LOS ANGELES (July 20, 2013)--Andie MacDowell says she hesitated at first when she was offered a chance to star in a new Hallmark Channel series.
She said she was eager to work on the drama, "Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove," based on novelist Macomber's books about a small town, but said she worried the project would interfere with finishing her job as a parent, with a daughter yet to graduate from high school.
A delay in production solved the problem, she said.
In "Cedar Cover," MacDowell plays a small-town judge.
The show debuts Saturday on the Hallmark Channel as the channel's first prime-time series.
