PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 11 -- World renowned novelist and publishing sensation Nora Roberts and legendary entertainment industry producer Peter Guber's Mandalay Television have joined creative forces with Lifetime Television to turn four of Roberts' best-selling novels into Lifetime Original Movies. Guber, along with Peter Strauss of Mandalay Television and Stephanie Germain of Stephanie Germain Productions have produced the upcoming movies "Nora Roberts' Angels Fall," "Nora Roberts' Montana Sky," "Nora Roberts' Blue Smoke" and "Nora Roberts' Carolina Moon." They are:

* Heather Locklear ("Spin City," "Melrose Place") and Johnathon Schaech ("That Thing You Do!") star in "Nora Roberts' Angels Fall," which centers on a woman who is the sole survivor of a restaurant massacre, now trying to rebuild her life only to find herself once again at the center of a murder mystery.

* John Corbett ("Sex and the City"), Ashley Williams ("Good Morning, Miami"), Charlotte Ross ("NYPD Blue") and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning actress Diane Ladd ("Alice") star in "Nora Roberts' Montana Sky," which tells the story of three half sisters who meet for the first time when their father dies, only to learn that they must live together for a year in order to receive their sizable inheritance. "Nora Roberts' Montana Sky" premieres Monday, February 5, at 9 PM (ET/PT).

* Alicia Witt ("The Upside of Anger," "Cybill"), Matthew Settle ("Brothers & Sisters," "Band of Brothers"), Scott Bakula ("Star Trek: Enterprise," "Quantum Leap") and Talia Shire ("Rocky," "The Godfather") star in "Nora Roberts' Blue Smoke," about Reena, a young woman who, after watching her family business burn to the ground as a child, becomes an arson investigator and steps into the greatest inferno she has ever faced. "Nora Roberts' Blue Smoke" premieres Monday, February 12, at 9 PM (ET/PT).

* Claire Forlani ("Meet Joe Black"), Oliver Hudson ("Dawson's Creek") and Jacqueline Bisset ("The Deep") star in "Nora Roberts' Carolina Moon," which focuses on a unique young woman who returns to her hometown to confront the violent memories of her childhood.
