Based on the book The Santa Cruise by New York Times bestselling authors, Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark, the World Premiere of Hallmark Movie Channel’s The Mystery Cruise, the two-hour backdoor pilot and the network’s potential primetime series, is Saturday, October 5 @ 9p.m. ET/PT, 8C. “The Mystery Cruise” stars three-time Emmynominee Gail O’Grady (NYPD Blue, Boston Legal, Hellcats), Michelle Harrison (Emily Owens M.D.) and Larry Miller (Boston Legal) and will air on the network in 2014, should the pilot be greenlit to series.
The Mystery Cruise centers on best friends and impending partners, Alvirah Meehan (Gail O’Grady), a lottery winner turned amateur sleuth and Regan Reilly (Michelle Harrison), a private investigator. After the two heroines rescue the diamond-collared pooch of a wealthy socialite (played by Carol Higgins Clark), they set off with their spouses (played by Larry Miller and Peter Benson) to join Regan’s mom, (The 4400), a world famous mystery writer, on a luxurious three day cruise around the San Juan Island off the coast of Washington, the setting for a mystery game created to promote the release of Nora’s latest book. As the boat calmly sets sail, everyone is enjoying getting into character, especially Alvirah, who may or may not be the “murderess” in the mystery game. But troubled waters lie ahead when Alvirah gets a hunch that a real killer may be on board and together with Regan the pair teams up to take the killer down. Back on the mainland, Alvirah and Regan hang out their shingle in their fabulous Manhattan office to continue their sleuthing and crime fighting ways!
