Based on the bestselling book series Cedar Cove by #1 New York Times bestselling author, Debbie Macomber
L’Oréal Paris signs on with W Network as a lead broadcast sponsor for the series
Corus Entertainment’s W Network announces the premiere of Cedar Cove, starring internationally renowned film and television star and Golden Globe® winner, Andie MacDowell and veteran actor, Dylan Neal (The Bold and the Beautiful, Dawson’s Creek). The series, based on the bestselling book series Cedar Cove by #1 New York Times bestselling author, Debbie Macomber, is centered around Judge Olivia Lockhart (Andie MacDowell), whose Cedar Cove Municipal Court is where the town’s surprises and hidden secrets are unveiled. Cedar Cove airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning July 21 with a special two-hour premiere on W Network.
In the series, MacDowell plays Judge Olivia Lockhart, whose Cedar Cove Municipal Court is the professional milieu and social microcosm of issues the judge will face in her own day-to-day life with family and friends. Jack Griffith (Dylan Neal), the editor of the Cedar Cove Chronicle, is a new friend and potential love interest for Judge Lockhart. In the premiere, Judge Lockhart is overjoyed to hear that her name is being put forth for appointment to a Federal judgeship in Seattle by her longtime friend, Senator Pete Albertson. Olivia asks that her family keep the news a secret. In the meantime, Jack Griffith, desperate for a meaningful news story, corners Olivia’s mother who inadvertently tells the editor about everything in her daughter’s life – including the possible appointment. Suddenly, Olivia (much to her chagrin) is front page news. How will her family, and the rest of the town, react to the potential changes in Olivia’s life?
Other cast members include Bruce Boxleitner (TRON, Babylon 5); Teryl Rothery (Stargate SG-1, Kyle XY); Barbara Niven (One Life To Live, The Bold and the Beautiful); and Brennan Elliott (The Nanny Express, Strong Medicine).
L’Oréal Paris is on board as lead broadcast sponsor for Cedar Cove. The series star, Andie MacDowell, is one of L’Oréal Paris’ most popular brand ambassadors. W Network will provide the brand with significant exposure on-air.
