Expecting a Miracle premieres on the Hallmark Channel

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: January 10, 2009 | Categories: Entertainment, TV

The Hallmark Channel original movie Expecting a Miracle is going to be, yet again, another great family movie. We all know how hard it is to find that on television these days… so kudos to Hallmark for continuously bringing us original family movies!

Here is what hallmarkchannel.com says about Expecting a Miracle,

When Pete (Jason Priestley) and Donna (Teri Polo), a busy professional couple, are told their latest fertility test is negative, their world crashes down around them.  Their once-strong marriage quickly unravels and literally goes south when a business associate of Pete’s offers them the use of his vacation home in Mexico. But the getaway takes an unexpected detour across the border when they take a wrong turn on a dirt road, leaving them with a damaged SUV, far from a main highway and out of cell phone range.  When they spot a nearby sign pointing to the town of Dommatina, they agree to head there for repairs.  What happens in the tiny village over the next six days not only changes the lives of the couple but of all of the townspeople they meet, including a kind priest (Cheech Marin), a young boy with an infectious positive outlook, and his watchful older brother (Shalim Ortiz).  When all is lost, it takes a village to create a miracle.

It stars Teri Polo as Donna, Jason Priestley as Peter and Cheech Marin as Father Arturo.  I know it’s ironic to see Cheech Marin playing a priest when his name conjures up images of Cheech and Chong.  You can check out Hallmark’s press release, A Conversation With "Expecting a Miracle" Star Cheech Marin.  

Tune in tonight, December 10, 2009 at 9:00 pm EST and watch Expecting a Miracle on the Hallmark Channel.  Check out hallmarkchannel.com for additional show times and see photos and more.

We would love to hear what you think of Expecting a Miracle.  Hope to hear from you!
