Grammy winning R&B artist Mariah Carey has inked a three picture deal with the Hallmark Channel to develop, executive produce, and star in the network’s original films.  She will also compose original songs for each film that she stars in.

Carey has already established a successful track record with Hallmark.  She made her directorial debut with Hallmark’s original film A Christmas Melody, and was responsible for Hallmark’s most watched holiday special, Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas.  The network also sponsored her sold our Christmas concerts at New York City’s Beacon Theatre.

“We are honored to continue our collaboration with the multi-talented Mariah Carey.  It’s rare to work with a talent who can produce, direct, star and also compose original music for a project, and we know she will deliver for our viewers once again.” – Michelle Vicary, EVP Programming, Crown Media Family Networks

In addition to her deal with Hallmark, Carey will release her E! docu-series titled Mariah’s World this summer, and it has been reported that she is currently producing original movies with Stella Bulochnikov.

The first film apart of the Hallmark deal is scheduled to be released Valentine’s Day 2017.
