New York - Andie MacDowell will be a pioneer for the Hallmark Channel, starring in the network's first prime-time series.

Hallmark said on Wednesday that MacDowell will portray municipal court Judge Olivia Lockhart in Cedar Grove. It will start with a two-hour movie airing later this year and continue with a 13-episode series early in 2013.

The new series is based on books by author Debbie Macomber. Movie adaptations of Macomber's books have been among the top-rated programmes that Hallmark has shown over the past three years.

MacDowell's movie credits include sex, lies and videotape, Groundhog Day and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
