IT'S GOOD WITCH V. BAD WITCH WHEN CATHERINE BELL STARS IN "THE GOOD WITCH'S FAMILY," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE OCTOBER 29

BELL SIGNS ON FOR A FIFTH MOVIE IN 'GOOD WITCH' LIMITED SERIES

Hallmark Channel's Highest-Rated Movie Series of All-Time

Catherine Bell ("Army Wives") has just inked a deal to make the fifth film in Hallmark Channel's highest-rated movie series of all-time, "The Good Witch." The next limited series installment will go into production in early 2012 for premiere later in the year. Meanwhile, Bell and Chris Potter ("Heartland") return to star in the World Premiere of "The Good Witch's Family," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie, Saturday, October 29 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). Sarah Power ("Saw V"), Catherine Disher, ("The Border"), Hannah Endicott-Douglas ("Casino Jack") and Matthew Knight ("The Grudge 3") co-star. This is the fourth installment of Hallmark Channel's highest-rated and longest-running Original Movie series, and is based on the characters from the original film, "The Good Witch."

Life is becoming routinely good for Cassandra "Cassie" Nightingale (Bell) as she settles into marriage with Middleton Police Chief Jake Russell (Potter) and as stepmom to Brandon (Knight) and Lori (Endicott-Douglas). But not everything in Middleton is good, fair or fair to middling. In fact, some things are downright bad. Evil blows into town in the form of Cassie's long-lost cousin Abigail, who whips up wickedness like a tornado darting across the Plains. The once peaceful Russell family bickers night and day; Jake is fired after an argument with the Mayor over a bridge expansion; and Martha (Disher), the Mayor's wife and town busy body, who is also at odds with her husband over the bridge issue, walks out on their long marriage. As the town divides further over neighborhood expansion, Cassie is drafted to run for Mayor. There is friction in her once-happy marriage, her family is unraveling, and Abigail's diabolical "double, double, toil and trouble" is the apex of Cassie's misery. What's a good witch to do?
