'Mystery 101: Deadly History' stars Jill Wagner and Kristoffer Polaha in key roles as they look for a history professor who is missing
'Mystery 101: Deadly History' is Hallmark's upcoming signature mystery movie. The two-hour-long feature will trace a missing person case filmed in textbook detective style, the kind we are familiar with.
More on the film, but first here are a few film titles you could consider for your weekend movie binge: 'To Catch a Spy', 'Morning Show Mysteries: Murder Ever After', 'Mystery 101: Killer Timing', and 'Crossword Mysteries: Riddle Me Dead'.
Release date and how to watch
'Mystery 101: Deadly History' will premiere on August 1, Sunday, at 8/7c. For those who do not live in the United States, using a VPN will help your case. If you don't have access to cable TV, subscribing to live TV streaming services such as Philo, Sling TV, Vidgo, and Fubo TV will be a wise idea. Most offer free trial subscription plans.
The official synopsis reads: "The day after the events of 'Killer Timing', a concerned Amy Winslow (Jill Wagner), Travis Burke (Kristoffer Polaha) and Graham Winslow (Robin Thomas) travel to Ithaca, New York to find Amy’s Uncle Alastair (Peter Benson), a history professor at the local college who is missing. Also gone is all of Alastair’s research on the accidental death of a prominent family heir 50 years year ago – a death he believed may have been murder. Amy and Travis join forces with the local sheriff as they work their way through a maze of clues and suspects, including an acerbic corporate CEO, an eccentric patriarch, and Alastair’s estranged wife – a literature professor who, like Amy, specializes in crime fiction."
Wagner, Polaha, Thomas and Benson aside, 'Mystery 101: Deadly History' also stars Lorne Cardinal (Sheriff Ridgeway), Michael Patrick Denis (Olly Kent), Rhinnan Payne (Lucy Harding), Jenn Maclean-Angus (Sinead Sullivan), Alison Araya (Jennifer Espinosa), Iris Quinn (Eleanor Kent), Jason Cermak (Marco Deleon) and Emma Grabinsky (Janey Sullivan) in key roles.
'Mystery 101: Deadly History' is a Lighthouse Pictures Inc. production with Kristofer McNeeley serving as the executive producer and Jamie Goehring, Shawn Williamson and John MacCarthy as producers. The feature is directed by Stacey N Harding and written by John Christian Plummer with Ryan McMaster as the Director of Photography.
