Doris Roberts set for Hallmark Channel movie

Actress will star in sequel to 'Mrs. Miracle'

Doris Roberts is returning to Hallmark Channel to star in a sequel to the network's popular movie "Debbie Macomber's Mrs. Miracle."

The follow-up, "Call Me Mrs. Miracle," also is based on a book by Macomber, which she wrote specifically for Hallmark Channel after the success of the first film last year.

Hallmark plans to announce the casting during its upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday in New York.

In the new movie, it's Christmas in New York City, and Mrs. Merkle (Roberts) is a saleswoman in a family-owned department store and works her magic on those around her.

Dan Wigutow, Michael M. Scott and Debbie Macomber are the executive producers.
