Mariah Carey signs Hallmark Channel deal for movies
Expect to see Mariah Carey on the Hallmark Channel very soon.
The pop singer has signed a three-movie deal with Hallmark, the network announced Monday. For each movie — the first of which is set to premiere during 2017’s “Countdown to Valentine’s Day” slate — Carey will develop, executive-produce, direct, costar, and pen an original song.
“We are honored to continue our collaboration with the multi-talented Mariah Carey,” Crown Media Family Networks EVP of Programming Michelle Vicary said in a statement. “It’s rare to work with a talent who can produce, direct, star and also compose original music for a project, and we know she will deliver for our viewers once again.”
Carey and Hallmark teamed up last holiday season for A Christmas Melody, which Carey directed and costarred in. She also hosted Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas; the musical revue is the most-viewed show in Hallmark history.
In other TV news for Carey: The musician will open up to her Lambs in an upcoming eight-part E! documentary series (don’t call it a reality show), Mariah’s World, set to debut later this year.
Deadline first reported the news.
