Revisit the Classic Series with Eight Made-For-TV Movies from the ‘90s Featuring Guest Appearances by Jason Bateman, Marion Ross, Wendie Malick, Joan Collins, Richard Belzer, Alec Mapa, and More
Ovation TV, America’s only arts network, will celebrate New Year’s Day with a Hart to Hart movie marathon. The classic mystery series starring Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers recently began re-airing on the network in mid-November. Originally, after the fifth and final season of the successful series aired, Wagner and Powers reunited to film eight thrilling made-for-television movies between the years 1993 and 1996. Viewers can now travel back to the ‘90s and watch all eight feature-length mysteries in one place: beginning at 9 am ET on New Year’s Day on Ovation TV.
These eight whodunits featured guest appearances from across television and film, with notable silver screen stars like Maureen O’Sullivan (The Thin Man), Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes), and George Hamilton (Where the Boys Are), as well as beloved soap and sitcom legends Joan Collins (Dynasty), Marion Ross (Happy Days), and Vicki Lawrence (Mama’s Family). The films also include appearances from popular actors working today, like Jason Bateman (Ozark), Alec Mapa (The Housewives of the North Pole), and Wendie Malick (Young Sheldon).
