Hallmark to Adapt ‘The Beach House’ Novel to Movie

Hallmark Channel will develop a new original movie based on author Mary Alice Monroe’s novel The Beach House, the network said Monday.

The movie, which will air exclusively on Hallmark in 2016, will star Andie MacDowell (Cedar Cove) who will also serve as executive producer. The story follows a woman struggling through life who returns to her Southern roots and troubled family after an unusual request from her mother.

“The evocative prose of The Beach House is an exploration of strengths and weaknesses so eloquently portrayed in all of Mary Alice Monroe’s writing: agony against past mistakes, present pain and the hope of a brighter future,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries in a statement.
