On Thursday, January 8 at the 2015 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries announced a new movie franchise, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, starring Alison Sweeney (Days of our Lives, The Biggest Loser) and Cameron Mathison (All My Children, Good Morning America).

Based on the New York Times bestselling book, "Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder" by Joanne Fluke, the film will take viewers on a mouthwatering mystery that centers on Hannah Swensen, shop owner of the Cookie Jar where much of the town's gossip percolates along with the strong coffee. But when a mysterious murder occurs, Hannah turns into a culinary detective and finds herself trying to solve the crime while getting caught in an unexpected romantic mystery of her own.

"Our viewers will be taken on a captivating journey as we launch the newest mystery movie series," said Michelle Vicary, Crown Media Family Networks programming and exec VP of publicity. "Alison Sweeney and Cameron Mathison are the perfect pairing to bring Joanne Fluke’s storytelling to life."

"It’s not the person that picks the cookie, it's the cookie that picks the person," Vicary added. "It's this thought process to also solving the town’s mysteries that irritates Detective Mike Kingston."

Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder, which is expected to premiere this spring, is produced by Brad Krevoy Television and Stephanie Germain Productions, with Brad Krevoy, Stephanie Germain and Eric Jarboe as executive producers.
