Andie MacDowell (“Maid,” “Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove”) reunites with Hallmark Channel to star in “The Way Home,” the network’s new, original primetime series announced last month that was the first to be greenlit since 2016.
MacDowell plays Del, matriarch of the Landry family and a pillar of the close-knit community of her small, Canadian farm town. She and her daughter Kat have been estranged from each other following tragic events that left their family forever changed and prompted Kat to move away. When Kat unexpectedly returns many years later with her teenage daughter whom Del has never met, the three generations of women embark on an enlightening journey to find their way back to each other and learn important lessons about their family’s past.
“We’ve found our perfect Del Landry in Andie MacDowell,” began Lisa Hamilton Daly, Executive Vice President, Programming, Crown Media Family Networks. “It was crucial to cast someone with the ability to handle the nuances and depth of the role and we can’t wait to see her bring Del to life.”
“Our viewers loved Andie MacDowell when she starred in ‘Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cove,’ our first original primetime series,” remarked Laurie Ferneau, Senior Vice President, Development, Crown Media Family Networks. “We couldn’t be happier to welcome her home to Hallmark Channel and we know our fans will fall in love with her all over again.”
“The Way Home” is executive produced by Marly Reed and Arnie Zipursky for Neshama Entertainment; Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer and Fernando Szew for MarVista Entertainment; and Heather Conkie, Alexandra Clarke and Andie MacDowell.
MacDowell is represented by RMS Productions, Gersh and Narrative.
