Don’t miss the ultimate foodie event, The Baltimore Sun's Secret Supper

'When Calls the Heart'

Shown recently on Hallmark Channel, this drama based on books by Janette Oke ("Love Comes Softly") is yielding a new series for that cable outlet. Though she won't be in the weekly version, Maggie Grace ("Taken,""Lost") plays a novice educator who's seen in flashback as her niece (Poppy Drayton) begins her own teaching career in a similar manner, starting hers at a frontier school.

Lori Loughlin - who will return in the series - also stars along with Stephen Amell ("Arrow") and Jean Smart. As director and executive producer here, Michael Landon Jr. continues his father's goal of all-family entertainment. *** (Not rated)
