One for the Money, Two for the Show, Three Murder Suspects, Go 'Mcbride' Go!

[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]



All New Episode of MCBRIDE, �Tune in for Murder,� Premieres August 14

When a popular drive-time radio host is arrested for murdering his partner, it seems like a slam-dunk case � until McBride uncovers a list of other suspects that includes virtually everyone else at the station. Five-time Emmy� Award-winner John Larroquette (�Night Court,� �The John Larroquette Show�) returns as tough-minded, tender-hearted cop-turned-attorney, McBride in �Tune in for Murder,� a two-hour Hallmark Channel Mystery Movie which premieres on Sunday, August 14 (7/6c).

McBride also stars Marta DuBois (�L.A. Law�) as Detective Sgt. Roberta Hansen and Matt Lutz (�Murder Without Conviction�) as Phil Newberry.

Created by mystery master Dean Hargrove, the Emmy� Award-winning executive producer of �Columbo,� McBride is one of television�s most inventive characters, a rough-around-the-edges smooth-talker whose laid back lifestyle belies a razor sharp mind and dogged determination to uncover the truth.

Detective Sgt. Roberta Hansen (DuBois) is the no-nonsense plainclothes police detective who finds the flirtatious McBride arresting, but skittish. McBride�s young gumshoe partner, Phil Newberry (Lutz) is a gadget die-hard with the latest techno wizardry to help McBride sniff out bad guys. Jesse (Kuma) is McBride�s constant companion who remembers the days when a dog with a good nose could do the same thing.

McBride only takes the hardest cases, has a soft spot for the underdog, and possesses a unique ability to eliminate potential suspects through flashbacks that place him squarely in the scene of the crime.

McBride is a Hallmark Entertainment presentation. Robert Halmi, Jr. and Larry Levinson are executive producers. Dean Hargrove is creator and executive producer. Nick Lombardo, Amy Goldberg and Michael Moran are co-executive producers. Brian J. Gordon and Erik Olson are producers. Steven W. Bridgewater directed �Tune in for Murder.� Jeff Peters wrote the script. The Hallmark Channel Mystery Movie is an Alpine Medien Production in association with Larry Levinson Productions.
