On Saturday, May 2 at 9:00 PM, ET/PT, get ready for Alison Sweeney (“Days of our Lives”) and Cameron Mathison (“All My Children”) to take America by storm when their Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original movie, “Murder She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder Mystery,” premieres on the cable network.
The movie, also starring “One Life to Live” alum Barbara Niven (“Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”), is based on the bestselling series of books by Joanne Fluke and follows the story of Hannah Swensen (Sweeney), owner of the Cookie Jar shop where patrons frequently gossip about the latest happenings in town.
When a mysterious murder takes place, Hannah gets herself involved in trying to help solve the crime as she puts on her culinary detective hat, while in the process she finds an unexpected romantic mystery of her own.
Mathison is set to play Detective Mike Kingston, who is irritated by Hannah as she uses her outlook on life – “It’s not the person that picks the cookie, it’s the cookie that picks the person” – to help solve crimes.
Production began on the movie earlier this month.
