Hallmark to screen mini series on Judy Garland

Hallmark Channel will premier ‘Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadow’ starring Judy Davis on Sunday January 6th and January 7th, at 9 p.m. The series captures Garland’s rise to fame, her turbulent personal life and tragic death. This movie will be in line with Hallmark’s earlier special programming like the Women’s Week and the currently running SLIDERS.

The mini series is based on the book Me and My Shadow, written by Garland’s daughter Lorna Luft. It follows her career from child prodigy to international superstar against the background of her personal and professional turmoil.

Since its release, Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadow has been the most watched made-for-TV movie of the US television season with over 20 million viewers. The mini-series won five awards at the 53rd Prime Time Emmy Awards in November and was nominated in a further eight categories.

Mr. Terence Yau, Vice President and Managing Director of Asia for Hallmark Channel commented: “Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadow won five Emmys – that is an outstanding achievement, with proven US ratings success (13.8 rating and a 21 share). Number 1 in adults 18 – 49 among all movies for television this season and Number 1 across every single demographic category. I am delighted that Hallmark’s 18 million subscribers in the Asia Pacific will be able to watch this miniseries in January.”
