Hallmark Channel was set to continue its miniseries-in-a-night game plan --
started with its Johnson County War Western opus last month -- Sept. 8
with Hans Christian Andersen: My Life as a Fairytale, a four-hour
portrait of the famed storyteller.
Hallmark's presentation -- the scheduling of which was not known until late
this past week, when public-relations representatives sent kits through
overnight mail -- was originally set to go Sept. 8 and 9.
But in a last-minute move triggering another overnight delivery to media,
Hallmark went with a one-night stand for Andersen. The show runs from 6
p.m. to 10 p.m. EST and PST.
