Hallmark Channel to debut its own Wills & Kate movie

Kate Middleton isn't even a princess yet but she's already the queen of TV movies: According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Hallmark Channel is following Lifetime's lead and turning her romance with Prince William into a small-screen biopic.

Airing August 13 at 9 p.m., "William & Kate: A Royal Love Story" is a biographical film that also explores the nuances of the modern monarchy.

"The love story of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which will culminate April 29, 2011, in the biggest royal wedding since Charles and Diana, chronicles the pair as young students at St. Andrews, William's Army training at Sandhurst Military Academy, their break-up, reunification, engagement and planning of royal nuptials, and advice from William's grandmother, the Queen," says Hallmark programming exec Barbara Fisher.

"William & Kate: A Royal Love Story" will be executive produced by Linda Yellen (who wrote the 1982 CBS TV movie "The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana") and has not yet been cast.

Meanwhile, Brit newcomer Camilla Luddington and "NCIS: Los Angeles" actor Nico Evers-Swindell will play the royal bride and groom in Lifetime's "William & Kate." The movie will air in the weeks surrounding the real-life couple's wedding.

    Instead of two wedding cakes perhaps William and his B!TCH could just place pieces of The Royal Doo Doo into one anothers mouth.

      Oh, chill out. It's not our fault that your parents (or parent, assuming you don't know who your father is) named you LAVONNE, thus reducing you to a lifetime of menial, civil service jobs or collecting food stamps. I'm gonna guess the latter.

    • @ Will Dweezy

      With a name like yours I wouldn't be talking. "Dweezy" where did you get that part from? You're not cool... stop lying to yourself. $100 bucks says "LAVONNE" isn't even black. Can't wait for the comment by "JAMAL" to show up next.

    This would rule if they would get Sir THomas Chong to play the part of Will. But i bet PeeWee Herman would be moe appropriate for the part.
