In addition to starring in the “MatchMaker Mysteries” franchise for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, McKellar serves as executive producer. She stars in “You, Me & The Christmas Trees,” which kicks off the 2021 Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” programming event, and in 2019, she starred opposite Dolly Parton in “Christmas at Dollywood,” which she also executive produced. Next up, she will star as a judge on “Domino Masters,” which premieres on Fox in January 2022.
