Does everybody have a TV show?
The Hallmark Channels recent press release makes it seem so.
An unscripted lifestyle series with Maya Angelou its first-ever original musical film and more Martha Stewart primetime interview specials are among the Hallmark Channel's programming slate for 2011-12.
The network also confirmed the launch of the previously unnamed Emeril's Table, a new daily cooking show featuring Emeril Lagasse, which will debut in the fourth quarter and got a 52 half-hour episode order.
The new 13-episode series hosted by writer Angelou is called The Spirit Table and will feature the host and well-known guests sharing life stories and cooking, executives said without immediately announcing names of likely guests. They said the show is targeted for a primetime run with a launch in early 2012.
Among 25 original movies scheduled for the Hallmark Channel will be The Music Teacher, the channel's first foray into musicals.
We are especially excited to announce Billy Ray Cyrus, is set to star in a Hallmark Channel original movie.
