    MUMBAI: US-based cable television channel Hallmark Channel has green lighted Cedar Cove as its first ever original prime-time series which is expected to premiere in the spring of 2013.

    Based on the novel by Debbie Macomber, the show starring Andie MacDowell is heading into production in Vancouver with veteran television producer Carl Binder at the helm.

    "If ever there was a recipe for series success, Cedar Cove is it," said Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel executive vice president of programming Michelle Vicary.

    "Start with internationally-acclaimed actor Andie MacDowell, add seasoned co-star Dylan Neal, Debbie Macomber‘s bestselling stories, the consistency of a world-class show runner and one of the most successful producing teams in television, and you‘ll see why we think the outcome will be irresistible - Cedar Cove will be the place we all want to call home," Vicary added.

    Cedar Cove is based on Debbie Macomber‘s novels and stars MacDowell as Judge Olivia Lockhart whose Cedar Cove Municipal Court is the professional milieu and social microcosm of issues the judge will face in her own day-to-day life with family and friends.
