The Hallmark Movie Channel Original “Meddling Mom” premieres at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23.

A summary of the film, provided by Hallmark Movie Channel, are as follows:

Mothers are surely the most loving beings on earth, but there are times that they love a little bit too much, such as when they think they can run your life better than you. The three-time Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actress Sonia Braga (“Angel Eyes”) and Tony Plana (“Ugly Betty,” “Desperate Housewives”) lead an all-star cast in “Meddling Mom.” Braga portrays widow and meddling mom, Carmen Vega, and her two best pals, Marisol (Rose Abdoo) and Valeria (Saundra Santiago), do everything in their power to interfere in the lives of Carmen¹s grown daughters Yolanda (Ana Ayora) and Ally (Mercedes Renard). It isn¹t that Carmen is evil, she simply can¹t help herself: she leaves out baby books as a subtle hint for newly-wedded daughter Yolanda, she interferes in Ally’s date with Marisol¹s son Pablo (Rafael Amaya); it seems that there is no stopping this woman, but then again, maybe there is after all. Yolanda and Ally had just about had it with their mother¹s controlling, scheming ways and figure it’s past time to get her a life of her own and allow them to live theirs. They set her up on a date with the dashing ballroom dance teacher Luis (Plana), who already carries a torch for Carmen, but even with a budding relationship, Carmen can’t stop interfering with the lives of those around her; that even includes getting in hot water with Ally’s new boyfriend Ben (Rob Mayes) and his boss. There just has to be a way to teach her a lesson, after all, behind every meddling mom is an honorable mom struggling to get out.
