Hallmark Channel’s Family Friendly Movies and Stellar Talent
By Margie Barron on August 10th, 2012 Printer-Friendly
“Smart Cookies” airs on the Hallmark Channel.
Winding down the two weeks of the television press tour, one of the last great gatherings was for the Hallmark network to make some big announcements. During an elegant luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel, Hallmark’s president and CEO Bill Abbott talked about the full schedule of movies, specials, and daytime shows. Bragging about the “incredible talent we have,” Abbott looked around the room at the stars of the upcoming original movies, which are at the core of the Hallmark Channel’s “robust family content.”Abbott announced that Smart Cookies, premiering Aug. 18, is another great movie with a mission, “to help celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Girl Scouts of the USA,”.
Patricia Richardson (of Home Improvement fame), who stars with Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee) and Bailee Madison (Just Go With It)said “Smart Cookies” is about a real estate agent who helps a hapless Girl Scout troop with their annual cookie sale competition. Behind the scenes, executive producer Jimmy Hawkins, who was a popular child actor in the ’40s ’50’s &’60’s and played Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed’s son Tommy Bailey in the Frank Capra classic It’s a Wonderful Life.”Smart Cookies” is based on Hawkins story “Be Prepared”. Nowadays he’s producing great family friendly movies for a new generation. Richardson said she was “so delighted to work with him because when you do a production like this, we all become like a family. He’s one of the nicest guys in show business, and when you are working with children, when you have a producer who knows what it’s like, it brings a great quality to the set.”
People! Calm down. This isn’t a documentary. The leader would probably need to go through some type of training (although I did not have to for Boy Scout Den Leader!). There’s such a shortage of participation by parents – sometimes they are happy just to get someone to volunteer. This is a lighthearted movie – not FACTUAL by any means. The leader and the girls work well together in the end. I thought it was cute with some laugh-out-loud funny moments.
AND yes it was explained why the real estate woman took on the troop leader role. Her firm was looking at being bought by a larger firm. All of the agents took on a community project for 90 days to show their involvement. She was the only female – so she got the Girl Scout Troop.
Overall very cute.
