Andie MacDowell stars in new Hallmark Channel show

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andie MacDowell says she hesitated when she was offered a chance to star in a new Hallmark Channel series.

MacDowell was eager to work on the drama, "Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove," based on novelist Macomber's books about a small town.

But the actress says she worried the project would interfere with finishing her "job" as a parent, with a daughter yet to graduate high school and still at home.

But she says a delay in production solved the problem.

"Cedar Cover" features MacDowell playing a small-town judge. The show debuts Saturday on the Hallmark Channel. It's the channel's first prime-time series.

If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
