Hallmark Movies & Mysteries leaves its mark on Black History Month this weekend with the premiere of A Nashville Legacy, an all-new movie (and the second) under its Mahogany banner. The film stars Andrea Lewis (pictured above) and Pooch Hall (pictured below, right) and features a stellar supporting cast including Roz Ryan and Stan Shaw -- along with special appearances by musical artists The Shindellas, Curt Chambers and American Idol season two winner Ruben Studdard. Based on true events, and filmed on location, the movie is set amidst the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville. Legacy marks Lewis' Hallmark Media debut, and, for her, the fact that it's an engaging mystery steeped in Black history made the project the perfect entry into the Hallmark family.
