A HALLMARK MOVIES & MYSTERIES ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE JUNE 4 New Mystery Series Based on Dana Cameron’s Best-Selling Novels
STUDIO CITY, CA – Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, the #1 cable TV destination for suspense and mystery, announces the World Premiere of the first installment of the network’s newest mystery movie franchise “Emma Fielding Mysteries” based on the series of novels by famed historical archeologist turned fiction writer Dana Cameron. Courtney Thorne-Smith (“Life with Jim,” “Melrose Place”) stars as Emma Fielding in “Site Unseen: An Emma Fielding Mystery,” a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Original World Premiere, Sunday, June 4 (9 p.m. ET/PT).
In “Site Unseen: An Emma Fielding Mystery,” Emma (Thorne-Smith) is a brilliant, dedicated, and driven archaeologist who discovers artifacts that have been lost for hundreds of years–and she’s very, very good at it. Emma has recently unearthed evidence of a possible 17th century coastal Maine settlement that predates Jamestown, one of the most significant archaeological finds in years. But the dead body she uncovers on the site pushes Emma into a different kind of exploration. Her dig site is suddenly in jeopardy of being shut down, due to the meddling of local treasure-hunters and a second suspicious murder. Emma must team with the handsome FBI Agent investigating the case to dig up dirt on the killer, before Emma and her excavation are ancient history.
“We are so thrilled to bring Courtney Thorne-Smith to Hallmark Movies & Mysteries to play the multi-dimensional character of Emma Fielding, an archeologist with a knack for unearthing more than antiquities,” says Michelle Vicary, EVP of Programming.
“Courtney will bring objective reasoning, deftness, and a keen sense of humor to Emma Fielding, and we expect the series will have the same stellar success our other mystery movie franchises enjoy,” Vicary concluded.
“Site Unseen: An Emma Fielding Mystery” is a Muse Entertainment Production. Joel Rice, Courtney Thorne-Smith, and Michael Prupas are Executive Producers, with Kellie Martin as Co-Executive Producer. Harvey Kahn will produce from a screenplay adapted by Suzette Couture, based on the series of novels by author Dana Cameron.
