INTERNATIONAL SUPERSTAR MARIE OSMOND BEGINS PRODUCTION ON ‘MARIE,’ A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL SERIES DEBUTING OCTOBER 1
Hallmark Channel and Marie Osmond announce production has begun on the international superstar’s one-hour talk show, “Marie,” which debuts October 1 (12 Noon ET/PT, 11C). The announcement was made by Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel. Associated Television International will produce the new lifestyle series which will air weekday on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s expanded Lifestyle block.
“Marie” is an inspirational journey to help people make a difference in their own lives. The segments will feature celebrity and non-celebrity guests who drop by for everything from revelatory discussion, lifestyle tips and trends, socially important issues, and breakthroughs that empower families. Marie’s potential guests include everyone from the publicly famous to everyday people with out-of-the-ordinary experiences, to the star’s famous family, her closest girlfriends, and the nation’s leading experts in diverse fields designed to revolutionize lives.
“Marie Osmond aspires to help people feel better about themselves,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.
“An American icon, renowned entertainer, mother of eight kids and a New York Times best-selling author, Marie opens the door in this talk show to highlight her milestones and her missteps, but always through the filter of knowing that we share a common humanity that makes us all feel better about who we are,” Vicary concluded.
On “Marie,” Osmond imparts her insights on surviving all of life’s roadblocks and detours with heartfelt advice about how to survive and move on with dignity, humor and optimism. The series will use Osmond’s life experiences, her greatest successes and most crushing disappointments, including marriage and divorce, the trials of raising eight children, depression, and more, to provide insights and hope that we can all come through hard times with unstoppable enthusiasm, resilience, and courage.
