Days of Our Lives – Fan Favorite Alison Sweeney Partner’s With The Hallmark Channel

Fans of Days of Our Lives would like nothing more than for Alison Sweeney to return to Salem permanently. Since that’s not likely at this time, fans are happy to see her partner with the Hallmark Channel for movies.

In the past, Alison completed five movies in the Murder, She Baked series: Just Desserts, A Deadly Recipe, A Peach Cobbler Mystery, A Plum Pudding Murder Mystery, and A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery. She played baker and business owner Hannah Swensen. Much like Days of Our Lives Sami Brady, Hannah has a knack for finding trouble. Also, like Sami Brady, Hannah has a way of gathering clues and investigating crimes better than the police.

Alison Sweeney has also done other movies for the Hallmark Channel including The Irresistible Blueberry Farm, Love on the Air and Christmas at Holly Lodge.

When Robbie’s childhood friend, Gina DeSavio, disappears she investigates the cold case. Robbie likes solving mysteries. She’s also getting ready to inherit the local newspaper, The Harrington Chronicle, from her Uncle. The new series of films will debut in March of 2019 on the Hallmark Channel.

Soap veteran writer Melissa Salmons joins Alison Sweeney as an executive producer for the movie. Melissa is a former Days of Our Lives writer. She was also a producer on Alison’s other projects: Christmas at Holly Lodge, Murder, She Baked: Just Deserts and The Irresistible Blueberry Farm.

As with many of Alison Sweeney’s other films, her newest series will also include soap opera veterans. Sweeney notified fans on Instagram that Linda Dano was cast in the movie. Dano is soap opera royalty. Linda Dano has played on numerous soaps. However, she’s most famous for playing Felicia Gallant on former Days of Our Lives sister soap Another World.

Fellow soap veteran, Cameron Mathison starred alongside Sweeney in the Murder, She Baked series.  Days of Our Lives actor, Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady), starred alongside Sweeny in the Hallmark Movie, Second Chances. On DOOL Sweeney and Vaughan play twins. In Second Chances they played potential lovers.
