Martha Stewart, move over — you may be replaced by Marie Osmond on TV if talks with the Hallmark Channel pan out. The New York Post is reporting that Hallmark wants to replace “The Martha Stewart Show” with a daily show helmed by Osmond.
“While we’re still in discussions with Marie, we’re extremely excited about the prospect of Marie Osmond joining the Hallmark family,” a Hallmark spokeswoman said. “We think she’s perfect for our brand and we’ll share more news when we have a deal.”
Earlier this month, Hallmark announced that it would end Stewart’s show after the current season, partially due to its high production costs. If Hallmark and Osmond can sign a deal, the show would be called “Marie” and debut in September.
Do you think the Hallmark Channel is moving in the right direction by courting Marie Osmond?
