"All My Children" alum and frequent "Good Morning America" and "Entertainment Tonight" correspondent, Cameron Mathison, has signed on to star alongside Alison Sweeney ("Days of our Lives," "The Biggest Loser") in a new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series of movies beginning with "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" (working title), which will premiere on the network in the spring.
Currently in production on its second season, Hallmark Channel announced last night during its Winter TCA Press Tour event that "General Hospital's" Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco Jones) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia Jones) will join the cast as regulars in its original series "When Calls the Heart," set in a 19th century mining town and starring Lori Loughlin ("Full House," "Summerland"), Erin Krakow and Daniel Lissing.
The series premiere of FOX's "Empire" on Wednesday night attracted 9.9 million viewers and a 3.8/10 in Adults 18-49, reports TVbytheNumbers, based on rush nationals ordered by the network. "Empire" now ties ABC's "How to Get Away with Murder" for the highest rated series premiere of the season in the key sales demo.

Now that "Days of our Lives" is no longer part of her daily grind, Alison Sweeney (ex-Sami Brady) is taking the lead in a new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie franchise. Sweeney has been cast as Hannah Swensen in "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder," which is based on the New York Times best selling series of books by Joanne Fluke, reports Deadline.

In a new promo for "General Hospital," the daytime drama series is compared to the likes of ABC's primetime hits "Scandal," "Revenge" and even "How to Get Away with Murder" when the announcer says, "When you think 'Scandal' and 'Revenge,' think 'GH.' We know all about getting away with murder."
