About “The Cases of Mystery Lane”
- Paul Campbell plays Alden Case.
- Campbell gave an interview where he said he loved wearing the ridiculous disguises and playing characters in this movie.
- Aimee Garcia plays Birdie Case. She is new to Hallmark but is not a newcomer to acting. She has 81 acting credits including last year’s Netflix holiday movie “Christmas with You” also starring Freddie Prinze Jr., 80 episodes of the series “Lucifer,” many years on the HBO series “Dexter.” Appears she does a ton of voice work as well.
- This movie was written by Joel Dovev and Margaux Froley who are married and this is their first joint writing credit as well as first Hallmark movie for the both of them.
- According to Heavy.com, this was originally written to be an hour-long TV series about an eccentric husband and his straight-laced wife to end up teaming up as private investigators to solve mysteries and end up saving their marriage in the process. Apparently it was passed on by network TV but Hallmark ended up grabbing it.
- Directed by Mike Rohl. You might remember we mentioned his name at the beginning of the year. He has 61 directing credits including tons for Hallmark but so many more. We mentioned him because he is the father to actress Kacey Rohl who played art student Lily in The Wedding Veil Inspiration.
- Paul Campbell super fan Caroline Richardson (also known as @hallmarkiescaroline3 and co-host of Hallmarkies Podcast) started a petition on Change.org to get Hallmark to commit to turning this movie into a franchise. At the time of taking notes, the petition was at 408 signatures, including the one and only Tyler Hynes.
