Lacey Chabert And Will Kemp Are Reunited
On Wednesday, ET announced that Lacey Chabert and Will Kemp are reuniting for a Hallmark mystery called The Dancing Detective: A Deadly Tango. The two actors have previously starred in two Hallmark movies, Christmas Waltz and Love, Romance, & Chocolate. Now, there are starring in a mystery together.
This new mystery “is set in the competitive world of ballroom dance.” Moreover, Will Kemp and Aubrey Day wrote the script, with Kemp and Lacey Chabert as executive producers.
Elizabeth Yost, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development at Hallmark Media shared a statement about this new mystery.
After the success of Christmas Waltz, viewers have been clamoring for another movie with this charismatic duo. When Will came to us with this fun spin on a whodunnit, we knew that it was the perfect opportunity to reunite him with Lacey.
This was one of the most unexpected, but completely thrilling announcements that Hallmark has made since the reunion of Alison Sweeney and Cameron Mathison in the upcoming Hannah Swensen Mystery!
What Is Hallmark Mystery The Dancing Detective: A Deadly Tango About?
In this new Hallmark Mystery, Lacey plays Constance Bailey. Constance is a “no-nonsense detective” who prefers to be solo when doing her sleuthing. However, things change when a high-profile CEO is murdered in Malta.
The murder took place the evening before a corporate event was to commence. The event? This event is a “high-stakes ballroom competition between senior executives.”
Now, the detective is participating as a participant. But, she has no dance skills. This means she has to team up with someone else. That person is performer Sebastian Moore (Kemp). Sebastian is “charismatic and free-spirited,” the total opposite of Detective Bailey.
“But with a killer on the loose and a growing list of suspects, it’s going to take more than a little fancy footwork to solve this case.”
When Will This New Hallmark Mystery Premiere?
They are currently filming this new Hallmark mystery in Malta. However, the network has not shared a premiere date yet. Stay tuned, as we will share the latest news as it happens!
Sleuthers, Kempers are you excited about this new mystery? Christmas Waltz fans, are you looking forward to Lacey and Will dancing together again?
