Carey will develop, executive produce, direct and co-star in a trio of original movies, as well as compose and produce an original song for each TV movie.

The first pic in the two-year pact is slated to premiere during the channel’s 2017 Countdown to Valentine’s Day programming event.

Carey and Hallmark previously teamed up on December’s original movie A Christmas Melody, in which the multiple Grammy-winner starred and made her directorial debut. It drew 3.9 million viewers.

She also has the network’s most-watched holiday special to her credit: the same month’s Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas musical event.

Both were part of Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas block and came as the Hallmark Channel sponsored her sold-out Christmas concerts at New York City’s Beacon Theatre.

“We are honored to continue our collaboration with the multi-talented Mariah Carey,” said Michelle Vicary, EVP Programming at Crown Media Family Networks. “It’s rare to work with a talent who can produce, direct, star and also compose original music for a project, and we know she will deliver for our viewers once again.”

Carey also has her E! docuseries Mariah’s World bowing in the fall on E! which follows her on her international tour.
