Mariah Carey is getting back into the director’s seat with a new three-movie deal with Hallmark.
The multiple Grammy-winning singer is teaming up again with the network to develop, executive produce, direct and co-star in three original movies as well as compose at least one song for each, Deadline reported.
The first of the three films is to be released during the channel’s Countdown to Valentine’s Day programming early next year.
“We are honored to continue our collaboration with the multi-talented Mariah Carey,” said Michelle Vicary, EVP Programming at Crown Media Family Networks, in a statement. “It’s rare to work with a talent who can produce, direct, star and also compose original music for a project, and we know she will deliver for our viewers once again.”
This is the second time Carey has teamed up with Hallmark. December’s original movie, “A Christmas Melody,” starred the pop diva and also marked her directorial debut.
