HALLMARK CHANNEL ANNOUNCES PRODUCTION START FOR ‘WHATEVER, MARTHA!’
Third Season of Critically Acclaimed Series, Co-Hosted By Alexis Stewart and Jennifer Koppelman Hutt, Set To Return In 2011 With 26 All-New Episodes
NEW YORK, June 11, 2010– Whatever, Martha!, the critically acclaimed series in which hosts Alexis Stewart and Jennifer Koppelman Hutt showcase their colorful, witty and sometimes surprising opinions about domestic doyenne Martha Stewart, will go into production next week for a third season. The announcement was made today by Laura Sillars, Senior Vice President, Lifestyle Programming, Hallmark Channel, and Bernie Young, EVP, Broadcasting, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
During each episode of the wickedly funny half-hour, which Entertainment Weekly called "juicier than any steak the domestic diva ever cooked up," Jennifer and Alexis (who also host Sirius/XM’s Whatever! With Alexis and Jennifer, a daily radio show on Martha Stewart Living Radio; and a yet-to-be-titled daily talk show that will premiere September 13 on Hallmark Channel) provide their personal take on vintage episodes of Martha Stewart Living. In this third season, the pair will also have access to footage from the very first season of “The Martha Stewart Show” which premiered in 2005.
The MSLO-produced series, which was created by Martha Stewart after watching old episodes of Mystery Science Theatre, was a critical hit at launch, receiving raves from publications across the country including Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, The New York Times, and New York Magazine among others.
“Whatever, Martha!” is a production of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in association with Hallmark Channel
