Hallmark Channel Brings the Women’s Lit

Hallmark Channel is making good on its promise last year to bring more long-form originals to its bandwidth. It starts with the network's first scripted ongoing series, Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove, announced last year and now set for a July 20 premiere; then comes new special When Calls the Heart, based on the Janette Oke novel and debuting in October.
