Angela Hunt's "The Note" to be Hallmark movie

According to a article by John Dempsey:

The Hallmark Channel has commissioned "The Note," a holiday-themed TV movie to star Genie Francis and Ted McGinley and premiere on Dec. 8.

Co-produced by Lightworks Pictures (a Faith & Values company) and WildRice Prods., telepic concerns a lonelyhearts columnist who stumbles on a note written to an unidentified child by a passenger who dies in a plane crash. The columnist's editor tells her to go all out to find the child before Christmas and write about her progress in the column.

In a comment on her blog, Angela says in response:

"I have seen a script, but I am also aware that scripts can change even as the cameras are rolling. I know that the script changes the location, but most of the major details remain. At this point I am pretty much out of the picture.

As you know, if you've read it, THE NOTE is a parable story--a prodigal daughter story, in fact. The thing that is most important to me is that the aspects of the parable remain true.

And I have one final hope--no matter how the movie differs, I am hoping that the movie will drive sales of the book--because the entire Truth is in the book, and reinforced by the discussion questions.

I have heard--but this may change--that the air date will be Dec. 22. I'll let you know if I hear anything different. I would expect them to be filming any day now, so let's pray for the process.

General Hospital's Luke and Laura--LOL! I never would have believed that "Laura" would be playing "Peyton."

I "DVR'd" this movie last month and just saw it last night. Excellent movie with a great message.
I have watched GH for over 25 years and casting Genie Francis was wonderful.
Hopefully they'll show this movie throughout the year, not just at Christmas.

I agree that this Hallmark should air this movie other than at Christmas. The message is for always, not just December.
