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.

    Sounds interesting.. But I hope she will not pick the obvious choice and start off with Oprah, as we've all heard her (spiritual) life stories ad nauseum. I would love to see some less-exposed and interesting individuals, from the literary world for instance.

    Let me guess..it is going to be an African American quiz show presumably called Name that Coon?

    Why on earth would anyone want to listen to this anti american marxist ramblings? Fuck her and her bullshit prose. The biggest mistake is taking her and Perez seriously.

    Sounds like a real snooze fest. Can't wait. Sometimes I like to lay on the couch and try to take a nap. Sometimes the programming is so interesting that it keeps me awake.

    Why would you write that comment across her picture? You are an asshole.

    The thing about Maya is, while she's famous and commendable for being one of the 1st successful black poets…she's really not that good of a poet. Not hating here in anyway, just stating the obvious.

    A classsy lady with much charm and a beautiful smile. I appreciate her writing and what she represents - class.

    How many thousands of years old is this woman? I can't wait to hear her story about how a loaf of bread cost a nickel when she was growing up.
