LMN Launches Innovative On-Air/Online Programming Initiative With Danica McKellar ('The Wonder Years') Starring In Original Movie 'Inspector Mom' On-Air, Followed By Eight New Webisodes on LMN.tv

- 'Inspector Mom' Premieres on LMN Saturday, November 18 at 8 P.M. (ET/PT) --

NEW YORK, Nov. 7 -- Welcome to the 21st Century version of a younger, hipper 'Jessica Fletcher.' In the new LMN Original Movie "Inspector Mom," Danica McKellar ("The Wonder Years") stars as a shopping crazy, cookie baking mother with two children and an incorrigible penchant for hunting down criminals in a 'secret' career.

Premiering Saturday, November 18 at 8-10 P.M. (ET/PT) on LMN, the second most popular women's cable network behind only sibling Lifetime Television, this innovative on-air/online programming initiative also features eight original "Inspector Mom" webisodes. The broadband content debuts on LMN.tv immediately following the on-air premiere of the movie.

In "Inspector Mom," McKellar portrays Maddie Monroe, a "stay-at-home" mom who is always on the go. Maddie has a knack for getting into the thick of people's lives, learning what makes them tick, helping them when they're down and exposing them when they do wrong.

Whether it's the murder of a villainous soccer coach, the poisoning of a cook-off judge, puzzling harassment of a sweet, lonely neighbor, or a dark secret told from the mouth of a babe, Maddie is there through it all: magnifying glass in one hand, diaper bag in the other.

Once the movie premieres on LMN, the online "Inspector Mom" mystery starts on LMN.tv. These webisodes unfold in eight, seven-and-a-half minute segments running from November through April 2007. The LMN.tv web site also includes special features such as an interactive mystery enabling viewers to find clues to solve the crime.

A new "Inspector Mom" two hour movie is then scheduled to premiere on LMN in April, followed by more original webisodes on LMN.tv.

Major blue chip advertisers Kellogg's and Walgreens are sponsors of "Inspector Mom," which will feature product integrations in both the on-air and online programming. These marketers will also be the sole sponsors of all "Inspector Mom" online initiatives including custom interactive games. The brand involvement was orchestrated with support from the marketers' media agency of record Starcom USA.

"Inspector Mom" is a production of Inspector Mom LLC. Brad Keller is executive producer/director.
