Hallmark Channel launches family movie showcase
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Hallmark Channel is making a new Friday night home for family movies.
The channel announced Wednesday that it will launch the showcase on March 15 with the debut of "Return to Nim's Island," starring Bindi Irwin. The film is a sequel to the 2008 action-adventure movie "Nim's Island."
Bindi is the 14-year-old daughter of the late Steve Irwin, the Australian crocodile hunter.
Hallmark says the movie will air as part of the new "Walden Family Theater" series, a Hallmark Channel collaboration with producer Walden Media, ARC Entertainment studio and sponsors Wal-Mart and Procter & Gamble.
Other original Friday night movies will include "Space Warriors," with Dermot Mulroney and Danny Glover, set to air in May. The showcase also will include films from the Hallmark Channel library.
