The Hallmark Channel Original Movie “When Calls the Heart” premieres at 8 p.m. Oct. 19 and it’s a forerunner to a new series for the network set to premiere in January.

Details, provided by Hallmark Channel, are as follows:

Based on Janette Oke’s bestselling Canadian West book series, the Hallmark Channel Original Movie, “When Calls the Heart” is the story of Elizabeth Thatcher, a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom post in a small prairie town in the western frontier led by two strong coal miner widows, Abigail Stanton and Frances Tunnecliffe.  Set against the wild canvas of a 19th century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west.

The Hallmark Channel Original Movie is a precursor to the  next Hallmark Channel Original Primetime Series and features three-time Emmy Award-winner Jean Smart (“Designing Women”), Lori Loughlin (“Full House,” “90210″), Maggie Grace (“Taken 2″), Stephen Amell (“Arrow”), Daniel Sharman (“Teen Wolf”) and newcomer Poppy Drayton.

Lori Loughlin will continue her role in the series along with Erin Krakow (“Army Wives,” “Castle”) and Daniel Lissing (“Last Resort”) who round out the cast of the series set to premiere January 2014.
