mysteries of lost missives and return them to their intended recipients, profoundly changing lives in the process.

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is a comedic drama that follows the lives of a group of postal workers who transform themselves into an untraditional team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow on time.

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is a Muse Entertainment production in association with MoonWater Productions. Executive Producers are Martha Williamson ("Touched by an Angel"), Joel S. Rice ("Cyberbully") and Michael Prupas ("The Kennedys"). Harvey Kahn ("The Haunting Hour") is the producer.

ABOUT MARTHA WILLIAMSON

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. She began her career in comedy with the producing teams for Carol Burnett and Joan Rivers and went on to write and produce situation comedies such as "The Facts of Life," "Family Man" and "Jack's Place" for all the networks before making the transition to one-hour drama. 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.
