Lifetime Plans "Aurora Teagarden" Telemovies

Author Charlaine Harris, whose Sookie Stackhouse novel were the basis of HBO's "True Blood" series, is teaming with Hallmark for a new series of telemovies based on her eight-book "Aurora Teagarden" series which ran from 1990 to 2003.

Candace Cameron Bure ("Full House") is onboard to play the title character of Aurora 'Roe' Teagarden, a librarian who is also a crime buff, a lover of mystery novels and a member of the Real Murders Club who meet to analyze famous crimes and mysteries.

Her insight into true crime ends up putting her at the center of different crimes that happen in her community.

Teena Booth ("Cyberbully") will pen the script for the first telemovie which Bure and Harris will executive produce. It's not presently clear how many movies Hallmark is planning, or which of the books it will adapt first.
