With True Blood’s last season coming to a close, we are thrilled to finally announce that another of Charlaine Harris’s series is making its way to the small screen! The rights for her eight-book Aurora Teagarden series have been picked up by Hallmark and the books are now being adapted into a movie series as part of their new Original Mystery Wheel franchise, closely tied to the channel’s rebranding as Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
Full House star Candace Cameron Bure is set to play Aurora “Roe” Teagarden, the series’ small town librarian-turned-detective. Candace Cameron Bure and Charlaine Harris will also be executive producers alongside HF’s Jim Head and Muse’s Michael Prupas and Joel Rice (see The Hollywood Reporter for the full exclusive as well as Hallmark’s official press release).
True Blood’s success led fans of the show to become loyal readers of the Sookie Stackhouse series, and we’re excited for these movies to lead droves of mystery lovers to discover Aurora Teagarden!
