WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A MOTHER'S LOVE TRULY KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES!

THREE-TIME GOLDEN GLOBE(R) AND EMMY(R) NOMINATED ACTRESS SONIA BRAGA AND "UGLY BETTY" STAR TONY PLANA LEAD AN ALL-STAR ENSEMBLE CAST IN "MEDDLING MOM," A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL WORLD PREMIERE FEBRUARY 16

Mercedes Renard, Ana Ayora, Saundra Santiago, Rose Abdoo, George Contreras, Rafael Amaya and Rob Mayes Co-star

A matchmaking matriarch learns to mind her own business when three-time Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) nominee Sonia Braga ("Angel Eyes," "Páginas Da Vida") and Tony Plana ("Desperate Housewives," "Ugly Betty") lead a long list of dynamic performers in the World Premiere of "Meddling Mom," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original on Saturday, February 16 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Joining Braga and Plana are Mercedes Renard ("NCIS"), Ana Ayora ("Marley & Me," "Phoenix Falling"), Saundra Santiago ("One Life to Live," "The Sopranos"), Rose Abdoo ("2 Broke Girls," "Gilmore Girls"), George Contreras ("The O.C."), Rafael Amaya ("Doctor Mateo," "Ugly Betty") and Rob Mayes ("Jane By Design").

Take Carmen Vega downtown and book her! Carmen (Braga) is guilty as charged of scheming with her two best friends, Marisol and Valeria (Abdoo and Santiago) to stick her nose in everything in her two adult daughter's lives. From secretly leaving baby books out for recently wed daughter Yolanda (Ayora) and her husband Rico (Contreras) to manipulating youngest daughter Ally (Renard) into a doomed date with best friend Marisol's son Pablo (Amaya), Carmen can't stop interfering. Now, the notorious mother of good intentions with equally hideous results is about to get a crash course in butting out!

A widow, Carmen is happier to intrude on her daughter's love lives than start one of her own, but Yolanda and Ally are tired of their mother's meddling and start scheming to set Carmen up with Luis (Plana), a handsome ballroom dance teacher who's crush on Carmen is no secret. Just as her family believes Carmen's finally got a life of her own, Carmen proves her nosy habits die hard when she accidentally gets Ally's new boyfriend Ben (Mayes) in trouble with his strict boss (John Nielsen, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen"). Suddenly, all the Vega women's relationships are on the line. Will Carmen ever learn her lesson?

"Meddling Mom" is The Konigsberg Company in association with Silver Screen Pictures production. Frank Konigsberg, Kyle Clark, Lina Wong, Patricia Clifford and Iris Dugow are executive producers. Eileen Fields is the producer. Patricia Cardoso directed from a script by Nina Weinman.
