Movies 24 is going postal.
The Universal Networks International owned and operated channel has picked up the exclusive first run UK broadcast rights to the first season of Hallmark Channel’s original drama series Signed, Sealed, Delivered, TVWise has learned. The show’s first season is set to premiere on Movies 24 on Sunday January 11th at 5pm.
Signed, Sealed, Delivered follows a quartet of civil servants who transform themselves into an elite team of lost-mail detectives working in the Dead Letter Office. Their determination to deliver the undeliverable takes them out of the post office and into an unpredictable world where letters and packages from the past save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but always miraculously on time.
Created by Martha Williamson, the drama series is produced by Special Delivery TeleProductions in association with MoonWater Productions & Muse Entertainment and stars Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty), Kristin Booth (The Kennedys) and Daphne Zuniga (Melrose Place). The executive producers are Martha Williamson, Joel S.Rice (Cyberbully), Michael Prupas (The Kennedys) and Scott Smith (Skins).
Signed, Sealed, Delivered has the distincition of becoming the third Hallmark original series that Movies 24 has acquired in the past year. The channel previously took second window rights to Hallmark’s flagship series Cedar Cove (first window rights are held by Channel 5), and back in August they picked up period drama When Calls The Heart.
